Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

A female Wheatear this morning was the first of the Spring and earliest record for the site. The Snipe still present (not counted) but precious little else with no Stonechats seen today. On Friday (13th) Fieldfares were arriving out of the gloom from all directions in small groups (typically 5-10 birds) and gathering in the ash trees close to the control tower. The flock was approaching 100 when i left.
