Fieldfare in a York Garden

Today I got a call from my photo buddy to say that he had a bomb-proof fieldfare feeding on apples in his garden. We’d been on the phone yesterday chatting about fieldfare and, after having seen a few in the area, Ian had put out some apples. While we were actually talking on the phone, a fieldfare landed on the apples at around 4pm and continued to feed on them until 6,30pm. Ian photographed it and, unbelievably, the next day it was still there and defending the apples against all other birds! In just under an hour I was in Ian’s back garden in York and sure enough, the bird was just oblivious to our presence. I spent a great couple of hours photographing this very tame individual and here are a few shots from the session.
