    Bird on a wire

    Wasn't that the name of a song? The title came to me from somewhere LOL. Another bird we found on that early spring trip up Glen Moy was a Redwing. Some winters I really struggle to find them, but here was this guy sitting right out in the open for us, a tad distant though, so focusing was...

    A winter thrush

    This replaces an earlier version, in which the bird was exposed normally. Apologies to the four people who had taken the trouble to leave comments on the first one. The species isn't obvious in silhouette, but it's a rather distant Redwing, probably the last until next winter. Thank you for...

    In the leaf-strewn rainwater pool on top of our substation, having a bath and taking a moment to watch the world go by. Soon the last few will have left the UK and flown back to their northern breeding territories, where they nest low down in boggy woodland and birch forest. Thank you for your...

    I wasn't going to post this completely accidental shot of a Jay and Redwing (though it might have done for SF). Then a title came to mind. Thank you for your comments, stay safe and well. John

    Every year these birds arrive here in Inner London in good numbers, and for three weeks or so they seem to be everywhere. Then they vanish, off to find habitat they can settle in for the winter, and I'll see none until the same time next year. Quote from The Wildlife Trusts: "Classified in the...

    This was a nice surprise. Redwings are quite uncommon here, the last time I saw them was in the winter of 2005 – 2006, which was also when we had the last big waxwing invasion here. Unfortunately, the bird wasn’t too cooperative, staying behind the twigs, but it was a record shot.

    Testing climate change

    This Redwing was something of a surprise. The few that stay the winter here tend to try their chances further out at the coast where it rarely gets very cold. Here we usually have a cold snap or two that gets down to -20C or even below that, sometimes for a couple of weeks. But this one has...

    Numbers seem to have peaked here: flocks of twenty or more a couple of days ago, just one bird so far today. Thanks for your comments, stay safe and well. John
