Sorry for the late posting but 2 Whooper Swans went over early yesterday afternoon. They were to the south of us, going east and calling all the way before changing direction and heading off NE.
I should have said the Brambling had a Brussels ring rather than that it was from Brussels. Still awaiting a response from Belgium. All still here this morning.
We've never seen this before: 15 of the 17 Stock Doves which came right up to the house; Bramblings in the mid-distance.
Thanks for the info Denise. This winter Whoopers have been at a premium so its good to know they have started moving.
