A flock of 100+ Goldfinches flying over Cathedine today, finches will now begin to gather in sometimes quite large flocks, nice to see when it happens. Large numbers of Fieldfares and Redwings will soon be arriving, perhaps as soon as next week as cold winds from the North are forecast for the weekend. There will be smaller numbers of Ring Ouzels coming in also. The Elan Valley in mid wales is a great location to view this spectacle but look around any area which has a good crop of Hawthorn berries.
