Spring has sprung

After a couple of weeks when my coaching took precedent, it was nice to get out birding today. A wander round Mill Road, Coed Cefn-fforest, Parc Taf Bargoed and up over Craig Fargoed. Highlights were at least 6 singing Blackcaps - all in sub-song. A pair of Stock Dove were new for CCF, as were a couple of Common/Field Voles. Parc Taf Bargoed was quite wildlife wise as there was a Universities canoe polo competition on, though 6 Canada Geese on the upper lake was of note.

No sign of the Little Owls in the Elm they frequented this time last year. Nor any sign of Ring Ouzel or Wheatear yet.

Plenty of Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock's and 3 male Brimstones. I had a white flit past but couldn't get anything on it to get it down to species level.
