After a trip to Somerset yesterday decided to stay closer to home today. Usual walk around Porthsychan and coast path to Lighthouse.
Lots of Chiffchaffs and Whitethroats singing. Lesser Whitethroat singing continuously at the bottom of Porthsychan valley. Three Common Sandpipers on Porthsychan beach. Fall of about 20 Wheatear in the small field at the head just below the old coastguard lookout.

Blackcaps seemingly every few yards beyond Alt Y Clyn & on past Cwm Gwaun in suitable habitat. Of the expected big 3 summer visitors only a single singing male Pied Flycatcher in the wood just past Llanerch Farm where you park on the bend & go through the gate. It was a couple of hundred metres along the path close to the derelict building, singing from high up on the bank & moving around as they do, there were however numerous singing Willow warblers again quite close together. At the same site a male Sparrowhawk hunting the woodland edge gave good views as he perched up.
