Tresinwen (07 May 12)

2 Spotted Flycatchers back in the garden - 15 days late compared to last year!  These NE winds have really delayed things this year.  The brief respite yesterday and the light SW winds today seem to be helping birds move through finally.

2 Siskins in the garden early morning and 2 Lesser Redpoll this afternoon.  Also Sedge Warbler singing behind the pond and at least 2 Blackcaps.  Good numbers of Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs around and still lots of hirundines passing through.  2 Mistle Thrush passed through late afternoon.
