Thrushes at dusk- 6.46pm

A watercolour sketch in my sketchbook. As I sketched thrushes were beginning to set off on their night migration. Small groups of Redwings headed south west into the peachy sky. Blackbirds and Song Thrushes too left their daytime cover and flew high up, orientating themselves before flying in the same direction as the Redwings as darkness approached. I would love to know where they will land in the morning. Recent days with easterly winds have brought a whole host of migrants to the east coast.
