Fieldfares and Redwings were also evident for the first time this year on the East Malling Research site this afternoon. I counted 10 and 2 respectively, which based on my past records, actually means there's probably 100x more of each on the site as a whole!

Monday 22nd October
Another cold, frosty morning brought in the first Fieldfares of the winter onto the Barming patch. They 'chack-chacked' from the top of the trees bordering the Parish Fields before an ungainly Grey Heron scared them off by trying the near impossible manouvre of landing on next door's Leylandii hedge!
