I only just noticed that I got a couple of shots of a Fieldfare whilst I was concentrating on Redwings. Duh...

I have never even heard of a Fieldfare let alone seen one Sheryl. I'm glad you posted this one. Is this a member of the thrush family?

Yes, Joe, it's a fairly large thrush. They breed on the European continent but end up in the UK over the winter months, along with the Redwings. Very welcome visitors :D

Thanks Sheryl. It has a strong resemblance to our Hermit or Wood Thrush. The North American Robin is also a thrush with similar markings. We learn something every day, don't we.

Indeed we do, Joe. That's one thing I love about birds, they're never boring!
