More Thrushes in the fog
04/02/2010 Mid day
Thrushes were again in evidence at mid day with 4 Mistle Thrush and 1 Song Thrush in Chapel Lane graveyard. When I returned to work 30mins later they were gone,probably due to the fact that I had my camera at the ready.
Foxhill Park was shrouded with dense fog so no observations could be made up there other than checking the trees which were bare.

Mistle Thrush Movement
Foxhill. Mid day
Mistle Thrushes were on the move this lunch time all making their way west. They were coming over in threes and fours very low, some flying straight over, other settling in the park trees briefly before moving off again. A total of 23 were counted in the brief time I had in the park.
Greenfinch were also evident going in the same direction, approx 14. Perhaps this was just a move in front of the approaching snow storm.
