Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

Some minor interest today - pride of place for scarcity value should go to 2 Cormorants heading SW over the airfield this morning but it is difficult to get excited by them! 49 Lapwings, 25 Fieldfare and 20 Redwings.  An increase in Chaffinch to 45 along with 2 Yellowhammers. This is notable as despite breeding locally, they are normally absent during the winter. Circa 3000 Starlings around the airfield.
