The weather is still cold but gorgeous sunny skies with no cloud. I decided to go up into the Brecon Beacons nearest to our house looking for birds. I started at Palycwrt with some success. After stopping to look at a male Stonechat I suddenly saw some Fieldfares ahead. Moving closer there were three but also a superb female Ring Ouzel feeding on the short turf. Sadly I could not get a photograph.
I moved on through the hills but saw little else so pushed on to the kite feeding station at Llandeussant. I was a bit late for the feed but in time to see at least 40 Red Kites circling around the area. I was able to get some photographs here.

I finished up on Llangadog common standing on the bridge where a pair of Goosanders were together fishing and a Dipper flew downstream. Looking carefully around the grassy areas I found a male Wheatear and felt spring was just around the corner.
