Great pic Bonkers. I ahve been watching the Redwings at work. Trouble is I try and point them out to others but they are so sceptical as they have never heard of them.

I haven't seen any in our garden , but with weather like this they might come in !

6 Jan, 2010

 

Thanks Jacque - you may well get to see some too if this weather continues.

Aye Toto - fancy doubting you of all people .Never heard them must equate to they dont exist then in some peoples eyes.

Thanks Louise .. he he OG well wouldnt want to bore you with all the rejects .

Thanks Gee .

Apparently flocks do visit the west side of the country from Iceland and Greenland so you might get some PG.

Winter visitors change Amy and they may well do last year we had Siskins and Bramblings but none this year.

I'll keep a look out then BB, maybe that'll be another new species for me! :o)

6 Jan, 2010

 

Lovely close up can see the markings, what size are they, they look inbetween a Robin and Blackbird, but not much good at estimating lol

6 Jan, 2010

 

Pp..theyre just slightly smaller than a song thrush.Love their markings !

Will be ready with the Apples!

Bb, i've just seen my first Fieldfare in 3 years, i'm chuffed to bits !!!!!
Do you get them there too, they seem to be around when the Redwings are around.

7 Jan, 2010

 

Thank you for all your lovely comments.

Louise..Lucky you ! Have only seen one Fieldfare in the garden and funnily enough at roughly same time as our visiting Redwing.They usually seen in flocks but think hunger drives them into gardens ! You DO sound excited !!

7 Jan, 2010

 

LOL
It's the little things Bb ...... !

7 Jan, 2010

I saw a few in the hawthorn hedge up the road when I was walking Bonnie this morning. I suppose the cold weather is bringing them in to feed.
