The South Brent area has seen a huge movement of Thrushes across the area during today, hopefully the same will have been the same for many parts of Devon.
Dave Pakes gave me a call in the afternoon to say that he was out on the moors above South Brent and was seeing Fieldfare in their 100’s and a small number of Ring Ouzel.
I popped out there and met Dave as he was leaving, as he had said 100’s of Fieldfare, also very good numbers of Redwing and then I spotted my first Ring Ouzel of the season, then six and they just kept coming, I stopped counting once I had gone over 20, I have never seen so many Ring Ouzel concentrated in one place previously.
A single Mistle Thrush and two Song Thrush rounded off that trip.
Apparently a good number of Ring Ouzel have been seen at Berry head today.
While cutting the grass late this afternoon saw good numbers of Redwing coming into roost along the field hedges and trees close to home.
