Quiet and poor weather

Overcast, misty, 3º, no wind.

Have visited Lollingdon hill for the last few days but it’s been pretty dire, rain, snow, wind and cold so not much at all birdwise, the odd Song Thrush and Fieldfare has been about it.
However the meadows to the North West have held good numbers of thrushes with today numbering around one thousand, mostly Fieldfare with around one hundred Redwing and a flock of around one hundred Starling.

Also Great-spotted and Green Woodpecker, and a partially flooded field nearby held sixty eight Black-headed Gull and a Grey Heron. With the weather as it is I doubt I will be seeing any migrants soon!
The garden has still been busy but with less numbers of Blackbird and Chaffinch, both Blackcap still visiting.

A few Daffodils out in the garden but winter still has a grip!
