We would like to thank all our volunteers for keeping a record of the different bird species seen or heard while on duty at the protection site and the visitor centre. A daily record is taken at each site, a valuable source of data for Glaslyn Wildlife. A Marsh Tit was seen recently at the protection site a new addition to our records.

Photos are Reed Bunting, Wheatear and an old favourite a singing Chaffinch, who stopped singing as soon as he spotted the camera. Typical!

Aran. He's already done one incubation shift this morning before most of us got up. He's also done a bit of repairs on the nest. Shortly, he will be going out to fish for himself and Mrs G. What a star he has turned out to be? It took a while for some of us who've been involved with the project from the beginning to take him to our hearts but he's won us over. He's young and will court other females, of course, but that is natural. He'll place pieces of wood over eggs and trample over them. He'll learn. One look from Mrs G will teach him not to do it again!

It's a year ago now when we reluctantly accepted that 11(98), the male who had bred on the Glaslyn since 2004, was no longer with us. Mrs G took her time to choose the right partner as four different young males courted her on the Glaslyn nest in Spring last year. I'm sure you'll agree, she chose wisely.
