First an update on the little Peregrine chick.
I went to see it again yesterday, and couldn't believe how much it has grown since I last saw it, twelve days ago.
Back to some other stuff.
A Pied Flycatcher. The male. A short video too.
The first bird I saw when I arrived here about 3 weeks ago was a Redstart.
A lovely bird, and one I don't see that often at home.
I've counted five around the area I'm staying, and they seem to be everywhere I go.Another short video too.
Another bird that seems to be everywhere here, and not at home, is the Stonechat.
On past visits here, I've managed to see a few Wood Warblers at a couple of locations.
This year has been different though. Not so many around, and I didn't find them easy to capture with the camera.
I did persevere with one though.
And you've guessed it .................
One bird that was easy, a group of Chaffinch.
Very used to people.
Even checked out the car for food.
Finally, a bird that travels over 3,000 miles to get to Wales every year, to breed.
It takes them 6 weeks to get here, they pair up, mate, raise their young, and then in mid August, they spend 6 weeks flying back to west Africa.
They are the second rarest breeding seabird in Britain, and have a special area of beach at Gronant all to themselves; complete with 24hour security.
The Little Tern.
And because they're so special; a short video.
That's it for now.
Have a good week.
