5 singing Yellowhammer and a singing Tree Pipit were the highlights and the predated remains of a Swallow was found. The common is a carpet of wild flowers at the moment so there were good numbers of Meadow Brown & Ringlet butterflies along with some Speckled Wood, Red Admiral and Small Tortoiseshell.

Scores if not hundreds of hirundines of all four sp feeding over the fields between Pencommin and the canal this pm. Haven't seen so many Swifts here in Llangynidr in the eleven years we've lived here. A neighbour who has lived here since the Pencommin was built says it reminds her of late summer in the mid sixties.

Raptor; handle-bar-moustache shape wings, when soaring; more-rapid wing beat than kites, buzzards which used to seeing; slightly smaller than both; visible from significant distance, so larger than kestrel, for example. Goshawk, hen harrier? [Thanks, John; 2 raptors come to mind with angled wings -Marsh Harrier or Osprey. AK]
