8am to 2pm. Walk in 5 cm of snow from Beacons Park taking in Priory Grove, Sarnau and Pen y Crug. 50 Brambling and probably more in Priory wood at north end of Beacons park. 1 male Brambling and probably more in with chaffinches totalling 100 at Pytindu, north of Anod Bridge. Also 30 or more Brambling at Coed Gwenffrwd in mixed flock of chaffinches and tits all feeding on bare ground under trees. 11 Stock doves flew west over Pytindu probably joining the 100 or so that flew up in a tight ball from the River Honddu valley. A few Woodpigeons were more scattered. Couldn't see a raptor. Later 6 more were feeding around a pheasant feeder by Pen Y Crug. A snipe flew west over Anod Bridge. 30 siskin were feeding on conifers in Glanhon Ddu, Sarnau and finally a chaffinch sang by Pontwillim next to the B4520

Entry added by: Andrew King on Mon 28th January 19, 09:23pm Sighting location: Dulas valley, Garth. Sighting date: 28/01/19
Cold and bright. Best were Kingfisher, 5 Moorhen, 2 Coot, 6 Wigeon, 12 Teal, 40 Mallard, 3 LGrebe. In the woods 15 Redwing, Siskin and a drumming L-Sp Woodpecker. Even though Gt-Sp Woodpeckers have already been drumming for six weeks, this equals the earliest drumming dates for L-SP matching 2001 and 2006. Gt White Egret & 2 Wigeon on Dderw Pool.

On an early morning walk on Traeth Mawr, Mynydd Illtud, with much of the standing water frozen, I surprised a Brown Hare, which was a surprise for me as well, never had one there before. On the way back 6 Common Snipe and 1Jack Snipe flushed, the Jack from under my feet. The G G Shrike is back outside my house and I'm fairly sure it went to roost in the copse of trees at the bottom of my garden.
