Cwm Cadlan

I had a couple of hours wandering round Cwm Cadlan this afternoon. First bird I saw when I got out of the car was a male Redstart disapearing into a possible nest hole. A year tick, and the first of 3 singing Redstarts around the reserve. Walking down the path I saw my first Wood Sorrel of the year. A Cuckoo was calling and eventually showed, a couple of Tree Pipits were singing and a male Whinchat showed nicely on the fence. Only one butterfly - a Green-veined White - was evident.

I then headed over to the limestone pavement ridge, very quiet bird wise, though a couple of very nice male Wheatears were a delight. No sign of any Dottrel.
