Finch Farm - Glanwydden Lane
After stomping around Glanwydden Lane for hours this morning, I finally came across a sizable finch flock. The birds are in the overgrown field below the farm about half way along the lane. There are around 250 Chaffinch, at least one Brambling, 5+ reed Buntings, 20+ linnet, 25+ Greenfinches and 15+ Goldfinch. Other birds seen in the valley included 20+ Fieldfares, 50+ Redwing, 8 Bullfinch, 20+ Long tailed Tits and an impressive count of 22 Stock Doves.
What a difference 12 months makes - not a single Woodcock or Snipe.
