Moving Woodpigs and resident Fieldfares.

A walk in the dark to work this morning because of the cloud and rain which continued most of the morning. By late afternoon thick fog decended but was soon cleared by an increasing westerly wind.
Woodpigeons came over >S in smaller numbers than yesterday and dried up by 0900hrs.
Lunchtime at Foxhill park found several Fieldfares in the trees around the edge of the park and 3 Redwing went over >W. Hundreds of fresh in Starlings were flying around from one garden to another after food and a female Sparrowhawk landed on the front garden wall only to be quickly moved on by Lynda who is getting a bit over protective of her House Sparrows. Up to 20 birds are now roosting in the Ivy along with 2 regular Starlings.
Good news that Waxwings are around the usual feeding grounds at Halifax now, see Calderbirds for details.
