The Last Berries

February 28, 2021 at 10:17 am










All winter, in a neighbours garden, there has been a Hawthorne with large red berries on. No thrushes have been tempted to eat them until we had the snow and frost the other week. Then, several Fieldfares appeared from nowhere and began to remove the berries and take them to the field nearby where they could finish them off.  Apples were also provided and welcomed by the hungry thrushes. I had a hide in the garden all week and got the photos I was after in perfect winter conditions.                             Gallery photos
