08/05/2024 at reed beds by the bird hide, Llangorse lake

A beautiful misty and warm morning seemed to encourage Reed, Sedge (heard but not seen) and Cetti’s warblers. No sign of feeding ospreys which I assume are sticking to the Usk for food at the moment.

06/05/2024 at Talybont on Usk and Gilestone farm

Ospreys. Please would people wishing to observe the birds note the following: 1. there is no parking at Cross Oak, please use Talybont and walk along the towpath. 2. Please do not use the hump back access bridge by the canal side cottages for observations. The best viewing area is from the seat about 100 meters west of that bridge towards Pencelli 3. There is NO access onto the farmland there, including the track that runs from near the canal side cottages. There is a large exclusion zone around the nest which must be complied with. The birds are especially sensitive to human presence and disturbance and unfortunately yesterday, Sunday, there are reports of such behaviour. Many thanks,

At least 2 Cuckoos heard calling here today also 2 Grasshopper Warblers, while at Gilestone Farm Talybont - on -Usk, 2 Hobbies seen together. As for American Robin on Buckland Hill, its not impossible but highly unlikely, more possible is the Merlin App is an American version Gary in my opinion (SN798107)

I'm not sure how good the Merlin app is, my friend last week picked up an American robin on the app. I was on Buckland hill at 1pm and I picked up the American robin. do we get the American robin in the UK.

Andrew King at 27/04/2024 18:27: Gary - a common fault of Merlin i am afraid. Read Common Redstart or Robin for 'American Robin'.

Walking from Llangasty towards the flooded meadows, the purple heron flew up from the reeds just beyond the hide. Flew in the direction of the meadows, but exact landing spot was out of sight.
