Otter @ Gilfach

A large otter (male?) wandered down the Marteg near the railway bridge first thing yesterday. I watched from 50m away as it turned over stones. On the BTO Atlas tetrad I had around 40 species (see the Radnor bird blog), despite the weather. Also the bluebell woods on the the other side of the Wye from the Pont Marteg carpark is in full bloom and also full of Pied Flycatchers. The pastures along the footpath from the footbridge over the Wye also had several Small Copper and Small Heath butterflies and I saw a Hornet near Nannerth. The whole area is well worth a visit right now.
