Fly Flatts and Withens Head

Fly Flatts
1 Raven
30+ Red Grouse
(BS's earlier shift produced better than this !) see West Yorkshire Birding.

Withens Head
Well worth a stop towards dusk with a massive flock of Fieldfares - probably a pre-roost gathering before heading down into local woodland.
Counts from photos of the birds on the wires accounted for c380 though there were also birds in the fields so the count is in excess of 400. Just a few Starlings with them.

Distant photos only of the Fieldfare flock.

 Also below, some Fieldfare shots taken locally in December 2019 by JM - thanks John.
