the redwings finally arrive

Thu, Oct 12, 2006

The redwings were overdue this year and we were wondering what had happened to them. They normally descend on the rowan tree and eat it clean of berries. We were watching autumnwatch on the telly and it was suggested this year’s delayed redwings were waiting for an east wind to help them over from Scandinavia. Sure enough, we’ve just had a couple of days of strong south easterly winds and this morning they turned up!
