The battle is on!

Gráþröstur – Fieldfare – Turdus pilaris

Three to six Fieldfares have resided here this winter, feeding on the apples we put out every day.  They are fierce birds and intent on surviving. They fight for their apples, determined to keep other thrushes away.

Now when the Redwings have arrived they have a hard time keeping the apples for themselves. Famished the Redwings come at them from all sides and the battle is on.
