Main sighting: Swift
Finally, 14 swifts over the Monnow in Monmouth today. It’s great to see them back. In a field close to the Eurogarage Services northbound side were three yellow wagtails (same field I’ve seen them in in previous years). Perched on wires here. Also tree pipit, possibly two, singing in felled forestry (with single broadleaves left standing) behind Pen y Clawdd farm. Garden warbler and whitethroat here too, all birds I’ve recorded here in previous years, though tree pipit fewer in number this year (may just be time of day). Redstart singing from trees towards Dingestowe. Hobby rapidly past the house in Mitchel Troy approx a week ago.
