A two hour walk along the Usk today in splendiferous weather produced - three young Kingfishers, first brood probably with another brood hopefully to come. Two Common Sandpipers, two Green Woodpeckers, five Great Spotted Woodpeckers (three youngsters), two Spotted Flycatchers, a number of young Grey Wagtails and twenty plus Swiftts around the church and old vicarage. At least thirty Jackdaws perched in a tree in the field next to the church making their distinctive calls. A small number of Banded Demoiselles also flying near the river.

A post breeding flock of at least 120 Starlings were around Felincamlais pool, Mynydd Illtyd. The largest I have seen locally for some years, however very scattered and difficult to get a precise count. In Brecon, I was convinced I heard a Spotted Flycatcher singing to the south side of Morrisons - some tall trees and gardens there above the charging point. Called in to Trallong common on way back and had Yellowhammer and singing Tree Pipit. The most interesting record was at the old railway bridge structure to the side of the Usk there, where a pair of Sand Martins perched at a (engineered) slot hole in the bridge on two occasions.

We have a Little Owl regularly visiting the garden and sitting in one of the apple trees, but flies off when spotted, usually returning later. Lesser Whitethroat singing in the hedgerows frequently, but remains stubbornly hidden from view.
