Hello folks. This is new to me. I am of a time when kite were rare, egrets never appeared, my garden was teeming with greenfinches, linnets and house sparrows and there was a kestrel every hundred yards. I have been a member of the RSPB for nearly fifty years, I helped to build the first hides at Ynis-Hir, saw the first recorded Caspian Tern in the UK and the bird that gives me the most joy in the world is the swift.
Can someone please tell me where to see fieldfare this winter? It has been so long and I would really appreciate being pointed in the right direction. I am in the West Mids so Worcester way would be good. Waxwing would be spectacular too but maybe that is asking too much.
Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Mandico and a warm welcome to you from all the Staff and Moderators.

It might be an idea to also introduce yourself to the guys and girls in the West Midlands forum, they're a pretty active lot. I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with Fieldfare. Good luck in your quest.

I'm sure you will enjoy it here and I look forward to hearing your news.
