Cefnllys +Elan

Tim Sparrow reported a Green Woodpecker a.m. behind his house which he watched for some time-guess it’s the one I saw some days back ,but good to know it’s still around. Treecreeper with us and the usual finches-Green & Gold inc. plus a single Siskin. Finally looking like smart again. Rouzels dwindled up Elan : possibly one left today, but Fieldfares and Redwings still.

This is my contribution to the thrush theme. Redwing and Song Thrush, Elan Valley.  What stunning birds they are. Ring Ouzels persist, but too many long lenses in the way….. 🙂
