From hills to sea - part 2
Joined JR and Dave this morning for a site visit to see bramblings and tree sparrows and were rewarded with superb views of both species around the feeders. Up to 10 tree sparrows have been seen with as many bramblings and enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of the farm owners. Carried on with JR to Flint castle to look for twite and as the tide came in up to 50 birds were viewed either on the castle itself or surrounding saltmarsh. While were there Kelvin turned up to try and continue with his ringing project on twite but only a Linnet was lured into the net in slightly breezy conditions.
