10/04/2024 at Llangorse Lake

An Arctic Tern was feeding off Llangasty and a drake Ring-necked Duck was on the flooded sailing club meadows with 5 Pochard (2m3f), see photos in the gallery. The drake spent much of its time very close to the reedbed out of view. Please don't approach closer than the wall as the wildfowl there will only flush or retreat to the willows & reeds. A Reed Warbler was singing by the wall. Still 4 Goldeneye, 10 Wigeon, 51+ Teal, 17+ Tufted, 15 Gadwall, 3 Greylag and 5 singing Cetti's. Five Coot nests have been washed out by the increased lake levels, and the crannog island is under water again forcing all 41 Barnacle Geese back on to the Acorn field where sadly most of their rings are so muddy at the moment they couldn't be read.

03/04/2024 at 'Breconshire' heronries

Of the 8 established heronries counted annually in late-March for the BTO Heronries Census there has been a large increase in nests this spring. A total of 107 occupied nests. Reasons are unknown, apart from the obvious one that we have not any icing or severe winter weather for years. All 8 (3 actually just metres over the borders with Rads & Glam) are stable or increasing with the biggest increases at Sennybridge and Garth.
