Search feed­ing flocks

Bird Watching (UK) - - October ID Challenge -

In au­tumn into win­ter, there are plenty of stub­ble fields and ploughed fields in our coun­try­side, which pro­vide an ir­re­sistible draw to birds such as larks, pip­its, wag­tails, finches as well as win­ter thrushes and plovers. It is worth scan­ning such fields, care­fully, to see if some­thing less usual is among the feed­ing flocks. This may be a Golden Plover or two among the Lap­wings or per­haps a Bram­bling feed­ing with Chaffinches. Or if you are very lucky, per­haps you will find a rare ‘Lesser’ golden plover (Amer­i­can or Pa­cific) with a flock of Golden Plovers, or a rare bunt­ing with a Yel­lowham­mer flock.
