RE: Llanbedr y Cennin


Three Hawfinch here this afternoon.

One Hawfinch heard but not seen at Caerhun Church. Three Red Kites more than made up for it though. 847 Black-headed Gulls of the field by the church and two Pied Wagtails.

 

Then up to Llanbedr-y-Cennin and three Hawfinch were seen flitting between the Yews in the Churchyard.

Driving past today, both here and Caerhun Churches I optimistically in the middle of the day tried for Hawfinch.

No result at either for Hawfinch.

However, here I was treated to an immaculate Male Redstart, with a cast of Greenfinch, Chaffinch, Goldfinch, and Goldcrest plus the common Tits.

Caerhun also provided Little and Great White Egret, many Gulls and Shelduck on the river below the Church, a male Redstart, many Swallows, and hoards (20-30) of Pied Wagtails including some hovering and diving over flies on a grass field; and a single Red Kite.

At least 10 Hawfinches flying between the trees in and around the churchyard including 2 birds seen perched in a tree.

Also:
2 Red Kite . 1 bird circling as I arrived then joined by a 2nd bird.
5 Buzzard
2 Raven

Later whilst driving on the main A470 road to Glan Conwy another Red Kite almost landed on the road in front of me! Awesome close up views.

A 60 minute stop between 12:30 and 1:30pm produced 3 Hawfinches in the trees around the churchyard and a flight of 4 flew over heading in an easterly direction.

Also numerous Redwing feeding in the churchyard trees and a Great Spotted Woodpecker.

Forty minute stop just beyond the church in steady drizzle produced just the one hawfinch around midday. Also in the area one each of Great Spotted Woodpecker and Red Kite.

Quick visit to the Churchyard late lunchtime.

- 1 Coal Tit
- 2 Great Tit
- 1 Nuthatch
- 1 Great Black-backed Gull
- 1 Common Buzzard
- 1 Sparrowhawk
- c100 Lapwing

I could hear Hawfinches calling in the trees behind the church but I didn't see a single one.
Always hit and miss with these timid birds!!!

6 Hawfinch at top of the trees at the back of the church yesterday. Took a few shots but poor quality but well worth a visit.

13.30-14.30
4 Hawfinch (2m & 2f) showing brilliantly. The birds were feeding on the ground and occasionally flying into the lower tree branches in the grassy field with the leaning rusty metal gate in the middle of it - between the row of cottages next to the church and the detached house. The birds were feeding by this leaning gate.

Also:
1 Nuthatch
2 Ravens over
Plenty of Goldcrests, Chaffinches, Blue and Great Tits

Late report from yesterday Mon 25 Jan 2016 11:15

With Tom Jones in quest of a Hawfinch.

Happy to report sighting of a single Hawfinch, on the grass amongst a dozen or so Chaffinches. It was further up the lane from St Peter's, to the left of an uphill entrance road from the left side of the lane.

At last ! - worth braving those very strong winds !

Certainly seems that way Henry. It was the easiest I've ever seen there. We rolled up early afternoon, not usually a good passerine time & within a couple of minutes one flew over, then another and soon after that two more scoped & showing very well up in the tops of trees, simples as they say smile

It's turning in to a relatively good winter for Hawfinches here with up to 27 present.

Popped up to the village today as we were having a relaxing day out in North Wales and managed at least 4 Hawfinches, 2 over us in flight but seen well enough with bins for 100% ID. Two others were in the tree tops up the lane where they always hang out (past the church and before the road heads downhill & slightly right past houses with a parking layby outside them).
