Through a naturalist’s eyes
"Only a few days elapsed between hearing my last Chiffchaff of the year and seeing my first Redwing. Was I witnessing winter birds arriving hard on the heels of our departing winter visitors? This would make a neat story, but there is a possibility that both birds had nested in Scandinavian forests and become refugees from the boreal winter. If so, would they stay in Britain or head farther south?"
