Was at the Loop again yesterday where I managed to find my first Brambling of the winter that arrived in an area near Johnny Walshes farm.  I have been feeding mixed seeds along a small track (thanks to Precious Pets in Ennis, for supplying this wildbird seed), to encourage birds to stay and fatten up before migrating away from Loop.   A small flock of 70 Chaffinches, House Sparrows, Dunnocks, Great Tits and one Tree Sparrow were making the best of the free supplies.
