Golden Plovers

Today's bitter north wind kept me indoors but I did have the reward of seeing a flock of about eighty golden plovers calling as they circled above the house for some minutes before settling in the field opposite. This is very likely evidence of the cold weather bird movement referred to in my last post. It's very likely that lapwings, fieldfares, redwings and bramblings will make their appearance soon.

  1. With regard to cold weather movement, we had a Hawfinch on our bird table today. Not that rare I know but a first for us.
