Starlings Galore


Two Buzzard feathers kindly handed in at work by R.M. who picked them up at a regular viewing area near Shelf.

Overnight near gale force W>7 winds eased as the day went on but continuing to blow a cold W>5 throughout  the day.
Another day of staring into empty skies making me wonder if the expected push of Fieldfares is going to keep up this years tradition by failing to show.
Starlings are the birds of the day at present with large flocks around the village and several squadrons of movers heading off  in the usual direction of >NW. A lot of the Starling groups now will be continental or northern birds.
Nearly round to the weekend and at least we get 1 hour more daylight Sunday morning or 1 hour extra in bed if you,re not a early morning birder..
