I caught her trying to get sustenance from the berries in our garden Smile
V2 -an Olive Thrush - such a difficult bird to photograph - very camera shy. Not a good photo but my best one so far Smile
Thanks so much for all who voted and commented on the interesting bullock !
Have a wonderful Sunday !
