Redwing

Another one of our Winter visitors from the Scandinavian countries.
The Redwing from the Thrush family is often observed along with flocks of Fieldfare. I normally observe them in ones and twos and only occasionally with Fieldfare.


This is the a Redwing showing off his 'Red' wing, which is more orange than red I think, depending how the light catches it.

  2. Lovely photos of the Redwings. It is a delight seeing them again. The Redwings and Fieldfares are still too high up in the trees for a decent photo with my camera - no doubt we'll get some cold weather in the New Year to bring them down into the garden.
    Happy Christmas!

  3. he's a lovely bird the Redwing Roy; you got great photos of it. (Rather like the 'Black Kite' I've included in my post tonight - which really is brown!)

  4. That is a lovely bird, Roy. I've always loved the thrushes and their spotty, streaky breasts.

  7. Hi Roy,
    I'm just getting caught up with your recent post, all the way back to "More Bullfinch". It looks like you are having a great end of autumn.

  8. I've thoroughly enjoyed your recent photos. We hope we'll see redwings on our holly at some point.

    The bullfinch pics are great as well.

  9. Lovely birds Roy.
    Bit of a bugger to get though at times. They spot me coming a mile away.
