Entry added by: M&W Evans on Mon 30th March 20, 11:31am Sighting location: Llangynidr and canal towpath. Sighting date: 30/03/20
Over the last 6 days we have taken very early morning walks along the canal and the Usk in both directions from Llangynidr. Splendid Mandarin drake above the triple locks. Numbers of Chiffchaff and singing Blackcaps. It's been a good winter for Song Thrushes, Bullfinches, Wrens, Treecreepers and Robins which appear to be in larger numbers now than previously. Mistle Thrush pairs in at least four territories and 4 pairs of Dipper located one of which is completely new to us. The nest of this pair is perilously close to the low water mark, first time breeders? Our garden in Lower Llangynidr continues to attract Marsh, Long tailed, Blue, Coal and Great Tits in large numbers.
