High up in the woodland, above Caban Coch Reservoir, spring has been very slow. The heavy snows in April have put everything behind and last week the trees were only just beginning to fully bud. The impact on the small birds was evident everywhere, little brown jobs charging about collecting nesting material and squabbling over territories. The Willow Warblers are common here, but to get as close as we did and photograph this beautiful little bird was a rare privilege.
