12 noon. Four Great Egrets, three Little Egrets and 8 Herons along the reedbed edge. 225 Canada Geese. A few Meadow Pipits and Redwing scattered about which may have attracted a jack Merlin to patrol the area.

Lot of Gt Spotted Woodpecker activity in garden trees today. Repeated rapid drumming followed by multiple birds giving simultaneous alarm calls then short dashing flights in wide circles returning to the drumming tree. At least 6 birds seen in this melee. Spring in the air? Also 4 Goldcrest making their way through garden trees with mixed party of tits (blue, great, coal and long tailed).

A winter walk around the lake today on a glorious morning produced very little bird life, the exceptions being a brief Water Rail typically dashing across the gap in the reedbeds and two Redpolls feeding on seeds in the reeds in front of the hide. We did, however, spook twelve Common Snipe as we approached the car park.

Saw the post by E Nick & thought I'd call in at the Glanusk Cafe for a look - close views of a good variety of species including C5 Brambling . Male Brambling ; male Siskin & a Goldfinch all together on one feeder was quite a sight . Surprised to see a Grey Wagtail joining in as well , picking up bits dropped by other birds .

Two walks. Walk 1 :- Cefn-Brynich & Lock house to Millbrook Mill along ( by the side ) of the river Usk produced many birds. By the side of the frozen surfaced canal in the trees were 6 blue tits, 6 great tits, 2 coal tits, long-tailed tits, 2 robins, 2 nuthatches, house sparrows, a wren and a female bullfinch at the top of an ash tree. Looking from the bridge east onto the river Usk were 2 herons and a red kite perching in an ash tree. Approaching Millbrook Mill by the waters edge was a cormorant which was unusual. Coming back, from the same bridge I saw the herons and kite, there was a grey wagtail and the back of a beautiful kingfisher speeding past under the left side of the bridge and into some trees on the left. Walk 2 :- Priory Groves Wood. Anod Bridge to the Pendre and back ( North-South-North ). A healthy wood full of bird life. Numerous blue, great & coal tits. 2 long-tailed tits, 4 robins, GS woodpecker, buzzard, red kite, nuthatch, blackbirds, flocks of chaffinches and the best bird of the day and my 1st ever Brambling ( we don't get them much in the south-east of Wales ). 3 Bramblings, 2 females and 1 male. Photographed 1 female brambling, such a fast small and colourful bird. A beautiful day amongst the mountains.

Best place to see a Brambling today - Glan Usk cafe Sennybridge - and you can have your lunch too! I'm very jealous of the range and number of birds they have on their birdtable outside the cafe window.
