Sightings: Chiffchaff have arrived this week also a Goldcrest singing there are few of these here
this winter unlike past years when two or three were regular. Most residents in song and the kites
and buzzards were soaring in display over the fields to the north and east. Winter thrushes
including Fieldfare have been scarce this winter so six over east today were probably on their way
back to northern Europe.
