26th November: Redwings spotted

Earlier this week whilst out counting the cattle on the Reserve, several groups of Redwing were seen among the trees near Chare Ends, just before the village on Holy Island. There were around 30 birds in total, flitting between the trees. These birds are distinctive, similar to Fieldfares but with a bright orange-red flash under the wing. You may spot groups of these beautiful birds while visiting the Reserve.
