Redwings over Haytor

Huge movement of Redwings over the Haytor area this morning,at about 8:00 am I counted at least 1000 flying over me in about 10 minutes,mostly in groups of 25-50 all heading north. Flocks were still flying over in lesser numbers an hour later,the total numbers of birds flying over must have been huge as I could see further flocks in the valleys below.

The Golden Plover flock continues to grow,today it was about 150, also quite a few Mistle Thrushes about.
