Tresinwen (29 Oct 16)

Yellow Browed Warbler - 1

In the garden by the pond this evening.  Been looking for migrants around the garden and Porthsychan all day and only found this at 1730 this evening!

On 9 Oct 1994 I found my first ever Yellow Browed at the top of Porthsychan.  That bird eventually made it into Tresinwen garden.  I have had to wait until now to find one in the garden since buying Tresinwen.  Well worth the wait.

Male Blackcap in the garden as well and Redwings and Fieldfare over this morning.

Jay in Porthsychan, lots of Goldcrest, Chaffinch, Goldfinch around.

Massive flock of Starlings around which are very mobile.  Not yet found anything rare with them but there is a Common Starling with a completely white tail in the flock which gets the pulse racing!
