    Pinks

    They've finally arrived.
    First few thousand flew in today and are happily feeding on the marsh tonight.
    About a week later than usual.

    Very good. I s'pose the lateness is down to the mild weather.

    I've given up guessing. Winter of 2009-10 they arrived late and it was one of the worst winters for years.
    i hear people saying the mountain ash are full of berries and just about every other fruiting tree is laden so we should expect a bad winter....others say it's just it was a good spring!

    The grouse keepers yesterday reckond the grouse were about 2 weeks early in packing up.
    Have heard some pinks moving down for last week or 2 but just odd skiens, not big numbers yet

    I think last year was a good berry year too and i predicated a hard winter which never came.
    I used to beleive "the more haws the more snaws" theory that it indicates a hard winter and natures provding for itself
    But the good spring/summer theory also makes sense so god know's

    FWIW? ? ?

    The better the weather at time of flowering the more fruit produced?
