Fieldfares Descend!

Half the flock of Fieldfares
Finally saw my first fieldfares today as a flock of about 20-25 landed in the trees surrounding our garden. Only had time to catch a few snaps out of the window before they moved further down the street, probably in search of the last few berries and apples! It was a real treat to see them - I heard their peculiar calls before I actually saw them. 

Also seen about was...

Song Thrush
In the 10 minutes or so after the fieldfares: dunnocks, blackbirds, starlings, goldfinches, greenfinches, chaffinches, robin and coal tits.
