Winter Thrushes

I awoke on Sunday to see a strange bright light in the sky, I vaguely remembered it as being the sun and had to put aside any festive chores to make the most of this rare occurrence. Wiping the dust off the camera, I headed to a holly tree that was laden with berries and was attracting a lot of Redwing. A few good hours were spent getting some nice seasonal shots. A Fieldfare feeding on fallen apples was a bonus on the way home.
