Over the past few days there have been a few birds that are a little out of the ordinary. Not rare, just not that frequent. Last Sunday a male Bullfinch flew high south along the Nene and a Chiffchaff was in the garden, on Tuesday a Tree Sparrow flew over the house calling (and it took me a few minutes to register that call I hear so rarely these days) and this morning the first Fieldfares and Redpoll of the autumn flew over.
So I nipped up Greenhill this morning to see what was about and came across a couple of Nuthatches slightly out of place around the horse paddocks. Otherwise just some Woodpigeons on the move and a few more winter thrushes.
