A Glorious Day

I took a quick look round this afternoon in warm sunshine.  Silage cutting was leading to some good numbers of Red Kites hunting overhead near Cilsan Bridge.  At Mynydd Figyn a lone Tree Pipit sat on overhead wires but I was particularly pleased to find a calling Cuckoo as well.  I have found 3 in Wales this year but did not hear or see one at all in 2011.

I spent an hour in a neighbours wood just south of Taliaris.  The birdsong was glorious with Blackcaps being the most numerous.  A single Garden Warbler was also present as well as Chiffchaffs and Willow Warblers.  Around the pond there was a pair of Spotted Flycatchers and 6 Crossbills flew over.
