Gone with the wind

Hazy sunshine, 20º, light SE, a warmer day.

A quick late visit to the hill today turned up zero Wheatear, they had probably moved on as the wind had changed to a more southerly flow assisting them on their way north,  and apart from a Red Kite there was little else there.

2 flocks of winter thrushes flew over from the south and settled in the fields to the north of the hill, 250+ Fieldfare and 20+ Redwing, also 3 Lapwing in the same field.

Other than 3 Corn Bunting and a Chiffchaff singing there was little else around to be heard.

A Sparrowhawk over the garden this morning and a Chiffchaff in song in the meadow.
