Fieldfares and extra mice
Brown Moss Nature Reserve, completely frozen over.
On the advice of BBC2's 'Snow Watch' I put on the lawn some apple alongside the sunflower hearts and fat balls, and straight away attracted a fieldfare. I've never ever seen these in the garden before.
Update: blimey, they're aggressive. Chris Packham didn't mention that! This one's strutting round with its tail up, diving furiously at anything that comes near. The blackbirds don't know what's hit them.
