Entry added by: John Lloyd on Sun 12th September 21, 12:59pm Sighting location: East side of Llyn Brianne. Sighting date: 12/09/21
The Webs survey of Llyn Brianne drew a blank but on the eastern (Brecs) side of the reservoir there were the following: 50 Mistle Thrush and 500 Meadow Pipits on Trawsnant: in the conifer forest between Carreg Clochdu and Fannog, a mixed finch flock of 30 Linnet, 20 Lesser Redpoll and 30 Goldfinch. 10 Siskin separately. 1 Blackcap was also present and seemed a bit out of place. But what has set the birdtrack page to red is a flock of 6 Ring Ouzel on a Rowan bush.
