Winter thrushes

Brrr. Last Thursday, my first flock of Fieldfares for the autumn flew over the garden – seven chucklers in all.

Winter thrushes are like buses – the following day I saw another Fieldfare during a brief visit to Somerset, and on Saturday I saw my first Redwing in Hampshire. Back in Firle on Sunday, Redwings number 2 and 3 passed through.

Either there’s been a good arrival in the last few days, or I’ve just been outside more. National sightings recorded at Birdtrack suggest the former is true, at least for Fieldfares.

Aside from thrushes, Pied Wagtails peaked at eleven birds around the garden last week, complemented occasionally by the odd Grey.
