A first for our garden today, in fact a first for any garden we've had in and out of UK. Joining a host of finches, tits, thrushes and blackbirds a single well marked female Yellowhammer...too quick for the camera unfortunately.

Looks like our Ferruginous Duck has crossed the boarder to Llanbwchllyn Lake in Radnor - seen there yesterday and today.

Entry added by: Andrew King/Keith Noble on Sat 10th March 18, 09:25pm Sighting location: Llangorse Lake. Sighting date: 10/03/18
Keith's walk to the Wall found 11 Curlew, 30+ Lapwing, 15+ Goosander, Scaup, 2 Pintail. At Llangasty at dusk we had 3 m Common Scoter, 34 Goldeneye, 11 Pochard, 2 GWEgrets, 1 LEgret, at least one singing Cettis survived the chill - and waited for the gulls to arrive. Approx counts were 1550 BHGulls, 1500 LBBG, 500HG, 2 GBBG, 20 CGulls and late in came the 1st-w Iceland Gull. This has now been in the area for at least a week, first found at Ty Mawr Pool (Llanfrynach) on 1st March, probably nightly at the Llangorse roost and likely also the bird seen at Brynmawr by day.

A look round the big pool gave 6 herons, 4 kites, 1 buzzard but best of all for me a pair of curlew are back. Must be spring. A sparrowhawk put up the golden plover they split up but estimate 50 plus
