I'd been out looking for Fieldfares and Redwings for three hours but failed to find them. Within 10 mins of getting home this appeared in front of me. I was sitting having a coffee. Grabbed my camera and shot through the double glazing!!

Thanks for votes and comments, much appreciated!!

Have a great day.

Bill

Hi Bob It took it in front of a tree in the garden, plucked it and dragged what was left on the table - then into the wood next to my garden!! Bill
