A few recent sightings

On Friday I was pleased to hear greenfinches in the trees behind
Morrisons- I was litter picking at the time so I could not stop to see
how many there were. I know how much the numbers have fallen so it's
good to know that there are still some around in Aberystwyth. Later on
Friday during a walk in the Rheidol valley I found a pair of nuthatches
busy with making a nest, a grey wagtail, and a pair of goosanders.

On Saturday a walk down the Clettwr in the fierce wind produced a ring
tailed hen harrier flying low over the goose fields. Finally early this
morning a male reed bunting joined the chaffinches in the feeding area
at my house above Llyn Oerfa.
