Last couple of days have been on and off regarding the weather but lucky for me, today was beautiful and so happened to also be my birthday so I spent it with my partner in crime at the scenic Yat Rock observing the Peregrines and Goshawks: An unbeatable location for observing raptors in flight. We stopped off at Magor Marsh in Newport before going for some food and by then, the sun had gone but a single ringed Grasshopper warbler showed briefly before heading off south. I only wished at that point that I had my new recording gear because it was singing so close to me!
