White-headed Linnet


Walking round Fairfield yesterday afternoon I observed numerous fieldfare in four locations (all just outside the reserve), as well as about 36 linnets in the hawthorn. I wonder whether the white-headed one will be back next year. There was also a mistle thrush (the software keeps changing it to the more exciting missile thrush), a grey heron, and exiting onto Cromwell Road there were 50-60 goldfinch in the trees which took off when a train came through – they headed off to Haverbreaks.
