Entry added by: Gareth Rees on Mon 24th December 07, 06:03pm Sighting location: Coed Ty-Mawr, Libanus, SN 97 23 and 97 24. Sighting date: 24th December 2007
Birds recorded (12:00-12:50) included Siskin 23, Bullfinch 4, Crossbill 8, Redpoll 2. By far the best record was a single Willow Tit - the first I have seen here since I started visiting this wood in 2003. Late news from Saturday 22nd Dec. A 2 hour TTV count of Forest Fach Sennybridge (SN92D) gave 26 species. Highlights were a single Woodcock, a flock of 8 Lesser Redpoll and Green Woodpeckers present/calling at 3 separate sites (probably territories). Only 2 birds were present on the semi-frozen unenclosed/top areas (M Pipit and Snipe).
