This Fieldfare is very possessive of the apples which I provide for the birds, if the Blackbirds or Song Thrush tried to eat an apple this bird chased them all off.............great to watch............GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Many thanks to Alan Baseley for his User Award for the sedum with fly image.............much appreciated.............

Stupendous and a bird I am not familiar with although I do know that they are plentiful in the countryside.
