Heol y Cyw

Pleased to see young bullfinch with female parent in garden. Had pair of bullfinch present for last 4 years but this is first young I have seen.

The three young great spotted woodpeckers seem to have dispersed (hopefully nothing more sinister) after being ever present. Young green woodpecker(s) daily as are at least two nuthatch. Feeders are busy with tits – up to 5 each of long tailed, great and blue tit and 2 regular coal tit together. Goldcrest and treecreeper showing occasionally but pretty secretive.

The large groups of mistle thrush seem to have moved on with singles seen occasionally as are song thrush.

Up to three buzzard together with single red kite and two raven are regular (likely daily if I spent more time in the garden – thankfully the raven are always vocal). Plenty of jackdaw, carrion crow, magpies and still have a couple of jays present. Suspect sparrowhawk could be daily but I spot one once or twice a week.

Average of around 15 species daily either in or over the garden which climbs into the 20’s if I spend a bit more time observing. Had 26 on 7th August. A bit less rain would be nice.

    I like reading your occasional diaries Martin, and jealous of your birds. BUT I heard a Willow Warbler ina neary tree today! Might be my first in 25 years here, haven’t checked yet.
