I rang Anton today to see what was around as I am making my first visit of the year tomorrow with Gerard Murray.
According to Anton passerine numbers are well up with good numbers of Blackbirds (10-20 last week) and 2-3 Fieldfare. 5 Redwing seem to have wintered.One Song Thrush has been present in the garden for about a month. Also 2 Chiffchaff and 2 Reed Bunting present yesterday. He had nine grey geese flying north yesterday and 4-5 Whooper Swans on the east end lake last month.
