Call of the Curlew


I'd hardly got of my car when two loudly calling curlew flew overhead from east to west. Garnlydan Reservoir was strangely quiet, previous visits were populated by ubiquitous dog walkers and fishermen, not the case today. A circuit of the reservoir produced a bird list that any self respecting birder could predict. The tally included, at least four territory holding wheatear, two male stonechat, two calling reed bunting, five lapwing, and singles of common sandpiper, snipe and great crested grebe.
