rain, rain, and more rain.....

A damp WeBs this am at Parc Taf Bargoed produced a record number of Mallard (52), helped with three broods of 5, 9 and 10 ducklings. The brood of 10 were at least 3/4's grown so look like they will make it to full adulthood. Moorhen with 2 half grown chicks in the reed beds, with another adult elsewhere in the reed beds (2pr?). 4 Reed Warbs heard at three area's within the reed beds so looks like 3prs are breeding (a site record) and 2, poss 3 male Reed Bunts on territory.

A wander round CCF produced to family parties of Great Spott peckers, with drumming hear at two localities, looks like 3 pair of Green peckers also bred. Plenty of Blackbird, Song Thrush, Blue and Great Tit families, but looks like only 1 pr of Redstart have bred this year. No Spot Fly's or Wood Warbs seen/heard. 1 Tawny Owl seen well in its daytime roost.
