I too was struggling to see a Powis thread.....and looking at the participation on all the other areas I am asking...are their ANY birders in Wales.....

I think I am spoilt as I have Upton Warren as my local patch and the numbers clicking on their thread adds up to more than all the other ones in Britain

Shame as Wales has spectacular birds in equally spectacular settings...had a day trip to Gilfach the other day and could have stayed...forever.

p.s. couldn't put this in relevant thread as non participation banned it.

No, that's not correct Keith. It's merely a message pointing out that it's a very old thread and checking that you really want to resurrect it and not start a new thread.

There's a tick box if you want to reply.

Hello Keith:

What Delia said. The memo at the end of threads isn't a barrier to posting, just a way to make posters aware of the age of the thread. Sometimes it's better start a new thread than rehash old material. (Although I don't think this should apply everywhere - not to "patch" threads, for example).

Keith
We were in Wales on vacation one spring, years ago, and had a very similar experience at Gilfach. Couldn't get over how beautiful the countryside is around there. Plentiful Pied Flycatchers and Redstarts didn't hurt, either!

(In fact, I wonder about the wisdom of giving away the secret....)

Peter

[Edit: I now see that "the secret" is well and truly "blown" in an earlier thread.]
