Upping of thrushes

A noticeable increase in winter thrushes over recent days in Firle – in addition to parties flying through, there are now several groups hanging around.

A mixed party of Fieldfares and Redwings has returned to their favourite spot, in paddocks just south of the allotments near The Ram. Yesterday a Sparrowhawk scattered about 30+ into nearby trees.

The hedge down Wick Street near Gibraltar Farm also had a small bunch of Fieldfares as I drove past yesterday – and then returning along the Old Coach Road near dusk last night, a tight pack of about 110 Fieldfares whipped along the hedge towards the Plantation, presumably on their way to roost.
