Craig Cerrig Gleisiad

A small group of us were on a Glamorgan Bird Club trip to Craig Cerrig Gleisiad [above the A470 N of Storey Arms] this morning, and after some patient scanning of the crags, eventually saw a couple of male Ring Ouzels, which obligingly sang for us. We thought there were perhaps 3 or even 4 birds due to the calls heard, but only 2 were seen. Couple of silly shots below to give some idea of how far away they were [‘scopes essential]. The one shown was right on the top of the ridge as can be seen. Also seen in flight there, 2 Peregrines, a few Red Kite, and in the nearby wood by the youth hostel some common woodland birds but Pied Flys, Redstart etc not yet arrived.
