Synopsis of the last few days around the area. Very little on Mynydd Illtud, just a rew flocks of Mipit and Linnet. Battle Hill, one lingering Northern Wheatear at the rocks, in the forestry one Willow Tit calling and showing briefly. Aberysgir trig point, also one Northern Wheatear and two Red Kites bathing in the small pool below. On the Usk two Dippers, Kingfisher and a few Grey Wags.The trout season finishes today so hopefully a bit quieter for wildlife from now on. At the 'Lake' a single Common Snipe flushed from the mud at the side of the car park, a Kingfisher persists from the car park railings across to the landing in front of the hide.Three Hobbies, one adult and two juv's still hunting dragonflies.The forecasted north wind will probably see the end of them this week. A single Reed Warbler in the reeds and willows at the car park today. Disappointingly yesterday I again witnessed two canoes full of people thrashing about around the east shore adjacent to the car park (You know the so called 'Nature Reserve') with one individual actually wading around the shallows shouting and waving its arms - perhaps in some sort of mating ritual, I'm not qualified to say really!

Mostly just the usual species today on WeBS count. Of most interest were 47 Cormorant, just 58 Canada Geese, 16 Wigeon which arrived high from the north at 07.15am as I started, 1 GW Egret, 3 Teal, 7 Gadwall, 189 Mallard, 49 Moorhen and 215 Coot. Also saw 130 Linnets at Cathedine, 120 Goldfinches (one taken by male Sparrowhawk) and 8 Stonechats scattered about the Llangasty meadows. Hobby hawking Dragonflies from Ty Mawr Wood.

Only one Swan and 11 Mallard actually braving the river with 2 (possibly deaf) Goosander pretending to be rocks on the bank. The remainder keeping away from the canoe hubbub were on the oxbow and other pools. The middle field had been freshly sown with wheat attracting a large throng of 55 LBB and 45 BH Gulls, 80 Crows, 25 Jackdaw, 6 Rooks, 12 Pied Wagtail plus 1 Wheatear.
