RSPB Dinas – Back Again

Another trip to the magical Dinas again on the weekend, this time with the Glamorgan Bird Club. Friendly faces and always good to chat with like minded folk.

For May the Tywi was in speight and it was a chance to get the Pied Flycatcher against a backdrop of a raging river, not a normal sight. The first part of the day the heavens opened but we got a better afternoon.

The bluebells were at their best too, so another game, trying to get the Redstart and Pied Flycatcher with something of the blue behind them! I stayed on after the group had left to give it sometime and whilst never getting quite what your after, it was time well spent in a wood that was quietening down after quite a few visitors.

I also managed to get some decent shots of a Tree Pipit or two and the Wood Warbler, which gets increasingly difficult as the season progresses and the trees come into full leaf.

At the end of the day it’s always good to get a Yellowhammer fix. Worth going for this alone

There’s a link here to a recent post that looks at a new book I’ve been involved in, and in which I’ve written about a dawn chorus in this very reserve.
