The Cattle Egret was feeding in a flooded field with a Little Egret near Cathedine. 2 Swallow were battling against the wind over the lake and the nasal saddled Tufted Duck was in front of the hide.

Anything up to 7 kites on a daily basis for the last 2 weeks, and from first almost (unusually ) to last light, arriving at Fennifach all day from an easterly direction as they follow the front line of the myxoma virus on its very slow progression from east to west.They'll be well set up for winter.

Entry added by: Alan Salter on Thu 11th October 18, 08:37pm Sighting location: Y Byddwn, Groesffordd. Sighting date: 11/10/18
At least 2 tawny owl males singing and 2 females calling, 1 of which was probably with 1 of the above males. These were heard from the reserve tonight and a flock of about 300 corvids at 7pm presumably heading for their roost site.

A Cattle Egret was at Llangasty and then properly among cattle in a field to the south. A county first, overdue with so many now in Britain. Also a Little Egret, 3 Dunlin, 2 Snipe and a Common Gull

More wildfowl at the lake today, at Llangasty 21 Wigeon, 6+ Shoveler, 10+ Gadwall and 59 very flighty Tufted Duck that contained a nasal saddled bird (see the ringing page for full history). Also at Llangasty an eclipse drake Mandarin - not the crannog bird, this one can fly! Also single GW and Little Egret and an adult Common Gull.

Entry added by: Andrew King on Wed 10th October 18, 07:09pm Sighting location: Brecon Town. Sighting date: 10/10/18
Spent a few hours in the St Davids/Ffrwdgrech areas of town today. 5 Buzzards, 2 Kites and in the woods rather quiet. Plenty of Coal Tit and a few Chaffinch busy making stores of a very large beech-nut crop, to help sustain the winter. 6-7 Jays too on less-bountiful Acorn crop. rather few Goldcrests, Nutchatch, Treecreeper, M Thrushes, S Thrushes. About 15 Siskin, and a few Crossbills heard but not seen. A commotion in the top of an Oak turned out be a male Goshawk being ambitious in taking a resting/sleeping Woodpigeon. It flew off and held it for 2-3 wing-strokes before the Pigeon woke up and started flying too, ripping itself free.
