Wildlife Group - Winter Visitors, Thrushes
The wildlife group had outdoor meet-ups for evening owls and a goose watch planned for this part of the year but since it is still inadvisable to meet up in any sizeable groups they have had to cancel. Hopefully only postponed into next year. However, we can still get out into the countryside on our own and keeping eyes and ears open, and cameras ready, look out for some of our winter birds, including some important winter visitors. The group's bird expert, John Michael Wills, has prepared this guide to the sights and sounds of the thrushes around over winter.
