Whinchat 16th May, Craig Cerrig Gleisiad

A cracking pair of Whinchats, below the steep slope where a Ring Ouzel called occasionally, and gave a brief glimpse. A Spotted Flycatcher was flitting around, and a few Redstart were seen. The male Whinchat had an aerial tussle with a male Stonechat about 20 yards from us, and seemed to win, as the Stonechat retreated. A Tree Pipit was performing near the road.

Nice shots Tim! I've been to CGG twice this spring and haven't seen a whinchat yet! Haven't seen one anywhere else for that matter.
