Well done, Geoff - it is nice when two reports corroborate the same bird. The Osprey was seen by two fishermen there at 11am Thursday morning, successfully taking a fish! This bird must have found the Cantref stop-over from its northward migration to its liking.

Whoopers still present at dusk (18:45). Nearby one chipping Snipe with probably 4 wintering heading off at dusk. Previous evening 3-6 Water Rail calling at Y Gors Trecastle (widespread wel flooded sub-sites) and 54 Snipe. North winds seem to have arrested migration so keep an eye on all freshwater sites.
