Warbling through June
With Gill and Rosie otherwise occupied, my mother and I successfully found a Dartford Warbler at a traditional site near the coast in the Vale of Glamorgan on 14th June. On 16th June, we fluked good views of both Wood and Garden Warblers from the Taff Trail near Blaen-y-glyn whilst we looked for Siskins (several present), Redpoll (a couple of flyovers), and Crossbill (heard). After a pleasant lunch in Crickhowell, we headed towards the Blorenge, and a female Redstart flew across the road in front of us. A walk from the Foxhunter car park produced a family of Wheatear, with both parents feeding young.
