Times are hard

This long period of hard weather is making it tough for the birds.We only get Fieldfares in the garden when they're getting desperate and four turned up shortly after I'd restocked the apples on the lawn early this morning and got busy munching them, joining c14 Blackbirds. After they'd boosted their energy, one particularly boldly-marked male began defending one end of the garden against all comers; behaviour I have witnessed before with this species. It is cracking to see these birds in the garden at such close range. Milder weather is coming, so hopefully they will get through.
