I think this is a mistle thrush.

Lovely shot - well done!

I saw a dead bird yesterday. Nothing unusual except that this one was well up at the end of a branch on a fruit tree. It was quite big, around buzzard size. The body was lying along the branch with the wings drooping down either side.  I couldn't see the head, which was probably drooping down the far side from me. No idea how it got there, unless it misjudged a stoop and hit the tree, or someone shot it. Just outside a village that's not too likely, though.

Well we saw a Greenfinch on our feeders today. Quite a rarity now  :-\

I've had a few on my feeders - they seem to come in groups (as do the goldfinches), then you don't see any for a few days. Like at the moment.  All sparrows, tits, starlings and robins.  I seem to have fewer visitors so far this year compared to last year - maybe because it's milder an there's more food around?  Had a few long-tailed tits, but they also seem to have moved on.
