Thanks everyone for the information on this blog about the waxwings at Coleg Powys in Newtown I had great views of them today feeding on the rowan and hawthorn berries in the good company of Tony Cross and Gareth Morgan and not a badger or a kite in sight! Gareth and I counted 70 birds today but apparently there have been as many as a 100. Wow what a bird!
I've just had information from Gwilym Thomas the Dyfi Fisheries river bailiff from Machynlleth stating that he had seen a great grey shrike in the Dyfi valley yesterday between Dyfi Bridge and Dolgelynen farm it was chasing other birds so it looks like another birding day for me tomorrow! Who cares about this Arctic chill with all these 'brill' birds around our patch! If you want to take a look for this bird I would suggest driving on the Aberdyfi road from the Dyfi bridge or park in the lay-by on the Aberdyfi road (on the right just past the cottages by the bridge) and walk along the riverbank towards Dolgelynen farm. If you locate this bird then please put an entry on here.
