Rare errants @ Cefnllys

Back again following more babysitting in Derby! The day we went , the birds went barmy (typically, as we were off!). We were treated to THREE Bramblings & 2 Yellowhammers- not seen one of latter for YEARS! Very exciting : such lovely birds-now if Pam Llysdinam were still posting with us!!!! Shame!She would doubtless add that they have loads out there! Anyway, thanks to the dramatic changes in farming to sheep monoculture, Cefnllys has lost its Yellowhammers(et al).I include a couple of extras as so unusual._DSC1944_filtered copy

    Pam told me once she still gets the odd 2 or 3 yellowhammers at her feeders, down from 15 or more a few years ago. She’s busy with astrophotograpy now!
