Remained local in order to get some other jobs done. Little indication things were changing in any major way although a small group of Fieldfare near home were new and soon disappeared. Of late there has been some quite large numbers of Barnacle Geese around locally ( at least 1000 +, and sometimes more ). These are regularly using three distinct areas and, from memory, more usually adopt this pattern a little later.
The wild weather of yesterday appeared to drive everything out of the garden ( do they just sit it out in some low cover? ) but it was back today. I remember an old guy in Florida telling me he rode out a major hurricane once by going deep into the Everglades as that's what all the birds did and you were safer in there than in a built environment. Maybe there's something in it!!!
