Hints of cold weather movement

22nd December 2009 - early frost/snow showers/calm then WNW3
Grounded Migrants
A frenetic feeding flock of 12 Song Thrush and 6 Redwing in the snow free horse paddocks were perhaps refugees from the frost and snow elsewhere in Cumbria.
Wildfowl and Waders
Pintail numbers continue to increase slowly with 48 birds logged, also seen were 102 pale-bellied Brent Geese and 14 Pink-footed Geese. A Greenshank continues to defy the frost.
A flock of 70 Twite were seen but just a single Little Egret was logged.
