Cwmynyscoy

Main Sighting:
Party of 10+ Bullfinches feeding on seedheads of Buddleia in Cwmynyscoy quarry. I'sve noticed that in late winter for the last several years there have been good numbers of this species at this site. In January 2003 I saw 20+. I suspect it is the large amount of Buddleia that is attracting them, though I'sve not seen it documented anywhere that this plant is a food source for them.
