    After a few cold days, the reserve witnessed a movement of birds escaping the cold weather further afield. Most obvious was an almost constant westerly passage of small groups of fieldfares moving through at tree height, their presence given away by their distinctive 'chack chack chack' calls. One lucky visitor had a single waxwing over the visitor centre and several mistle thrushes (scarce birds at Titchwell) have been seen too. The fresh marsh is now ice-free again so many of the teal and shoveler have returned to the lagoons. Our monthly wildfowl count tomorrow should tell us how many are about.
