Fieldfare fest

Overcast, misty, 8°, no appreciable wind and poor visibility.
A brief look around Lollingdon hill today produced somewhere in the region of five hundred thrushes, again mainly Fieldfare but also a hundred plus Redwing and most of the Hawthorn berries are now gone from the hedgerows so I guess they will be moving on shortly.
Eight Blackbird on the north side, a few Chaffinch, two Great Tit and several Blue Tit, a couple of Jay heard nearby but not seen, four Magpie in the hedgerow to the east along with a small flock of ten Long-tailed Tit and five Stock Dove feeding in a nearby field.
