A Sunday saunter around Usk and surrounds

Bird song at its best today- blackcaps and willow warblers taking the top spot. We had a lovely view of a dipper collecting flies for a brood nesting under a small bridge over a reservoir tributary. Thrilled to see a small flock of crossbills and get a photo. Had a close encounter with a sparrow hawk on the hunt.

Species: willow warbler, crossbill, blackcap, sparrowhawk, raven, blue tit, great tit, dipper, chaffinch, blackbird, thrush, stonechat, red kite,  buzzard, longtailed tit.
