NORWICH: Winter thrushes at Carey's Meadow

3rd April 2013

I was actually woken up this morning by the dawn chorus, one of the sacred seals of spring, and like yesterday there was actually some blue sky visible during the day. I walked down to Carey's Meadow, a nice piece of warbler habitat, to see if there had been any change in the bird life. A pair of Bullfinches called to each other, but still no chiffing or chaffing. As I approached the river I heard the harsh 'chacking' call of a Fieldfare, and saw several along with some Redwings in the riverside trees. There was my answer - it's still winter in the avian kingdom.
