Emberiza schoeniclus – Resident, scarce.
A few on the Cleddy, beneath Stone Hall, where we have found the nest. Also to be met with on the furze on bogs. We one day shot a very pretty fawn-coloured variety on Brimaston Mountain. Mr. Dix thought this species “by no means common,” adding, “a few are seen by the rivers in suitable localities.” This is rather a solitary bird, one we never remember to have seen in flocks.
