First redwings in the mist and drizzle today.
I've been religiously trekking up over the local stubble fields for the past three weeks, hoping to flush something interesting, but to no avail. A walk up over this morning in mist and rain produced good numbers of meadow pipits though with C100 in a flock close to the house. Despite a diligent look I couldn't make any into RTP (or anything other than mipits). In addition a mixed flock of 200 rooks and Jackdaws were making a noise, 3 skylark, 5 goldfinch and 25 redwing - my first of the autumn.
