Early doors ( 06.00 ), near Brecon sewage works, on the Usk,3 Kingfishers, 2 Goldcrest ,treecreeper 3 Grey Wagtails, two female goosanders and a party of 30 L T Tits. Later:11.15 Juvenile Arctic Tern @ Llangasty, also an Osprey fishing on the lake, caught fish and flew off in the direction of Brecon. Bearing in mind the report some days ago of an unidentified,possible Osprey,in the trees on the canal at Brynich,i drove to the canal and immediately saw the Osprey being mobbed by 20/30 swallows causing the bird to fly off north. Could this bird be what the previous reporter saw ? Also from the road bridge at Brynich a Hobby being mobbed by the same swallows.

A large juvenile female Peregrine was sitting in the middle of the road between Llangasty and Pennorth at 3.15pm today.It only flew off when I was almost on top of it.There was two C Crows in the trees cawing so perhaps they mobbed it to the ground?

On info. received from MOD staff went and found a juvenile Osprey on the Range. It was ringed but due to low mist was unable to read clearly. Sitting on edge of plantation, which could be argued as in Carms. by 5metres!!
