After contracting the winter vomiting virus on sunday night, xmas was a dismal affair! More important though, I couldn't get out to do any birding until today, and that was curtailed half-way round! I did find that FIELDFARE numbers were down on recent weeks, and REDWING had increased slightly, preferring to feed on lawns, and in the college grounds - the hedgerow berries must now be running low! Now the frost has retreated, the Lapwing flocks move back to where they came, taking the chance of finding another golden plover with them. With just 5 days left in the year I hope to be out during them all, trying to get the final 2 species needed for the big 100 total!!
