Local Thrushes & Hard Weather Movement around Ashford

As usual it's been a week at work so limited bird sightings from me. However my Dad has been out and about. Monday(6th) was another day of watching the garden, resulting in a flock of 14 Redwing coming to the Cotoneaster bush. One Redwing remained on Tuesday and a Song Thrush visited yesterday and today. There has been no further sign of the Tree Sparrow.

Yesterday (8th) Dad walked the Singleton - Great Chart - Godinton Park triangle where the highlights were a Woodcock, 1 Snipe, Sparrowhawk, 2 Jays, several Redwings, 2 Green and 1 Great Spotted Woodpecker.

Today he visited Eastwell Lake and noted: 4 Common Buzzards, 9 GOOSANDER (5 drakes) - a first for this site, c50 Teal, c40 Tufted Ducks and a similar number of Pochard, 6 Gadwall, 3 Little Grebes, 2 Jays and singles of Green and Great Spotted Woodpecker.
