Winter birds

09 Jan 2023
Sometimes absences are more striking than presences. Very few winter visitors here, possibly because climate change makes it unnecessary. At any rate no redwings or fieldfares on the hawthorns, still berried, on the Twin Banks. No lapwing and just one curlew. There was one winner from climate change, though, a Cetti's warbler calling, which stays here all the years now.
