Gwaun Valley - Cuckoo

 Saturday -- A walk of the Gwaun Valley produced dozens of Willow Warbler, several Chiffchaff, a few Whitethroat and a couple of Blackcap. A Cuckoo was calling as we left.
Back home in Lochvane an unusual sight was a smart male Siskin, rapidly seen off by our two nesting pairs of Goldfinch. As dusk fell a Barn Owl quartered the field, and later it was calling from the direction of Brawdy.
