A Cotswold Year - Charting the seasons in the South Cotswolds

Wednesday 22 December 2010


The apples which fell in the autumn have attracted the normally shy Redwings to our garden at last. We have seen and heard them and the Fieldfares around recently. This morning we were delighted to see that there were 6 of these delightful birds feasting alongside the 10 Blackbirds.
Most Redwings live in Northern Europe's forests and only venture west into Britain at this time of year when food is scarce.

  1. Update at least 4 Fieldfares now eating the apples too!
