During the last month there has been a return of small birds to the countryside around me. Daily I am drawn to the windows as flocks of birds swoop and dive over the field at the back of my garden. I think they are redwings and /or fieldfares, but they are so quick in the air it is difficult to tell. They fly in flocks, often with starlings, and they roam across the UK’s countryside feeding in fields and hedgerows, arriving in October and November from Russia and Scandinavia.
