Goldeneye – 1980s winter

Bucephala clangula – HWYADEN FRONGOCH – Regular visitor. Not recorded in August and September

The BTO winter atlas showed that Goldeneyes were present in both estuarine and fresh water 10km squares during the winters of 1981-82, 1982-82 and 1983-84.

The darker the colour, the higher the relative total count for each 10km square, the darkest blue represents over 27 birds, with up to 47 recorded in SM 91.
