Winter's here - official

The geese have arrived, but I saw a true sign that winter's here today - my firsts redwings of the winter.

I had lunch on Wooler common today and had 15-20 redwings in large flock of 40-50 mistle thrush - I reckon that's the biggest mistle thrush flock I've seen in the County. Hopefully we'll be catching a few nice thrushes next time we are ringing at Dru.....

The pressure charts show a huge airflow from the north with strong northerlies on friday...could be good for seawatching?
