Amongst the Apples

Apologies for the poor quality of images.
I was shooting through a hedge at the time. I had approached this group on one occasion already and having seen me they flew off immediately. So I left the area and returned a short while after.

When I shot these images there were Fieldfare, Redwing, Song Thrush, Blackbird and Starlings feasting on the fallen apples. An orchard is a good place to find the visiting 'Winter Thrush' species at this time of year.

  1. A few years ago I was organised enough to pick some apples and crab apples from the hedgerows around home, store them in the shed, and put them out a few at a time for the birds. I had a nice little group of Redwing outside the window for a few days - till the supply ran out!

    1. They tend to move about and know where all the orchards are John.
