The Redwing influx continues

 Good numbers of Redwing and Starlings around our cottage just outside Llanddewi Brefi . Having stripped our  Rowan berries they will now start on the Hawthorn. Rather surprised  there were no other thrushes with the Redwing .

  Re Golden plovers in Aberaeron they appear to favor  roughly the same place every year and unless the sun is on them they are very difficult to see. I would like to know where they go at high water.

The Golden Plovers that winter between Aberaeron and Llansantffraed can be quite mobile.  I remember years ago finding good numbers of them in the fields near Ty Gwyn Pools during a winter inland wader survey, just a short distance from that stretch of coast.
