02/06/2024 at Penwyllt

Aiming mainly for butterflies I arrived at Penwyllt after mid-day and found that there were at least 9 Herring Gulls wheeling around the big cliffs within the former quarry workings before they moved on up the slope. As I walked south along the former railway track more gull calls were heard and I turned to find 100-150 gulls there with the majority being Lesser Black Backed gulls with a scattering of Herring. Along the track there were a family party of Wheatear and Redstart carrying food. Insects were thin on the ground with a single Dingy Skipper, 2-3 Small Heath and a single Small Tortoiseshell amongst GV Whites. A Mother Shipton moth also present. Yesterday there were at least 4 Red-necked Footman moths within the dense mature forestry of south Glasfynydd forest at Cwm Feity. Three Wood Warbler territories were found there but tree felling has possibly disrupted the usual distribution

02/06/2024 at Penwaundwr/Nant Cnewr Fawr,

After finding one or possibly a pair of Spotted Flycatcher in a mature Spruce block at Penwaundwr I then stopped at the other two blocks on square SN9022 and found feeding Spotted Flycatchers at each of these so these shelter belts seem to be useful breeding habitat for this species in the western uplands where they are quite frequent. The Epynt MOD has loads of these so it would be good to think they all have pairs. Also present were 2 Tree Pipit territories, 2 Crossbill, Cuckoo and Lesser Redpoll

31/05/2024 at Glasfynydd forest, south

Despite a doubling of suitable habitat due to clear felling only a single Nightjar churred at SN8625. Started at 21:36 and fairly regular until at least 22:00. Nothing heard there on a previous visit in the first half of May. Good populations of Song Thrush and many Willow Warbler on both visits. At least 2-3 Meadow Pipits displaying in the forestry brash (too late in the day for Tree Pipit song)

30/05/2024 at Talybont reservoir

9.45pm - 10.30pm, 3x night jar seen on hillside behind the southern hide on Talybont reservoir. Viewing from the road, there's a clearing with views up the hill a short distance south of the hide layby. Couple of brief sightings right by the road, including 2 chasing eachother. Not much churring which is unusual. Also 1 more churring heard whilst heading home about half up the reservoir.

26/05/2024 at Llangorse Lake

Barnacle Goose P25 which is paired with an unringed bird was fiercly defending 3 young goslings on the crannog island as they tried to make their way accross the Island through B01's territory. A pair of Canada Goose on the Acorn field had four goslings, 3 yellow and 1 grey, it did cross my mind that they may have adopted a Barnacle gosling?? On the sailing club meadows 2 Ringed Plover, 1 Little Ringed Plover, 2 Curlew, 2 Oystercatcher (including the right leg metal ringed bird) one of which was making repeat journeys to the crannog island. Two family groups of Mute Swan with 3 cygnets at Llangasty and 6 at the crannog.

From Llangasty side, good sightings of osprey hunting over this side of the lake at 1 pm - watched for 10 minutes before the persistent harassment of a small group of gulls caused it to move on. Four hobbies spotted further along, and cuckoo calling in the distance.
