My Ty Talwyn 29th April 2016

There were some signs of passage migration today with 5 Wheatears [2male,3female] passing through and regular singles of Swallow also. Redstart, Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff could be heard singing from Cwm Nant Gwyn Woods. Resident birds displaying included Meadow Pipit and Skylark. The pre breeding gathering of Linnet was down to 25 from 60 a fortnight ago. Buzzard numbers have dispersed leaving  just the breeding birds [4prs down from 21 birds max]. Ravens were tumbling over My. Baeden and the Stock Dove flock [max 120] have disappeared for now.

Only other sighting was of a Brown Hare running along the road in front of car then disappearing into trees and trying to hide from the car, but I managed to snap it through the car window.
