Mistle Thrush

A first for our garden today. No doubt encouraged by the cold!

    We have one of these mooching about in our small back yard in Brighton: One of a crew of different “thrush-sized” birds that we mostly identify as Blackbirds (male, mature, easy to identify -black, yellow bill). The rest? really not sure…
    Also Blue Tits that we see from time to time.

    None of these birds ever come so close to the house usually, as our garden seems to collect other peoples’ cats in handfuls. I’d much rather have the birds…

    Hi Paul, great to see mistle thrush for the first time in our back yard, no doubt brought in by the cold and temptation of apples along with the flock of fieldfare. These seem to everywhere right now. cheers Tony
