I Got Thrush and You Sinners

Must have been over 300 winter Thrush (Fieldfare) on Carswell Marsh today, circa 40 Snipe, 1 Jay, 3 Buzzard, 7 Long-Tailed Tit, 2 Sparrowhawk, 2 Grey Heron, 200 Starling, 1 Raven and flocks of mixed Gulls on the many floods covering much of the pasture land. Jackdaw, Carrion Crow, Rook and Wood pigeon were everywhere along with a few Stock Dove.
Great opportunity for OOS members to pay homage to that great man Bernard Tucker by turning out last night and attending a really interesting talk by a super speaker Chris du Feu after all it was just up the road and didn't require driving miles and miles on a possibility of merely adding another tick - still I guess some of you are collectors and some of us think wild bird welfare is important believing without the second the first may become greatly diminished.
