The redwing and fieldfare would suggest it - but the first brambling on the wildlife centre feeding station is confirmation - it is officially winter! This nice male was showing fom 2pm on the feeders:

Aside from this there seems to be a general build up lately of activity around the feeders with a lot of chaffinch present now. Great spotted woodpeckers are also coming back more frequently like this female:

Other than this a pair of pintail were on Watton yesterday, with the kingfishers showing at North Marsh, a grey wagtail on O reservoir wall, and a tawny calling from East Scrub.

Also here are some shots courtesy of Mervin and his fungi walk:
