The Stormcock

It is several decades since I had the pleasure of filming Mistle Thrushes as they fed their young. The old English name for the cock Mistle Thrush is Stormcock because of its habit of singing at the height of a storm. He is the largest song-bird in Britain and regularly nests in our gardens and parks. Worms are the favourite food for their young but they are also partial to leatherjackets as can be seen in some of this weeks gallery photos. click here
