There was a huge influx of thrushes today. The sky was full of dark specks that turned into redwings. Big flocks over passing over the fields that would normally be starlings turned into blackbirds as they came closer. There were thousands of redwings around Fife Ness and a few ring ouzels reported from Kilminning. The wind is back to a south westerly so the big arrival doesn’t make a lot of sense in terms of the weather, but there is almost no wind over Scandinavia and further south on the continent so perhaps the departure conditions last night were perfect.

One of the many redwings that have been coming through Crail since last Thursday, with a huge passage today
