A joint trip to count the heronry, 7 nests. Also seen 1 Coot and 1 Mute Swan nest with incubating birds. Possible/Probable breeding records for Mallard and Tufted Duck. Dont ask for an atlas code, just single males on sentinel duty with females and thus the nests not located. A pair of Little Grebe also present.

Entry added by: John Harper on Thu 1st May 08, 07:38pm Sighting location: TTV SO22G Cwm Banw & Grwyne Fechan. Sighting date: 1.5.2008
Valley farm and forestry.. 3 - 5 prs House Sparrow at each farm... Dunnocks, Wrens and Blue Tits so sparse... Carrion Crow, Mistle Thrush & Tree Creeper FF... New breeding evidence feature for L-t Tit are markedly bent tail feathers from the cramped nest.. It beats me how one is supposed to cover habitats in the valley and then climb 1000' to survey - all in two hours- !
