Winter Thrushes start to arrive.

Another calm mild morning with wind increasing p.m.
By 0800hrs the first flocks of Redwings were coming over closely followed by Fieldfares all >S.
By mid morning several large flocks had passed but nothing like the rush we,re expecting. Constant contact with HC at Oxenhope found he was getting the same as me along with a few Woodpigeons.
By late morning all was quiet with just 1 flock of around 150 Fieldfare over early afternoon.
With casual observations from work I totalled c 400Fieldfare and c 200 Redwing along with about 60 Woodpigeons.
Dog walking in the dark this evening produced a few Redwing contact calls over Foxhill until the fireworks started and the dogs dragged me home at great speed.
Luckily we,ve had no trick or treaters knocking at the door tonight sending the dogs mad but that could be something to do with the cable ties around the gate latch, miserable, who, me ?
Must remember to cut those off before the postman comes in the morning.
Have a good weekend and watch for those Thrushes..
