Hi all,

I spent this evening watching about 600 Robins come into a roost here in
Wallingford (private property). Got to ID about half of them. Just to remind
folks, February (and March) is prime time for Redwing and Fieldfare in our
region (no accepted CT records for either). This winter may give us a better
chance at these species thanks to rough weather in NW Europe back in
Dec-Jan.

For more info, I wrote up something on my blog:
