    Redwing and Fieldfare being reported over weekend around here (along with a singing chiffchaff). Keep ‘em peeled!

    Yes there is quite a few around up there. They are free roaming though not feral. Some are branded so presumably owned by someone. Quite docile, and inquisitive at times. Also partial to apple cores.

    Fantastic! I've heard of many accounts of Kites in the Peak District but not seen any yet. I'd love to see a Goshawk.

    I've heard about Goshawks over near Strines Res. some years ago, but never seen one. I've seen the odd Kite over on our side Mark, most recently Rushup Edge area.
