Mistle & Song Thrush

We are lucky to have both breeding Mistle And Song Thrush nearby and they are both garden visitors. Song Thrushes generally disappear from the garden on the winter and the first we know they've returned is the welcome sound of them singing. I estimate we've got around 9-10 pairs around the village and possibly 3 pairs of Mistle Thrushes.

Song Thrushes are seen in the garden during the breeding season on a daily basis but tend to show early morning or evenings when its quieter. Mistle Thrushes are rarer and to have two adult birds looking for worms to feed nearby fledged young was a pleasure for a few days.
