Nothing hugely exciting to report from this part of Llanwrthwl at the moment. The redstarts and flycatchers nested successfully and young green woodpeckers are active in the garden. A juvenile heron has been visiting the ponds in late evening, and two young yellowhammers have been seen in the last few days. Soprano pipistrelles have a large maternity roost in the kitchen chimney but the long eared bats seem to have moved elsewhere – occasional signs of moth wings but not as many or as regularly as last year. Heard a barn owl shrieking here for some time last night. Squirrels are being a pest but have discovered they dislike safflower seeds and millet and am putting this mix on the ground with successful results!
