Hilborough, Norfolk

Following on from yesterdays good numbers of winter Thrushes seen, a visit to some forest walks and heathland again saw plenty of winter Thrushes, this included many Song Thrushes, including 3 together in a Hawthorn on heathland.  Perhaps the recent sightings of what appears to be newly arrived birds is as a result of hard weather movements from Europe.
Both Siskins and Redpolls were seen and heard this morning and at the other end of the size spectrum was 5 overflying Whooper Swans.
