A day up the beautiful Cledan Valley near Carno today, with a very strong westerly just about keeping the rain under control. On the River Cledan at least (2) Dipper were obvious, in the fields a flock of Goldfinch (40+) was my biggest finch flock this autumn, other birds included Long-tailed Tit (14) and a single Stonechat. Flyovers : Thrushes (150+), Fieldfare and (10%) Redwing. In the wooded areas Jay (8), Bullfinch (3), Willow Tit (2) and Goldcrest (2).
