Anglesey bits and bobs.
I had a well marked Nordic Jackdaw in fields between Llangefni and the A55 on the 2nd Jan, but despite regular visits I've not caught up with it since. There was a Barn Owl on the Cemaes side of Llanfaethlu on the 18th Jan. There have been several Goosanders in Llangefni Dingle this week including an adult and immature male and a female. Yesterday I had a pretty good looking Hooded Crow near Cafnan at Cemlyn with c.30 Carrion Crows, but there did seem to be a bit of dark on the undertail coverts.There was also a Carrion Crow with a bit of Hoodie in it so it had a grey neclace and shawl, and a nice looking halfy-half bird has been at Tyn Llan recently (as per Tony White). Recently at Benllech there's been a male Velet Scoter and a Black throated Diver offshore and the resident Ring necked Parakeet has been seen on and off on Fern Hill estate, Benllech.
