Again MASSIVE Thrush Arrivals into the Country

It has been another storming day for thrush (mainly Redwing) arrivals today (Friday) as you will see from the VisMig site, better even than Wednesday with much of the North Sea and near continent inundated with high movement of birds from Norway etc in some cases detected only by radar. Arrivals that could be seen were mainly from mid morning onwards.

But in some places many have been coming into the Country low as well as high! At one site on the east coast in our region over 9000 were recorded coming in high, overflying but still visible. At another site in the Pennines at least 1700 were seen going over......... Sad I couldent get out!!

Again full details are on Yahoo.
