A few hours at Far Ings didn't yield much today before an angry sky and a sudden wind brought rain and cut the outing short. This chaffinch which was the only bird which hung around long. There were fleeting visits from goldfinch, goldcrest, treecreeper, bluetit and long tailed tits. Plenty of blackbird, robin and wren and and a few redwing The weather remains mild for november meaning birds are not losing much heat or using as much energy, and they don't seem to be having any difficulty finding food yet. Very strange quiet for the time of year.
