Aberaeron and Cross Inn Forest

Highlights of 30 species at Aberaeron included two singing Whitethroats, two pairs of Stonechat, Wheatear, numerous Linnets, Swallow, House Martin and Swift.
34 Species at Cross Inn included two singing Lesser Whitethroats in the second clearing, also three Whitethroats and two Wood Warblers.
Cuckoo heard in Cwm Wyre area and Tree and Meadow Pipits seen. A Lapwing was on a grassy area by the brackish pools with another flying and calling frantically as a pair of Red Kites appeared.  I've never recorded nesting Lapwing here; has anyone else?
