These were hiding out of the wind.

I watched this field for twenty minutes and never saw a bird either entering or leaving the field. I parked up and this lot came marching towards me.

The other day I watched a flock of around 100 pigeons land and walk almost the full length of a 30 acre barley field, not one other bird joined them, then all of a sudden they were up and gone and never returned.

There seems to be a lot of that happening !  In my area it seems the farmers are getting some very good field preparation and the drillings is going very well with very fine soil.  With modern drills there is very little grain etc left on the surface for the pigeons.  So a flock arrives from perching on power lines after they see the tractor activity, scope out if there's anything for them, and then off to the next field etc etc. The crows are a bit more canny and can find a drill line and follow it and dig a bit deeper.
