12 Days of Christmas – 2022
Day 3: A Busy Redwing
Loads of redwing thrushes in the Purecamping woods in Winter 20022! 🙂
A common, but welcome winter visitor from the North.
Birdwatch Ireland has them favouring open fields, but our woods seem to be just as attractive.
Flocks of 20 and 30 specimens seen settling down in the early every evening in the canopy.
Keep an eye out for the distinctive red underwing flash along the flank.
Not quite a Christmas robin, not far off either 🙂
