Redwings and my first Fieldfares this season

Woodpigeons were again the first early starters with around 60 >S but small groups. Another week or so and they should be piling over in flocks of  well over the 100.
Bounce back Redwings were showing again but in much smaller numbers than yesterday with around 100 all >E and >NE.
On the way home at lunch time a flock of 15 chacking Fieldfare came over Chapel Lane reasonably high and >SW.
Foxhill Park at midday produced 4 Redwing and a Mistle Thrush >W whilst 2 Pied Wagtails were on the football pitch.
Any chance of evening birding for me has now gone down the spout due to lack of daylight.
No reports of Pinkies today, though Manchester have been getting them over, and no local grapevine or Oxenhope reports.

Good do Bri.
Fieldfare and Redwing on the move.
I failed to see either of them on my trip to Kendal today, thought I would see them in the fields up that way.
