With a freshly souped-up computer, Rich Steel comes up with the goods yet again this week (and saves me the trouble of stoating about too much during the season of whatever-it-is-that-floats-your-boat-mas), kindly sending me this lovely selection of shots of Redwing and Fieldfare gorging on cotoneaster berries in North Wales.
Link, as ever, to Rich's website is on the right.
Someone should tell these thrushes that they're not Waxwings.
Wishing everyone who reads the blog and sends in bits of news (keep 'it coming), a splendiferous festive season, and, to borrow a phrase from Marshside's premier Knotweed strangler, hope you all "have a cool yule".
And before I forget, what the hell was all that snow doing coming down tonight? I mean to say, anyone would think it's Christmas...
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
