NATURE JOTTINGS. MARCH 9.—The recent inclemency brought very many golden plover to' Creuddyn, in which district the bird is known only as a winter visitor, but its numbers fluctuate considerably in different years. Severity inland induces the birds there tiOI leave for the more hospitable coastwise districts, and! along the whole length of the north coast of Wales they are then seen in their greatest numbers, but they retire Inland again as soon as the weather becomes milder1. Some of them are now in full spring! plumage, while others are partially so; the white throat, breast, and underparts, the characteristic dress of winter, has been replaced by that of black, and running from just over the eyes, down the sides of the neck and reaching to the flanks is a line of white. S,t,rangle,ly enough very few—only four fieldfares came under my notice, though probably the reason that, I did not see others, perhaps flocks, was because of my inability to visit the localities in which, during severity, they arte more or less numerous. Redwings, on the other hand, were here in great force, not only were the meadows full of them, but very many had become sufficiently intrepid to come to the gardens, no matter1 how small, and even to any strip of green which was rid of its co'ating! of snow, and,, offered the possibility from which to obta,in food.
