Entry added by: Mark Waldron on Sat 13th May 17, 01:14pm Sighting location: Coed Carno, Tarrell Valley. Sighting date: 12/05/17
Yesterday a walk around Coed Carno gave some good birds the highlight being a Tawny Owl that gave me the eyeball before silently drifting off into the wood (not the same bird as I've posted in the gallery). I've struggled to find Tawny Owl in the Tarrell Valley but this spring I've found birds in 4 different locations. Also around the wood were territories/singing males of 1 Spotted Flycatcher, 5 Pied Flycatcher (1 FF), 10 Willow Warbler, 6 Chiffchaff, 9 Blackcap, 3 Goldcrest, 3 Redstart, 1 Tree Pipit, 2 Nuthatch (both FF), 2 Treecreeper (1 FF) and a calling male Cuckoo. Also feeding young still in the nest were LT Tit, Great Tit, Song Thrush as well as a newly fledged Robin. 25 species seen.

Entry added by: Andrew King on Fri 12th May 17, 05:28pm Sighting location: Llangorse lake/Talybont Res.. Sighting date: 12/05/17
Nice range of waders. At Llangorse Common - 10 Lapwing, singles of Greenshank and Oystercatcher. At Talybont Res, 2 Common Sandpiper, and single Little Ringed and Ringed Plover. I thought there was something odd about the Ringed Plover, and realised its left leg had a metal ring, and the right leg a yellow 'flag' above the knee with what appeared to be 3 letters/numbers but distance beat me, even with the 'scope.

31 species around Brecon Golf Club including a Garden Warbler, 4 Spotted Flycatcher, 3 Blackcap in song, 5 Chiffchaff, 1 Willow Warbler and 3 Bullfinch. A pair Goldcrest were feeding 3+ young still in the nest as were House Sparrow, Blackbird, Song Thrush and LT Tit that had newly fledged young in the riverside trees.

Entry added by: Bob and Gwil Griffiths on Tue 9th May 17, 07:28pm Sighting location: South Brecs. Sighting date: 09/05/17
In Cwm Llia we came across a family of 4 or 5 fully fledged Stonechats with one parent bird. Nearby a Whinchat and several Wheatears. In the Senni Valley some Cuckoos were calling with a bubbling female nearby. Green woodpeckers were calling and we caught glimpse of the Pied Flycatchers. Several Redstarts

One Whimbrel and two Curlews, 2 Coot chicks and lots of Black-headed Gull activity at Brechfa Pool. A pair of Curlews chased a Crow on Llandefalle Hill, with one or two more present.

My first Spotted Flycatcher of the year this morning at Llewel. Wood Warbler at Halfway. 12 Garden Warbler males singing at 7 sites west of Sennybridge (A40 corridor) although for the second year running they seem to be very absent at usual sites in the village itself.
