Crossbill invasion

Good numbers of Crossbills along the North Wales coast at the moment. Every time I've been up either of the Ormes I've managed to see a few, while I've also seen them over Conwy Morfa, Llanfairfechan and Penrhyn Bay. Usually there have been around 1-7 birds but this morning two flocks totalling 24 birds flew west.

With the arrival of several Two barred Crossbills along the east coast, there is a good chance there are one or two lurking amongst their commoner cousins in a North Wales forest.
