A tight flock of 25 thrushes flew over my head along Kirkwynd and headed into Denburn late this afternoon. The rain had just stopped and they had obviously just come in off the sea. I glanced up at them expecting more redwings, but they had orange rather than red underwings – song thrushes. Because we have song thrushes in Crail all year round, it is easy to overlook song thrushes as migrants. But at this time of year, like the blackbirds and robins, most of the song thrushes around are in from Scandinavia for the winter.
