Entry added by: County Recorder on Wed 3rd March 21, 08:11pm Sighting location: Brecon Town (initially). Sighting date: 03/03/21
WANTED - volunteers living in or close to Brecon Town to assist with a local initiative, the BRECON TOWN GREENFINCH SURVEY. Greenfinch has declined by nearly 50% in the UK, possibly more in Wales. We believe though that Brecon's mature gardens, allotments, churchyards, golf course, etc hold a breeding population worth quantifying. Brecon Town has been split into 8 handy survey areas, for which we seek 8 volunteers, up to 3 visits in April - June 2021 should coronavirus restrictions permit. If interested, please email andy[at]breconbirds.wales and await further details. Thank you.

Garden Bird photographing video. I recommend this video for those of us interested in photographing garden birds. Great tips, but ignore the very expensive kit she uses. https://youtu.be/FRKtVU8nUEE

Entry added by: Steve and Sue Wilce on Sat 27th February 21, 04:53pm Sighting location: Cathedine. Sighting date: 27/02/21
Another two Green Woody's today, one in Castle Woods Cathedine and one male which is seen by us regularly probing ant hills in a horse paddock.Very good views of the latter about thirty feet away enabling us to see the facial pattern, albeit through a hedge. However, frustratingly it's on private land where access, knowing the owner/renter, would be virtually impossible.
