Recent sightings

At Llyn Mynydd Gorddu on Wednesday were four male tufties and one female. I wonder if three females are incubating at the moment? Also present were coot, moorhen, canada goose, mallard (quite a few males and one family with six ducklings), and little grebe. The garden warbler was still noisily present and there were a very few swallows and one house martin overhead. 

The red kites at Salem have one chick, and there is a small colony of swifts around the chapel. I found a pair of pied flycatchers feeding young yesterday.
