Grasshopper warbler reeling at two sites in and around Pant Mawr forestry. Coverage of several large cleared areas gave just 5 Tree Pipit and 5 Redstart territories. Avoiding waterfall tourist crush on the way back a Curlew call was heard from Coelbren village suggesting a territory at Gors Llwyn is still occupied.
