Birds of Passage

We had a bit of a shock at the end of the afternoon two days ago

Not one

(the photos are bit blurry!)

In the past we have had wintering groups of Thrushes and Fieldfares and just last month we had a temporary visitor stocking up in the cold.

We thought these birds would have flown north by now

Anyway, this flock was on the move
