Some wader passage still going on: adult Little Stint in breeding plumage (only the second spring passage sighting, most occur in autumn) and a Whimbrel calling heard from the garden at 11pm last night.

A walk into Talgarth revealed the Lesser Whitethroat still singing near the roundabout between Bronllys and Talgarth, showing only briefly, also a diversion to the Afon Lyfni showed that the recent floods have created some steep sided sandbanks and it was nice to watch a small colony of Sand Martins excavating their nests,also here I heard Spotted Flycatcher and Kingfisher, A Hobby is becoming more regular over Bronllys, with 2 in display flight recently.

Lapwing latest - since the 2nd May. The failure of all six first clutches of eggs had occurred by late-April as the spring barley fields were sprouting. By 7th May, all six females had laid second clutches of eggs in new nests. By 11th May, two were already predated (crow?), and four still incubating. By today, just two females are still incubating and one (polygynous?) male checking on them both. These two still have 10+ days before hatch so chances not good, although the crop is shielding them better now. All failed birds have left the fields.
