Common Rosefinch at Point Lynas

Ken found this singing first year male Common Rosefinch at Point Lynas today. It was between the mini-roundabout where the "main" road ends and c.100m up towards the Point by the cattle grid in the sycamores, and in  the small valley on the right just beyond here. It was quite vocal most of the time.This is the sixth year on the trot we have had a "spring" Rosefinch on North Anglesey.

  1. This bird was actually discovered by Ken's mate Pat - for a change!

    With Aberdaron relatively birdless in recent weeks, I jammed in on it at lunchtime with Eddie & Rhys while exploring the island. Might have to call again if today's avian smorgasbord was anything to go by.

    What a monochrome mocha beauty with a brilliant song :-D
