Vale of St Mary, Abergavenny

Main Sighting: Wood Warbler
Wood Warbler calling in Sessile Oaks, took a while to catch a glimpse because of the leaf cover. Yellow Hammer in ground cover on the hillside feeding, several Willow Warblers and a couple of Blackcaps calling but again difficult to spot in the foliage. Blue Tits attending an (invisible to me) nest, Chaffinch feeding among the branches and a Tree Creeper on one of the trees frequented by the Wood Warbler. Green Woodpecker calling by the car park.
