Lesser Whitethroat in Cemaes
I had a few birds today. Whilst making a wildlife pond in the garden there was a bit of vis-mig going on, with a few groups of fieldfares, chaffinches, goldfinches, meadow pipits and a Snipe going over.A cracking male Brambling dropped into a tree on the estate but bird of the day was a Lesser Whitethroat in the Valley by the River Wygyr in the blackthorn scrub at the By-pass end of the Valley.I only saw it through the bins but after checking in the books I think it was just the nominate race. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera and I couldn't relocate it later when I went back. Eddie also had one near Llanbedrog today.
