Fieldfare and Green woodpecker sharing fallen apples this morning at 08.30hr in Cuckfield, West Sussex, UK
This fielfare is a bully when it comes to chasing off song thrushes and blackbirds but a woodpecker is tolerated it seems.

More than two hours later at 10.42hr, the sun is brighter, the woodpecker is gone and the fieldfare is still tucking in.

https://www.sos.org.uk/ and SOS member Roger Jackson in Balcombe, an adjacent village, for realising that this bird is a Fieldfare https://www.rspb.org.uk/birds-and-wildlife/bird-and-wildlife-guides/bird-a-z/f/fieldfare/

The RSPB says that they rarely visit gardens. It is pleasing then to see them here and not for the first time. The evolution of a formal garden to a nature reserve has been my goal for years. It is now explained in an illustrated talk at http://www.peterlovetttalks.co.uk/page19.html
