I was wondering if the attached photos are of a Fieldfare? – not seen one before so not sure if rare / endangered? but so strikingly beautiful I just had to take some phtos and video!. This bird has started to visit several times a day along with the usual Robins, Wagtails, Blackbirds etc as I put down mealworms everyday where I work in Bramshill.
Yes you’re right it is. Lots of people have noticed them in their gardens etc in the last 7-10 days as little flocks had ventured in for food. They love berries and fruit so any that might have remained prior to the snow will have been hoovered up. Thank you for your photo and look out for them next winter!
