The only birding I've managed this week is walking to and from my car on my way to work, shocking really (Gareth and Dafydd ;-) However I did have my first two local Fieldfares of the winter fly over the house in Cemaes on Monday (19th Oct). Mike Smith had 3 Whooper Swans fly over Cemaes on Wednesday and the Great grey Shrike was showing well again at the usual spot near Prenteg, Porthmadog yesterday (see earlier post). However my highlight this week was a very vocal Brambling "squerking" as it flew over my house this morning. That put a smile on my face.
"I love the sound of Brambling in the morning!", it's better than the smell of napalm anyway ;-)
