21/01/2017 at Cwm Gwdi / Held Wood

My winter Tarrell Valley list has climbed by two species to 61 this week after a Tawny Owl near Libanus a few days back and then 2 Snipe which flushed from a spring on the otherwise frozen banks of Cwm Gwdi (these Snipe are actually my 100th species in the valley which is fairly respectable seeing as there is no large open water habitat). Also around Cwm Gwdi were 1 Redpoll, 2 Siskin, 3 Goldfinch, 2 Bullfinch, 2 Goldcrest, 1 Coal Tit, 4 Blue Tit, 6 Robin, 1 Wren, 4 Blackbird, 1 Wood Pigeon, 3 Crow, 1 Magpie and a Raven. A little better at Held Wood with 3 Treecreeper, 3 Nuthatch, 1 GS Woodpecker, 1 Goldcrest, 2 Bulfinch, 4 Coal Tit, 7 LT Tit, 8 Great Tit, 3 Blue Tit, 1 Marsh Tit, 9 Blackbird, 1 Wren, 2 Robin, 7 Jackdaw, 2 Crow and a Buzzard. I've set myself a target of 65 species in the valley this winter so with Andrew's post below in mind I hope those Crossbill are heading my way - anyone fancy flushing some Waxwing over the Usk for me?

18/01/2017 at Mynydd Illtyd / Brecon

WeBs count on Mynydd Illtyd today gave a good count of 77 Snipe, 3 Grey Heron and a Water Rail. Also of note around the count area were 3 Mipit, 1 Reed Bunting and a Grey Wagtail. Down to Brecon afterwards to look for Keith's Chiffchaff's. The Siberian was showing well feeding among the rosehips at the far end of the sewage works lane and a single "common" gave a good comparison. No calls heard. Also 2-3 Mipit and loads of Goldcrests. Finally the 33 Waxwing were feeding on a rowan near the driving test centre before flying off toward the barracks.

15/01/2017 at Glasbury to Hay (vicinity of Upper Sheephouse)

Although Canada Geese regularly fly upriver at Glasbury they seem to have foresaken the usual spot at Fford Fawr in recent months. So set out to track them down: Found 160 Canadas plus 38 Mute Swan in fields between R Wye and Upper Sheephouse between Glasbury and Hay. No sign of Whooper or Bewick though hedgrows made some difficult to see and probably worth keeping an eye out in case. Man with shotgun heading for the flock fired into the air and all took off but Canadas resettled a couple of fields away with Swans scattering many taking to the river.
