Berry Christmas

I’m still spending time watching the birds strip the berries from the trees and over the last couple of days the Fieldfares have arrived to stuff themselves. Although there’s been a lot of redwings around the fieldfares were absent and these two birds commonly flock together during the winter months. Its interesting to watch how the trees get stripped from the top down and three of them are now totally bare of berries. The smallest tree in the street is still covered and the birds seem to be leaving this to last as they will be more exposed on this one. There are a number of song thrushes about and they get very territorial over particular trees spending as much time nosily chasing away other birds as they do eating. Another week or so and the berry bonanza will be over.
