Chiffchaffs at Brecon STW. One in a riverside willow, and soon afterwards two together in hawthorns bordering the Works. Late afternoon light very low, so was surprised to get a bad but recognisable photo with flash. Also plenty of blue and great tits, c10 long-tailed, one or two goldcrests and a treecreeper.
