Curlews @ Newbridge

(via Stuart Jones) Today at 11.00am two curlews calling. Passed over Newbridge. It was wonderful – I can remember when they were in the fields near Penpound on the Llandrindod road. Such a shame grass became more valuable than wetland.

Blackcap and jay and others.

First visit of a black cap in our garden yesterday also a jay came to have a look followed by a magpie!!!!! A solitary Brambling still visiting us daily, with lots of goldfinches, chaffinches,male and female bullfinches, and woodpeckers. An unwelcome squirrel under the feeders comes every day. Siskins in abundance with the occasional redpoll. Blackbirds are plentiful full and nest building. A joyful time if the year fir birdwatching.
