Winter Thrushes


A large number of Redwing "crowds" were flying onto the reserve today from the South West, I could not tell if they were staying or just flying over.

I have not yet seen any Fieldfare but I look forward to them, especially if we have the numbers similar to last year.

The large flocks of Redwing and Fieldfare are an impressive sight to see. There are good supplies of ripe Hawthorn berries and other kinds of their favourite foods to feed on.
