Chaffinch ( a welsh one!)
Most of the resident birds here are now busy feeding fledglings however, with a few species bringing up second broods or maybe late ones. One of those species was the GOLDCREST two new families were found in the Wet Woods and Scrubby Woods.
Treecreeper ( again a welsh bird!)
BULLFINCH, NUTHATCH, TREECREEPER, COAL TIT, JAY, STOCK DOVE, GREEN and GREAT SPOTTED WOODPECKER were all seen in the Scrubby/Wet Woods, but there has been no sign of a Long Tailed Tit here since early June.
The lakes had 24 CANADA GEESE and 4 GREYLAG GEESE, all with mixed age young with them, just 3 MALLARDS were present, a scattering of MOORHENS, plus the MUTE SWAN and COOT families.
Flyover were few, but included GREY HERON, BLACK HEADED and HERRING GULL, BUZZARD and a few parties of SWIFTS. All four KESTREL young were seen around the Greenhouse Grounds, where at least 3 WHITETHROAT families have now fledged. A LITTLE OWL called from the adjacent Greenhouse Copse, but that was about it for today.
Ive set up another page with images of Pied Flycatchers that I took in Wales, you can click here to view them, or click on the tab labelled ''Pied Flycatchers'' that can be found under the header image. Here's couple to kick off with :-)
