Tree sitting

Fine weather on Saturday but pretty average fare for the time of year. Most birds were sitting high up in trees with good numbers of Fieldfare, Starling and a smattering of Redwing up the bridle track. A flock of 100+ Golden Plovers was flushed from the fields of winter wheat to the North and a mother with two juvenile Mute Swans resided in the horse fields.
The Pheasant population have taken to roosting communally in recent weeks but eight Pheasant in a Hawthorn bush does not quite have the same Christmas ring as a Partridge in a Pear tree.
