Yesterday, (Sunday, 26th December, 2010) I received good news from one of my contacts close to the Powys – Clwyd - Shropshire border of two birds seen regularly for over two weeks. Only very occasional sightings of single birds have been recorded here.
I wonder if these are wandering youngsters or are they first time breeding birds (adults) seeking to establish territory. It is a little early for birds to be on territory but, here is hoping.
I do hope the birds remain as the landowner is very keen to see these magnificent birds in his valley on a more permanent basis!
