Redwings, Fieldfares and Brass Monkeys!

Fieldfare (Anthony McGeehan)
It is totally brass monkeys out there!

I have just come back from giving a talk to the Luton and South Bedfordshire RSPB Group and I must thank God for arranging for a fast, warm train to be waiting on the platform to shift my quarters back to London in double quick time. The cold weather is obviously having an affect of the birds as I have been noticing the roving Fieldfares and Redwings in particular. I feel bad that I haven't been able to watch any recently but I'm planning to rectify that tomorrow morning when I arise from my warm pit to brave the elements and journey to Wormwood Scrubs.

Fortune favours the brave they say. Let us see.

Yes, cold it is buddy. But spare a thought for us birders who do our birding from a mobilty scooter ... even extra layers make that hard going!
