Sighting Location

Entry added by: Mark Waldron on Wed 15th November 23, 07:16pm Sighting location: Llandefalle Hill / Llaneglwys Wood. (SO070378) Sighting date: 15/11/23
43 Snipe flushed from a boggy area of Llandefalle Hill and there were still 3 Meadow Pipit in the bracken. A low Red Kite put up 24 Crossbill from the edge of adjoining Ysgwydd Hwch with the same party later spooked by a Sparrowhawk. When settled one of the Crosbill was singing. A calling Willow Tit was in the woodland. At dusk 16,500 winter thrushes came in to roost in a small area by of the wood edge 300m west of Werntoe. Almost an continuous stream of birds all from the east following a line directly over Werntoe. The first 6,000 were mostly Fieldfare, before it became more mixed with Redwing and ending as predominately Redwing. Probably 60% Fieldfare, 40% Redwing in total.
