Entry added by: John Harper on Sun 23rd June 19, 04:32pm Sighting location: Black Mixen Common. Sighting date: 21/06/19
Late afternoon on Black Mixen Common some distance from the RWT reserve I heard a snatch of Turtle Dove purring - twice. I immediately recognised it as it brought back memories of hearing the so-characteristic song on the Trellech commons all those years ago. Later I was entertained by several minutes of Nightjar song every 90 minutes or so through the night. Is there a Radnor Bird site like this one for bird records ? {John - you can try 'radnorshirebirds.wordpress.com' and hopefully one of the Rads birders can check to see how long it carries on 'purring for'.

Pleasantly surprised to find 3 territories of Common Sandpiper among the 33 species recorded at Crai res today as I had failed to find them at any western reservoir over the last 2 years. Even more surprised to flush a passage Redshank. Best of other species were 23 Willow Warbler, Whinchat (1 female), Cuckoo (1), Whitethroat (1 male), Tree Pipit (2 terr.), Redstart (2 families). At least 5 Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary were near the dam.

This was the 2nd redstart family further along the lane from the first one sighted. Male female and approx. four juveniles flighting across the road between the tress
