Have just been dog walking on local playing fields (East Dorset) and saw a large number of birds - est. 70 to 100 - on the ground that were a little too far off to identify with certainty. I think it was thrushes as they were the right size and general colouring and the nearer ones had that quite upright stance that thrushes often display. Some were foraging in the way that blackbirds and thrushes do when worm hunting. I'm guessing redwings or a mixed thrush flock but they were too far away to see the colouring. There was a noticeable paler underwing on the ones that took off. I have never seen that many thrushes in one go so I'm wondering if it could be anything else.
