Redwing Influx.

I felt a quick post was necessary today regarding this mornings visit to Brandon Marsh.
A lot of talk now turns to our winter visitors and watching Autumn Watch on the BBC this Friday there was a lot said in relation to the imminent arrival of Redwing. Indeed I myself went in search of Redwing, Fieldfare, Siskin and Redpoll during Fridays visit and produced a number of Fieldfare and possibly several Redwing in flight.
However, this morning there can be no mistake as a group of us regulars recorded no less than 103 Redwing as several flocks were seen making their way across the reserve. Certainly no doubt then in my mind that these great looking birds have arrived back in force.
