A great day on my reserve today, so many birds I didn't know which way to look. Over the rapeseed field were 500 plus woodpigeons with many stock doves mixed in, 300 plus linnets/goldfinches to which a hobby made a poor attempt of catching one. On the reserve, probably over 50 warblers including a few blackcap, a singing willow warbler and lots of chiffchaffs. At least 3 spot fly's still here and a juvenile green woodpecker.

On a chilly morning, little cheer. Single Yellow Wagtail amongst the fodder beets and 2 Whitethroat in hedges were the highlights. Also 100 House Sparrows, 70 Carrion Crows, 2 Buzzards, Red Kite. 2 Herons on pool. Brechfa Pool; hardly worth mentioning. Nil. All life sucked out by non-native weed carpet.

Up to two Ring-necked Parakeets have been reported this week on the Radnor Bird blog flying round the gardens at the bowling club end of North Road in Builth, just south of the Wye, which would put them on our side of the border.

One of only 2 rapeseed crops in the area has attracted large flocks of swifts, goldfinches and linnets throughout the summer and yesterday there were about 60 swifts feeding over the crop and over the reserve. Also to my delight 3 spot fly's were on the reserve including 2 juveniles.
