Good Reason not to Clear up Fallen Apples

What are they field fare and red wings? It’s good though nice to see. They semt late this year we usually see them on the hawthorn berry’s. Great to see 👍 

Just had a closer look on the original  iPhone footage expanded and it seems that the vast majority are Redwings but also a lot of Fieldfares.  Not sure now about the Mistle Thrushes as it is hard to keep track 

There were also a lot on the hedges feasting off the red Hawthorn berries

Had to chop them up as we had a thuggish fieldfare that kept fighting off the blackbirds from his patch. 


Got one fieldfare now that seems to be the same individual  living under  the hedge for weeks  and it is very shy of humans- but he guards  any apples and defends them from the blackbirds.



As described here so seem its a common behaviour...
