Entry added by: Gareth Rees on Mon 6th November 17, 04:59pm Sighting location: Fan Bwlch Chwyth Quarry, Senni. Sighting date: 06/11/17
A female/juvenile Black Redstart was present at Senni Quarry this afternoon (up to 15:00). A pale (but not white) wing panel suggested a juvenile male to me. Fairly good views eventually but too gloomy to attempt a photograph. Also a juvenile Ring Ouzel on the track up, a single Raven and a Wren. Near Crai res a Woodcock was flushed, a female Kestrel and 75+ Fieldfare

A Kingfisher flew from Usk/Senni confluence, probably taking an overland short-cut towards the rest of the Senni river. A Marsh Tit was at feeders at one of the village petrol stations/cafes. In Brecon, up to 5 Hawfinches showed reasonably well at the site mentioned below between 11 and noon.

10 - 14 Hawfinch within the grove of Hornbeams, but mobile. Plenty of seed there, especially at mid-height, so should hold the birds a while.
