Crossbills at last. It’s been one of those birds I’ve never seen you know how it is, “if you had been here five minutes earlier they were feeding just there” or “there they go behind the trees your just to late”. Today was nearly the same story I had gone to the loo (to much coffee) at Pennyghael when Brian spotted the crossbills in the trees close by. As I came out Jacqui was shouting crossbills, crossbills and pointing upwards. At last I had close views of this lovely bird, it was well worth the wait. So next time your passing Pennyghael Stores pop in for a coffee you never know what may show up. mike.
