Redwings galore

On a day where it rained constantly all day (correctly forecast by meteorologists), at 1.55pm, a large flock of c60 Redwing flew up suddenly from the rain sodden and flooded Fallowfields area flying west and then down again. several had been seen earlier feeding near the edges of the pools of water that had formed mainly on the paths of this area. At the same time a Stock Dove that had been feeding in the vicinity had flown up and north- east over the garden.
The garden had hosted a Wren, House Sparrow, Jackdaw, Magpie, 3 Greenfinch (male and 2 females) and 3 Chaffinches (1 male, 2 female today) and a Jay had been seen distantly on Fallowfields.
From Asda all I could see on the river were 2 Great crested Grebes, plus around 30 Herring Gulls and 15 Black- headed Gulls feeding on bread put out by a well wisher (not me!) & again nothing in Hamilton Dock and just 12 Turnstone at Ness Point.
