April begins with a Brambling and a Goldie
Last night on Y Frenni it was a sub-zero start to the month. We caught our first ever April Golden Plover.
A couple of hundred Goldies were on the top but only one Woodcock was seen last night.
We also ringed a Skylark - another first for April.
The day had started with some garden ringing and a male Brambling was the first bird in the net. A third April first! Two more unringed Brambling were seen in the garden later so they haven't moved on yet.
