Uwchmynydd Migrants

Drove to Uwchmynydd this morning - nearly flattening a leveret on the way - and did my regular circuit around the fields, lanes and maritime heath in lovely hot sunny weather.

Plenty of visible migration was happening with the usual suspects dominating - Chaffinch, Siskin, Starling, Skylark, alba wagtails and hirundines. Two noisy flocks of Crossbill - totalling 16 birds - headed over.

Other species included 3 Wheatear, 12+ migrant Coal Tit plus small numbers of Blue & Great Tit, 2 Chiffchafff, 5 Goldcrest, 29 Linnet and 4 Yellowhammer.

Good to see the local Choughs doing well with 27 over Mynydd Gwyddel and a few more scattered around.

Had brief views of a small Adder on the heath which scuttled into some gorse while a visitor reported a new born Grey Seal pup in Porth Felen.
