Singing male Redstart and Pied Flycacthers back in the wood this morning along with several Marsh Tit. Tried to convince myself I heard a Wood Warbler but not 100%.

Willow Tit survey second visit. More selective in the route and playback points than on the first visit in late-Feb when 2 territories were located. Today found 4 territories of Willow Tit. Evenly spread out, average separation of 900 metres (range 450m - 1450m). Also a pair Raven, 7+ Chiffchaff, 2 singing Blackcaps, 2 Crossbills and several displaying pairs of Siskin.

At Llangasty 2 Common Gull were flushed from the point by a female Goshawk. A House Martin was around the next field and 100+ Sand Martin were feeding over the water. 2 Little Ringed Plover and 2 White Wagtail were on the sailing club meadow. A third white wagtail was at the crannog from where 50 Teal were seen to flush from the sailing club meadow on to the lake in front of the hide. A drake Garganey was with them and may have been with a female, but even with scope views across the lake it was hard to be sure. Also 4 drake Pintail.

First swallow over the house at 12.00 on the same day as a visit by a Redpoll and 2 willow warblers. Haven't had a Redpoll in the garden since winter 2017/18. Usually only appear after several consecutive hard frosts. Still many Goldies and Siskins taking seed. Male Sparrowhawk makes a pass every 40 minutes or so. Having us in the garden must be very frustrating for him. 4 Buzzard and a Kite over the Usk towards Crickhowell.
