Birds arriving

Just a short note to say what is about at the moment Fieldfares came back about a week ago very large flock feeding on farmland approx 200.Have seen my first Siskin on the feeders today which seem's a bit early plus lots of Goldfinches and Brambling feeding on weed seed's.There is a lot of fungi about and still lots of wasp's,flies and the odd Red Admiral feeding on rotten fruit.
Would be nice to know what is about in other northern area's

Plenty of Fieldfares and

Plenty of Fieldfares and redwing here in Cumbria. Whooper swans have started arriving in some numbers, barnacle geese have been here for a couple of weeks. A few short eared owls have appeared on the coast. Not seen any bramblings yet, but I hear there are a few about.
