Chiffchaffs etc

Last Sunday Jerry Moore had a singing Chiffchaff in forestry below Craig-y-pistyll and I told him I was expecting a spate of records in the next few days and would post them together to avoid repetition.  Well it didn't happen, but this morning I had my first, a silent bird near the riverbank by Morrisons.
I was probably more pleased to find a Greenfinch nearby, in view of their diminishing numbers.
A Peregrine which flew inland over Pendinas and a Sparrowhawk over Morrisons were welcome additions to the usual Buzzards and Kites.
