Today I cycled the length of the Gwyddon valley, to do some birding on the moors to the north-east. I picked up a singing Wood Warbler on the way, as well as good views of singing Garden Warbler, Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff and Blackcap.
At the end of the valley, I came across a bird that I didn’s recognise at all. I guessed that it was a species of Pheasant, and having done a bit of research, it would appear to be a female Reeve’s Pheasant, which has presumably been released for shooting or escaped.
On the moors, Tree Pipit were in abundance, with a few Stonechat around too. Eventually, after a bit of a climb, a singing male Whinchat was found, though it was a bit distant.
