Frozen...

By ladynewbury
Did you know...When a group of Fieldfare are in a tree they all tend to face in the same direction, keeping up a constant chatter. When foraging on the ground, the group works its way up wind, each bird pausing every so often to stand erect and gaze around before resuming feeding. When alarmed they fly off down wind and the feeding group reforms elsewhere.
I took this photo in our garden last year, we haven't had them back as yet, probably because we have had so little snow.

I'm always grateful for any V's & C's I receive, and especially for UA's. Thanks for all I received on my 'I wish I could fly' Moorhen chick. pm's sent. Pam
