Yesterday a strange bird visited the garden; some searching on the internet led me to a bird named fieldfare and belonging to the thrush familiy; it was alone so no family around it though being described as a sociable bird occurring in small and sometimes larger groups; according to RSPB it is also a red status bird. It behaved like a blackbird and looks like it except for the very different plumage; as the blackbird it was not particularly shy, went about with an oblique head listening for evidence of worms and insects; suddenly a cat darted from the nothing but luckily the bird was on alert and I became red status in a different sense and chased the cat form the garden with as much whistles, pots and pans I could muster. I also read the advice the bird is fond of apples. Naturally, thanks for looking.

Well captured.
They migrate from Scandinavia and are indeed flock-feeders. In hard weather they split up to forage.
