The Lesser Whitethroat in Wendy's garden in Llechryd for 10 days around new year has been confirmed as a Siberian Lesser Whitethroat C.c. blythi. Many thanks to Professor Martin Collinson who said that the DNA matches multiple birds from Siberia and previous blythi that they have done from Europe.

A Chough was resighted on 14th March that has been breeding on one of our headlands for several years. It was originally ringed in the nest near Cwm Tydu in 2013
When we started the project in 2014 we were the only Reed Bunting RAS and colour ringing project in the UK.
