Subject: RE: BS: Birdwatching 2009
Well, I'd like to join in but we are in the process of gradually moving house (doing up the farmhouse before we move in) so do I count what I see at both houses?
More seriously, it will be interesting to see what turns up 1000' up in the pennines. I had seen pictures of fieldfares in bird books and it mentioned that it was possible to see flocks of them in winter but I had never seen more that one at a time. Yesterday there were over 80 of them in the next field!
Since 1st Jan we also have had flocks of starlings and black-headed gulls, a black backed gull(a lesser I think but nothing to compare size to), several crows and magpies, a blackbird, a robin and a wren.
