mistle thrush

It is British bird count day today. Normally, on this auspicious day all the birds in our garden disappear (probably because everyone puts food out for them) so it was surprising to see a pair of mistle thrushes. This is the female, the male perched in a tree and watched over her while she looked for worms. They usually nest early and we should see the young in early Spring. Back to bird counting!
