11th to 12th November

The 11th was a clear and calm day, with a slight increase in the number of thrushes around resulting in 46 Blackbirds, seven Fieldfares, 12 Song Thrushes, seven Redwings and a Mistle Thrush. Six Blackcaps had also arrived, whilst a Brambling joined the finches in the gardens. A Lapwing, Ringed Plover and a Snipe were seen around the Narrows, whilst two Red-throated Divers flew past at sea. 
The 12th was a much quieter day owing to the miserable weather persisting for the whole morning: a female Brambling was seen in Ty-Pellaf garden, three Crossbills, a Siskin and a Lesser Redpoll flew overhead, and a Dunlin and a Knot were in Solfach. In the evening a Barn Owl was seen hunting over the lowlands and a Long-eared Owl hunted around Ty Nesaf.
