Just a quick post
What a difference a day makes, in the words of Randy Crawford (and various others!), mind you the whole week has been fairly changeable. The light didn't get much above gloomy this morning but one of the first birds that went whizzing through, possibly wind assisted, was a male Kestrel. Which so far has been seen about the same amount of times as Peregrine this year. After a good selection of finches yesterday, Bullfinch, Linnet and Chaffinch were the only ones noted today. A Grey Heron was at the lake and a couple of Treecreepers called from around it. Finally, a few Fieldfares and Redwings looked like they were heading out to a nearby orchard, maybe 30-40 in all.
