Where have Devons wintering Brambling gone.

On my visit back to Devon over the Xmas period i noticed that Brambling appeared to be in smaller numbers than usual.On my return to Hungary and central Europe numbers appeared to above average and this was confirmed with the discovery of a winter roost in Slovenia containing an incredible 5 million birds ( yes that is correct  5 million !).Hopefully some will visit Devon on their way North in March.
