where are all the birds

A frustrating day with Martin and Phil. We decided to bird around the Aberthaw area - looking for any migrants about. Mist made viewing difficult early on, but a steady, if somewhat thin, passage of Swallows, Meadow Pipits, Skylarks, Linnets and Goldfinches was noted. But nothing out of the ordinary.

With the phone telling us the Cattle Egret was still at Kenfig, and a Yellow-browed had been found there earlier, we decided to nip over to the reserve. Bording was again quiet, though Martin and Phil did manage to get on to a late Garden Warb. A wander through the dunes failed to find any sheep, never mind the Cattle Egret.
The day was saved by a mixed party of small stuff, mainly Long-tailed Tits, that included a single Marsh Tit.
