They seem to have started early today. Small groups (3-8) of mainly YFHEs heading in a NE direction over Page from 7am. And a Scarlet Robin male in my GB site – the first in years. b

All quiet at home but on our dog walk in the fog on Widgiewa Rd (7:45 -8:30) there were constant chip calls overhead and several flocks of birds were seen landing in, or flying from, low tree-tops.  The problem was that they appeared to be flying SW up from the Plain rather than the usual NE towards the Plain!  Were they disoriented by the fog ?
