'hammering it!

Well, not exactly! The sudden onset of winter in these parts has at last concentrated some Yellowhammers, Tree Sparrows and finches around the sheep-feeders in the Clun Uplands, just over the border into Shropshire. This morning I thought I'd have a quick go at catching some at the same farm we caught a load at this time last year.  Freezing fog soon put pay to that idea, but not before I'd caught 4 Yellowhammers and a Chaffinch. OK, it isn't a lot but its 4 Yellowhammers more than I've seen in Wales so far this year!!
