Entry added by: Neil Farr on Sat 1st August 20, 04:30pm Sighting location: Craig Cwm-du and secluded waterfall below Fan Frynych (629m), Nr. Heol Senni.. Sighting date: 26/07/20
A male redstart in hedge just after Forest Lodge. Walked from Plas-y-Fan to Craig Cwm-du and secluded waterfall. There were four linnets in a hawthorn tree on the Sarn Helen roman road on the left side, meadow pipits, a young buzzard in the sky, two red kites and a green woodpecker heard in a tree (larch). Beautiful yellow welsh poppies by the sides of the Nant Cwm-du, heather, wild thyme and various other wildflowers. Just below the waterfall on the right side of the stream flew a male ring ouzel. Lots of berries ( rowan tree's) here so good supply of food. On the return a grey wagtail sat in a larch tree opposite the stream, a male whinchat on top of gorse, a blackening waxcap (common, July-November) nr. the bridge on the left side of the roman road and two goldfinches on thistles. A good habitat with good bird life.

1 Migrant Whinchat, on high ground near Bronllys, also small numbers of Pied wagtail passing through at the moment, very good year for House Sparrows in and around the village, with lots of young appear to be everywhere.

Entry added by: Alan Salter on Tue 21st July 20, 07:56pm Sighting location: Y Byddwn, Groesffordd. Sighting date: 21/07/20
My first Y Byddwn record of a hobby today, also surprisingly a greenfinch and a very likely juvenile spotted flycatcher despite the usual pair having not been observed as in previous years though they probably bred nearby as saw one on 2 occasions.

An agitated Tree Pipit and a calling Willow Tit were at the southern entrance of Coed-ty-Mawr Libanus. Two fledged Stonechat familes of different ages were at Storey Arms with a pair of Whinchat nearby that were taking food to young still in the nest as well as having juv's from a previous breeding attempt in the same area. Also a Spotted Flycatcher and a juv Redstart.
