Calling curlew

Entry added by: Peter, Ruth, Ted Jenkins and Jerry Lewis on Fri 1st March 19, 02:46pm Sighting location: Llangorse Lake Hide. Sighting date: 27/02/19
R-N Grebe was present for most of afternoon, giving progressively better views as the day went on. Cettis singing and at least 3 Water Rail calling at hide, including two seen crossing or around jetty. No sign of Bittern booming!

Managed to get to the hide for the last 25 minutes of daylight yesterday (26th) but no sign of the RN Grebe. Some consolation was a single distinct boom from the Bittern to the west of the hide at 17:21. My first VC42 record and had Steve not reported it earlier I would not have believed my own ears. This was followed by three distinct Water Rail calls (two close on more distant) and three Cetti's blasts (again two close to the hide and one distant). As I walked back to the car park another birder was busy photographing the RN Grebe and I was able to get some views in the fading light (thanks Damian). Of three Willow Tit surveys covered this weekend only the Usk reservoir, SN82J was positive (4 territories, one of which in Carmarthen, 1 Marsh Tit overlapping one WT terr). SN92H, Senni valley, mostly improved farmland gave Marsh Tit only (exact spot I recorded them in Atlas). SN81R, Pant Mawr forestry had neither species (I have never recorded WT in this area). The forestry here, which is open moorland on a early 1970s OS map I have, appears much more uniform without the patches of deciduous present at the Usk (upland farmland before the valley was flooded). Several massive cleared areas were scrutinized for Shrikes without success. This area must be well stocked with Nightjar in the summer months. Sm Tort (2) and Peacocks on the wing.

A scrumdidleyumptious day today at the lake - the R N Grebe continues to happily drift around and the G C Grebes were performing their mating ritual in front of the hide - now's the tine to see it! I thought I was imagining it the first time, but after a further two repetitions there was no mistaking a Bittern 'Booming' from the reedbeds to the west of the hide.
