Quite a sight!
They come for the Rimsdale Walk berry trees every year, and have been here in small numbers since early December, but I have never seen this many Fieldfare here before.
Estimated number, present at around 1pm, 120 to 130
Moving between the berry trees(50) and the adjacent school playing field (70) and the grass by the Community Hall.

Still 2 male and 2 female bullfinch in the garden every day. They are usually in the tree above the feeders but don't often eat from them although they do feed on the ground on the seeds that the other birds knock out of the feeders, mainly sunflower hearts. Also a grey wagtail on the pond most days.

Recently, I have been checking the renowned Rimsdale Walk berry trees, and this morning the Winter Thrushes had arrived.
Difficult to count as the Cotoneaster still in full leaf plus the birds very flighty. My estimate 4 Fieldfare...7 Redwing.
House Sparrows, Blackbirds, Goldfinch and a female Pied Wagtail also present in that area.

Good but short views of a Buzzard moving east down the Valley. Probably over the edge of the estate,
or the Golf Course as seen from my back garden. Another bird, flying close to it, possibly harassing, appeared to be a Gull.
