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….. 🙂
A large flock of 3000+ Woodpigeons were seen flying east over the village today at 13:45.
A female Scaup flew into roost on the Brecknock side of Dolymynach reservoir yesterday evening.
GSWoody regular and Nutties -on lake only 7 Goosanders today after the TWITS yesterday decided to have a firework display in the middle of the day and scared most of the stuff off!!! Half wits or what? They couldn’t even SEE the damn rockets!!! Still 2 Grebes and 1 Corm.
Ring Ouzel still showing in Caban quarry this am.
Also 6 Bullfinches and Song Thrush.
Desperately trying to catch up : these pics fromWeds.Too much to pop on! Cormorant unscrewing its head; male Goosander moulting out ; fem in full plumes and male likewise just shouting to me : “Can’t hear you Kev!”.
