Mistle Thrush

The Mistle Thrush is a larger thrush than the Song Thrush. It likes to eat invertebrates, berries and seeds. We spotted this one feeding well on worms amongst the ducks at Slimbridge WWT the other day.  Apparently one of its favourite foods is Mistletoe hence its name, good job we left ours in the garden after Christmas - hopefully it might attract a visit.
