winter thrush mark II

A second trot round the winter thrush survey route yielded very different results but still no thrushes actually feeding. It was just above freezing on the day of the walk and had been sub zero in the days preceding and many of the bushes which had berries in October were now stripped of them.

This visit saw:
4 blackbirds in woodland
1 blackbird in a private garden
2 blackbirds in amenity land
1 blackbird in pastoral farmland
2 song thrush in private gardens
2 mistle thrush in woodland
16 starling flying over woodland

Maybe next time there will be some thrushes feeding - or maybe not...
