Redwing, Northam

It was nice to see a Winter Migrant this morning. A single Redwing was spotted on horse pasture just down from Bloody Corner.

Lots of summer warblers: Chiffchaff, Willow warbler, Blackcap but no swallows, or sand martins. 2 Blackcaps in my garden feeding on Mahonia berries which is about the only fruit available until June Berries come along.
