HOB +Redwing

Frosty morning. Took a tour of the hill this morning in search of Treecreeper and Woodcock. Dipped on both, but found a nice flock of Redwing in the trees on the north side. c.10 Mipits were feeding in empty pasture on the south side.

Fieldfare and Starling were also feeding in the pasture, with the Fieldfare retreating to the trees on being disturbed as usual.

 In the field behind the houses the Highland cattle were feeling the warmth of the sun apparently, and a few farmland birds - Yellowhammer, Chaffinch and Pied Wagtail - were making the most of the disturbed ground around them.
