I'm sure this bird expended more energy trying to defend about two hundred old apples than it managed to gain from eating the one!! Thanks for clicks on recent posts - as always, much appreciated.

Quite the stunner Dave, and what a wonderful show it put on for you, I'm very envious of this one, in a nice way though Smile

Brilliant shot Dave. This is superb and if I had not given it already you would have my award-- but then this shot will get plenty I'm sure.

I used to find the thrush chased the redwing and field fare away like there was some sort of competition going on - either that or they just didnt like one anotherWink

Who couldn't be envious of this image, but as Ade says, in the nicest way possibleWink

Birds to have some strange antics at times - that's the beauty of photographing them - you see things that even twitchers miss and that's how we gain our field-craftTongue
