Elan yesterday.

Lookout:It’s Winter thrush week! Up the valley next Craig Goch but the banks of Penygarreg-swarming with Fieldfares mainly and a mix of a few Redwings and Mistle thrushes. I’m sure Richard ( Knight) wont mind me mentioning that he also spotted a Ring Ouzel through his scope. It is an impressive sight when a few thousand of these birds start swirling around and chattering incessantly. Good job we have the best berry display for years : it should keep them occupied for a while despite their insatiable appetites!_dsc7375_filtered-copy_filtered

    2 magnificent shots, Kev, just read the Fieldfare is the most colourful of the thrush family – certainly shown here on 2nd one.
