Feldefare

Overcast with a few rain showers, 15°, breezy SW.

An unseasonably mild day and a fair bit of heavy rain and high winds over the last few days.

Still very little out on the hill variety wise, good numbers of winter thrushes with c400 Fieldfare, 50+ Redwing also 150+ Starling and 20+ Pied Wagtail.

Apart from a Sparrowhawk very little else of note.

A couple of Coal Tit in the garden.


The Barn Owl reported again today, appears to be flying better but not 100% (per BJW). (There is a suggestion that the owl has a type of corneal guttata which causes vision problems that could explain it's behaviour?)

The name Fieldfare probably derived from the Anglo-Saxon "Feldefare" (Field Traveller)!
