Kestrel at Cors Caron

Kestrel hunting over the Ystrad Meurig end of Cors Caron at 10.30 this morning.
 Also sedge warbler, G S Woodpecker, Blue, Great and Long-tailed Tits, Swallow, Swift and House Martin, Crow, Jay and Magpie, Kite and Buzzard, Robin, Blackbird, Song Thrush and Woodpigeon.

Interestingly the Curlews were calling around our House in Ffair Rhos as usual in March, April. Then not heard until about ten days ago when suddenly for about a week many calls every day, I think a succesful fledge as saw three or four flying together a couple of times. Almost certainly nested on or around Pen Y Bannau. Nice to know they are still around  but not as many as when we moved here ten years ago.
