This morning Julian Friese and I set off to walk up to Tair Carn Isaf a hill of nearly 500 metres and one of the regular places for seeing Dotterel on migration. Sadly we failed to see those gorgeous birds on this occasion but the walk was exhilarating to say the least. Bright sunshine made the task a little easier and we did note at least 20 Skylarks and 10 Meadow Pipits holding territory. We also discovered 4 pairs of Wheatears, a Red Kite, Raven and a passing Swift.

Crossing the Tywi Valley we stopped to listen to a couple of sedge warblers before heading home pretty tired out.
