Small flocks

We usually see large mixed flocks of redwings and fieldfares around Christmas which descend on any berry bushes and strip them. This year we saw only half a dozen redwings, and no fieldfares until this week. Even then only two have been noticed. They were desperately hungry and still manged to strip all our bushes.

Don't look too closely

On Boxing day, with family in Norfolk, we saw this in the garden. It had just caught a blackbird and was too hungry to be spooked by the camera.
