The last three years at Llandegfedd have been rather strange for our Reed Warblers. Last year particularly showed a massive decrease in spring breeding for the Reed Warbler onsite with only 2 pairs present. The year before that however, every single patch of reed, had a pair of RW.
This year I expected the same result as last year but we have quite the opposite! We have a pair of RW's in every bit of reed bed onsite, including a single pair of Sedge Warblers. It was really nice to see the reeds full of song again and it gives me hope for the future.
