A walk down to Glandwr yesterday evening did not reveal the hoped-for Great Snipe.  I went back this morning (early) and again, no Great Snipe.  However, there was a single 'chipping' Snipe, 3 male Cuckoos chasing each other and all singing at the same time, Sedge, Reed and Grasshopper Warblers.  A single Cetti's singing from close to the further pool and also a Water Rail close by.  Two Cattle Egret with sheep in usual area and the Ring-billed Gull distantly in its usual field.  Worth getting up for.
