I walked along the track to Rye Farm and on to the causeway to Frog’s Hole today.

A pair of Chiffchaffs, double figures of Long Tailed Tits and a singing Song Thrush (the first of the year for me) at the stinky pond, seven Coots on the water to the left of the track, another singing Song Thrush in the trees to the right of the track and my first Fieldfares of the winter past Rye Farm where I disturbed a flock of 37 that flew off chucking.
