I had a little stroll around Lumbutts this afternoon and saw a lovely Sparrowhawk circling over the Church and a Teal on Lee Dam (with mallard and canadas) There was a nice pair of Mistle thrushes and a bird with a very unusual song - thrush like but with a whipper-will whistle to it. It was a fieldfare and there was also a flock of 7-8 of them around - Quite late I thought but with one singing - could it happen ?? It was snowy enough to be the Northlands!
Update - Redwings in Tolson park in Huddersfield today 9th April - what is with our winter thrushes !!
