oxwich sunday

after an abortive morning at Mewslade/Middleton yesterday and a report of a fantastic catch of 9 Yellow Browed Warblers at Oxwich, today's stroll was a no brainer. The wife and I walked across the marsh, down to the river mouth and back to the steep hill through the woods listening out for Tit flocks, diddly squat, total silence. Back at the car, parked at the end of garden lane the sunday paper allowed me 30 mins in the lane where I found a Tit flock consisting of one Great Tit and one Yellow Browed Warbler. Couldn't get a picture sadly nor see if it was ringed in the very brief but good view. Letting you know in case you might feel it's worth a look, seems like they might hang around this habitat if they need to fill up before moving on, if Kenfig is anything to go by.
