The Redwings Return

Despite high water levels and the flooding of some paths most of Attenborough Nature Reserve is accessible and the winter migrants are returning – including the redwings and fieldfares. I have yet to see a fieldfare but redwings were not difficult to observe.

I was pleased to get some un-obscured views of this bird feeding on a hawthorn bush. The last image is a little blurred but I have included it as it shows the red under-wing from which it gets its name.
