Been very busy these last few weeks and have thoroughly enjoyed spending time with my wonderful family. Birding was been put on the back burner though I had a few notable birds in Wales including: Raven, Red Kite, Dipper, Wheatear, Whinchat, Spotted Flycatcher and Tree Pipit. We had a fantastic trip starting with meeting two of my old army friends in Brecon. They both had plotted to dress as 'birders' and ambush me. However, their plans didn't pan out as I turned up early:) Sorry lads..anyhow we had a brilliant night and it was great to catch up after 22 years!
Most birds noticed were seen while hiking the Pen y Fan....A fantastic hike and one I hadn't done in 24 years, ironically I had done it with the two 'would be' ambushers above.
