Entry added by: Gareth Rees on Sun 15th October 17, 05:08pm Sighting location: Llyn y Fan Fawr. Sighting date: 15/10/17
Misty and windy. 3 Snipe, 3 Carrion Crow and a Meadow Pipit on the way to the lake. 3 Redpoll were unusual feeding near the lake and a Ring Ouzel flew up near the top of the steep path to Fan Brycheiniog. Another silent LBJ was flushed further up the path to the trig but it disappeared into mist without being identified.

Entry added by: Gareth Rees on Fri 13th October 17, 09:07pm Sighting location: A-40. Sighting date: 13/10/17
Too late for birds on the A-40 this evening (18:40-18:50) but probable large Noctule bats were just east of Abergavenny, just east of Crickhowel and 3 on the hill down from Bwlch near the Llangynidir turn. All were flying surprisingly low (such that they would be at risk from high sided vehicles) over the road so easily visible in the gloom.
