Fieldfare starting to show

A cold >N wind today making me think I was probably better off working than stood on an isolated watchpoint taking the full force of the weather. Then I heard of DJSs Hen Harrier past Hunter Hill and Fieldfares piling over Oxenhope and that soon made me change my mind.
3 Fieldfare came out of roost from the trees down Station Rd this a.m. along with 12 Redwing and all moved off >SW.  Otherwise the skies were quiet although there seems to have been a slight fall of Dunnocks with several more about that the norm.
Shelf Moor tonight had 2 Fieldfare in with 6 Mistle Thrush dropping in to roost by the old bacon factory and a flock of 15 Chaffinch came over heading for the golf course, probably again locals going to roost..
Lets hope the invasion of the Fieldfares happens this weekend and the weather is kind enough to let us see it.

Hope you have a good weekend Bri - some raptors will do you fine and with the forecast winds how about some Whoopers and Geese!
