Entry added by: John Harper on Sun 3rd November 19, 09:13pm Sighting location: Llangorse Lake - South Shore. Sighting date: 03/11/19
I watched the Starlings with Peter for a time and reckon it was the largest number I have seen at Llangorse Lake in many years, if not ever. A guess at numbers would be 100 000. They initially seemed to collect to the left of the hide, then moved in large groups along the reeds eastwards (how far ?). When I was walking back to the car park I heard enormous numbers, over the reeds, moving back westwards along the shore but not visible from the pastures.

Just to add to Peter's starling sightings about 10000 flew NW over my house at 7.15 this morning

Starlings at Llangorse. An outstanding number of birds arriving in the reed beds either side of the birdhide tonight from 4pm to 5pm. I am useless at estimating numbers but it could easily have been a 1/4 million. My intention was to photograph aerial displays but instead they flew in low across the lake straight into the reeds. The noise was very impressive and despite a lack of snaps, I was overawed by this nature spectacular.

Flock of lapwing 30/35, presumably the same flock as seen on 12/10/19 north of Lower Pontwillim Farm. First seen today in there characteristic deep and slow twisting flight pattern and then landing in distant fields further north. Also loads of thrushes, starlings and woodpigeons flying about north of house this morning where I have good views towards Llandew and Llandefaelog.

Small flock of Jays (10-12) arrived overnight with the 'warm' weather ?possibly part of the E European influx? Currently stripping acorns. Also small flocks of Redwing increading over last week. 2 Marsh Tits today amongst the usual mixed Tit throng.

Big arrival of diving duck in the last few days - now 325 Tufteds, 47 Goldeneye and 3m Pochard present, and that was with the N shore pretty much obscured in mist/drizzle today.

100+ Redwing around and in my garden this morning and one or two Fieldfare with them - probably came in overnight. In addition good numbers of migrant Blackbirds also in my garden today. Surprisingly 40 Waxwings seen near Carmarthen yesterday, so worth keeping an eye on ornamental berries at the moment - you never know.! I wonder if Lanius will come back to my garden this winter, I live in hope.

Entry added by: Alan Salter on Tue 29th October 19, 02:15pm Sighting location: Y Byddwn, Groesffordd. Sighting date: 29/10/19
600 redwings and fieldfares in several flocks between 10 and 100 flew NE over reserve this morning between 7.45 and 8.15. Many of probably the same birds were seen later flying in all directions so assumed feeding nearby.
