19th to 21st December

A pale-bellied Brent Goose and a Ringed Plover in Henllwyn were the highlights of what started off as an extremely miserable day on the 19th. A Goldfinch was seen near Ty Pellaf and two Song Thrushes were at either ends of the island. The 20th was a dull but calm day and was again quiet on the bird front: the Brent Goose from yesterday was seen in Henllwyn and 17 Starlings were seen inland. Three Song Thrushes, three Greenfinches and a Goldfinch in the island’s gardens were the most noteworthy arrivals on the 21st . The Brent Goose was again in Henllwyn and a Snipe was seen in the wetlands. Two Sparrowhawks were seen on the 20th, and a Kestrel was seen on the 21st.
