WoW! What an absolutely stunning early autumnal morning. The last few days have been really quiet up the Valley, but the over night fog and early sunshine certainly brought a few birds into view. Alan Corbett and I made an early morning start today, moving through at Caban Coch were Blackbirds 20+ and Chaffinch 20+. A surprise find at Claerwen was a Woodcock and Green Woodpecker, flyovers included Cormorant (2) and a Heron, on D y n reservoir, a new arrival was a Little Grebe. Goldeneye now there are 4, Goldeneye are flying through on a daily basis, this morning we had 2, a male and female, by late afternoon 4 were present, 3 females and a male. Other Birds included Sparrowhawk, Bullfinch, Long-tailed Tit, Greenfinch and numerous numbers of Goldcrest. Sadly just a single Redwing was seen on the Hawthorns. Been a good year on record for Kestrels, now recorded in every month (Fingers crossed).




  1. Very nice Tony. I think you had more sun than us although the garden was full of birds.

  2. Really was stunning this morning and a fine selection of birds, great spot with the Woodcock Tony! See you next time.

  3. Blimey! you did well.
