Tree Pipit

Had a wander down Porth Meudwy mid-morning; the weather was mild and calm with the cloud lifting and it became a beautiful sunny day.

Good to see some visible migration occurring with a steady passage of hirundines, finches, pipits and wagtails.

Totals for species overflying the valley came to: 5 Skylark, 282 Swallow, 46 House Martin, 1 Tree Pipit, 33 Meadow Pipit, 7 Grey Wagtail, 20 alba wagtails (plus 10 White Wagtail sharing an adjacent field with 2 Wheatear), 23 Linnet and 1 Siskin.

The group of  presumably the same 3 vocal Chough were again by the cove while a total of 11 Raven headed over.

The site also held: 1 Song Thrush, 2 Whitethroat, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 11 Blackcap, 12 Chiffchaff, 9 Goldcrest, 2 Bullfinch, 1 Yellowhammer and a Great Spotted Woodpecker amongst other common species.
