RSPB Ynys-Hir / Dyfi Osprey Centre

A morning walk round Ynys-hir.  Another gorgeous day with plenty going on.  A reeling Grasshopper Warbler was the first sighting of the day, taking the 'red' route out into the open area.  It then flew around a couple of times being harassed by a Sedge Warbler.

Another spectacular reserve, the route produced a singing Common Redstart perched on the very top of a pine.  A really special sight.  A Tree Pipit sang from within the woodland as did a Wood Warbler.  There were at least three singing male Pied Flycatcher here.

Also of note were plenty of Siskin on the feeders, and at least four Redpoll flew over.

Then onto the Dyfi Osprey Project where the pair were in-situ, the male Osprey gorging on a juicy red mullet.
