On Sunday, 10th I went N from E Dorset. From Rte 4 up rte 30 incl Sawyer Needham Rd (Harrier) to 22A , N to 125 and Bridge back along 22a to Rte 4, I tallied 9 RTHA, 1 Kestral (Rte 22a), 12 RLegged HA... 2 lg flocks of SNBU, 3 of Horned Larks, Redpolls, etc. Not much variety at C Bridge beyond large raft of Goldeneye. The Rare Bird alert of a Tree Swallow was a mistake - it was a Tree Sparrow! I couldn't understand at the time why a T Sparrow would have been flagged.
Back in E. Dorset I have hosted flock of 20-30 Evening Grosbeaks for last wk - Hurray! and Bluebirds - 3 this a.m.
