Checked the A470 reservoirs for osprey this morning but with no luck, checked with the rangers and they too are waiting their first sighting. A strange man in the bird hide reckons they will not turn up until the butterbur gets its leaves ?? [I strongly advise avoiding eye contact with any one you meet in this hide]. Note WW have leased Cantref to Merthyr Angling so its been stocked for the first time in 2 years, so any osprey passing through may hang about for easy pickings. Other than that just c4 singing willow warbler at Cantref this morning, only 3 nests at the heronry and my first house martin over Cwm Cadlan on Tuesday 7th, soaking wet and at knee height.
