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. Click to enlarge the pictures.Please see also http://www.peterlovetttalks.co.uk/page19.html for details of my latest talk: "The evolution of a formal garden to a nature reserve."
More than two hours later at 10.42hr, the sun is brighter, the woodpecker is gone and the fieldfare is still tucking in.

A small flock of redwings and a Fieldfare in my Cuckfield garden this afternoon in West Sussex, UK

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
