Redwings arriving !

Redwings have been reported in Yorkshire just in small numbers this last week - until today.

Report from first thing this morning of flocks heading >NW over Oxenhope, probably arrivals overnight from across the North Sea. I went out to check the sky over Swales Moor and Ovenden. Sure enough flocks were still in the move and I managed 430+ between 9:00 and 9:30 - all >NW.

Signs of changing seasons with the arrival of winter visitors this week including Redwings and Pink-footed Geese with, hopefully, Whooper Swans, Fieldfare and Bramblings to look out for in the coming weeks.

Still a few Swallows and House Martins about with the changing of the seasons.

Nice to get some good bird movement Dave.
A chilly place to be Swalesmoor.
