Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

In a bitingly cold wind with the odd flurry of snow, a return to form for the site at long last with c.150 Golden Plover, c.50 Lapwing and a single Snipe. Thrushes were also to the fore with 50 Fieldfare, 40 Redwing, 2 Mistle Thrushes and at least 8 Blackbirds. Chaffinch numbers by the Cow barn have increased to around 25. 20+ Skylarks.
