I didn't flush any decked birds, all those I recorded were flying W or SW at varying heights. One flock, which passed over Newington, probably numbered 300 birds; most of the other groups were between 6 & 20 strong. I have no idea as to the scale of this movement, I might just have caught the tail end of something that has been going on all night?

They are a superb looking bird which, due to their abundance during the winter months,
tend to be ignored/overlooked by birders.
