Thursday 1st March 2018

The main news for most people in our area today was the arrival of many Fieldfares and a few Redwings into private gardens, presumably birds displaced from the local countryside in search of a food source. In Sawdon a couple of Bramblings visited a private garden and in Thornton-le-Dale there were 4 Hawfinches in the churchyard today.

The 2nd winter Mediterranean Gull was again in Peasholm Park where a Common Snipe flew over and finally this afternoon a group of 5 Waxwings flew over the small park at the northern end of the Sea View estate inland of Cornelian Bay also 2 Snipe, 50+ Fieldfates and a few Redwings were present.
