On one of our exercise walks, from the house in Beddau, at approx. 0645, amazed to see an OSPREY flying slowly but steadily, exactly north, at perhaps twice tall tree height, over the Common – possibly en route from overnight local water roost (Hensol Lake ??) towards potential breeding site in Mid-Wales or even Scotland.
Another 37 species joined it on our complete list as submitted to Birdtrack – included Raven carrying food for young, Stock Dove singing, Redstart singing (a first for us in this vicinity) – other summer visitors included several Whitethroats (at last), lots of Willow Warblers and Blackcaps, several low-flying Swallows (again, at last).
