Look at my new visitor

I couldn't believe my eyes when I looked out of the kitchen window. I don't think I've ever had a fieldfare in my garden before. He stayed for several hours and was quite bossy towards the blackbirds chasing them away from the food that was falling to the ground from the bird table. I wondered what new birds I could possibly see but there was more to come. Have a look in my other albums to see what they are.

Thanks for getting all 4 of my images on PP yesterday. You really are most kind.
Brilliant, I’ve never had one in the garden but I did manage a photo, just once! Fav

Snap, Rosie!! 😀 I'll post mine tomorrow. I'd never seen one before. It was sitting in my apple tree this afternoon. I had to check my RSPB book, as I didn't recognise it. The book says they do come into gardens in severe weather, looking for food. Fav!! 😀

He looks lovely, wonder how big they are in comparison to say the Blackbird!

@happypat About the same size as a blackbird. He’s puffed up in this shot to keep himself warm. They are a member of the thrush family

@carolmw @pamknowler Well ladies - you can add me to the list too! We've had them visiting for the first time here in Suffolk! What a super shot of these unusual garden visitors.

Fabulous. We’ve got them in our garden too for the first time. It’s exciting isn’t it.
