Woodpigs, Redwings and a Flycatching Magpie

Magpie hawking insects

A brighter day today after a night of heavy rain which moved away first light.
Woodpigeons were again on the move heading south but these were gone by 0830hrs. The largest flock today was 12 and most of the movement was in twos and threes suggesting the Woodpigeon movement is coming to an end unless we get another wave.
Several Redwings flew over during the day very high and >E but cannot be classed as movers now with so many resident birds about in the area. I carefully checked all the Starling flocks today for stray Waxwings but not to be, surely we,re due for some local birds this year after last years single report of one Thornton bird.
The Magpie in the photo was in Foxhill park midday doing the same as yesterdays Halifax Waxwings and launching itself up at passing insects which seemed a bit unusual.
