Bird on the phone wire

By HobbitDave
Anyone fancy I D on this one please. Think itís a Missle Thrush, but possibly a Fieldfare? They are very similar. They were eyeing up hawthorn berries on a windswept tree nearby.

Thanks so much for the clicks and comments and the very valued awards on my Remembrance Day Holly Blue yesterday. They are all very much valued, appreciated, and encouraging 🐈

We rarely see any thrushes now. Don't know whether it is the fashion for paving and tidying?

Two good captures Dave.
