Thanks to Pete Alderson for his info. He seems to be only person that immediately disseminates current information outside of the "inner circle" Keep up the good work Pete!


Mike, I can't speak for everyone but most local birders are good at getting news out either on paid services such as Birdguides/RBA and in the public domain such as Twitter.

All the recent good birds in the area, for example the Temminck's Stint at Conwy last month, had news put out as soon as possible for everyone to twitch if wanted. As it happened only six people turned out for the Temminck's. More of a lack of interest than lack of news dissemination.

Thanks for that Henry, I'm not having a go at you. just saying it as I see it. I did sign up for twitter at one point but to be honest I found it to be absolute rubbish and won't be logging on again - not knocking the people who do enjoy it!
Regards.

8 Firecrests on the Great Orme yesterday, a site record! 6 were along Llys Helig alone. Also a new Yellow-browed Warbler in the garden at the entrance to Llys Helig.

a good variety of migrants this morning, as I looked around the tip of the headland for an hour or so, early on. Best was a Hawfinch, calling as it flew west with Starlings. There was a supporting cast of other birds heading west including a Yellowhammer, a handful of Bramblings amongst a total of 300-400 Chaffinches, 25 or so Siskin and a Redpoll. Other birds noted either on the deck or not moving west included Golden Plover, Snipe, Mistle Thrush, 2 Goldcrests a Chiffchaff and GS Woodpecker. A great day for observing, and hearing, visible migration with practically no wind at all.

1 Firecrest in Happy Valley early evening today.

And very nearly the Orme, c.100 m from Haulfre Gardens - there was a Firecrest in my back garden on Wed(?) 4th Nov. There's never been a better time to find your own in our area. :D

Despite chilly easterly winds early morning there were a few migrants hanging around the headland including Yellow Wagtail, 2 Spotted Flycatchers, 4 Whinchats, 10 Tree Pipits and a couple of pale acredula type Willow Warblers. One of the ringed Choughs also showed well on the path to the limestone pavements.
