Down at The Scrubs

 Dawn at The Scrubs
Made a rare visit to my local patch this morning. Within seconds I flushed a Snipe from the grassland opposite the prison.
 Not sure if the Major would like this!
After finding a stolen Boris Bike my attention switched to a total of over 150 Fieldfare and 200 Starlings all heading northwest. All that is, apart from around 35 Fieldfare that took a quick pit stop on the grassland to join a few Blackbirds and Goldfinches.
 Male Stonechat
I also found 2 pairs of Stonechats including the bright male pictured above.
A Red Fox 
It was a cold day and to illustrate the point I saw a fox that looked decidely hoary.

Nice morning on the patch. What will the next visit bring?
