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.
