........well not so old. Our lunchtime greeting here at Pencarnan was provided by GRASSHOPPER WARBLER. Time is ticking, but for us, the Gropper is still distinctly audible. The area is a hot-spot for this enigmatic summer visitor. Previous Springs here have always provided wrap-around reeling. Their initial arrival invites competition: the old ears won this year.
And a goodish day for hirundines. SWALLOW numbers were in three figures. SAND MARTINS 30+, HOUSE MARTINS 2, and 7 SANDWICH TERNS passed through Whitesands Bay.
