Other visitors to the feeders being:- 5 Blue Tits, 2 Great Tits,2 Dunnock, 3 Redpoll, 2 Collard Dove, 3 Blackbird and 1 Robin.
A visit to L/Coed this afternoon led to a good chat with Mark W About sightings of different species and Redwing and Fieldfare specifficly So thanks Mark for info. on fieldfares being in the Llandrinio area, will try to visit area tomorrow. Information like this and the posting of sightings, really shows the benifit of the blog.
Did anyone read the Shropshire Star this evening, and the report of Waxwing sightings in shropshire with one being seen in a garden in Shifnal. The report also went on to say that the RSPB Said that there were only 100 Waxwings in the country. I don't know whether the RSPB have been miss quoted, If not i feel quite lucky as i've seen 92 of them. Two flocks visited Burgess Croft, 64 in the first flock and 28 four days later.
Has anyone seen the other 8 ?
