Late this afternoon was the first chance I've had to check Orcombe since the cold snap started. Sixteen Golden Plovers were feeding in the top fields with 11 Lapwing, c75 Starlings and c100 Black-headed Gulls. Also noted - 1 Little Egret, 3 Stonechats, 15 Snipe, c25 Skylarks, c10+ Meadow Pipits, 1 Stock Dove, 2 Chiffchaffs, 2 Rock Pipit, 1 Peregrine, 1 Kestrel and the Cirl Bunting.
Yesterday, a flock of 10 Fieldfares flew over Belle Vue Road.
