Eastern Promise

When the wind blew from the east on the 17th October I was not surprised to see my first Redwings of Winter. What did surprise me the following day was to find a female Brambling feeding in the garden, with a handful of Chaffinches. I have never before had a Brambling in the garden during October so it all augers well for a good Winter to follow , especially as there are already Waxwings in Yorkshire!
