A fieldfare tucking into the rosehips in Michael Thorley's East Mersea garden near Meeting Lane. Michael spent time in the warm indoors photographing these two visitors in his garden, pictured below

The fieldfare was stealing the rosehips that Michael has reserved for waxwings just in case any make a return visit to this bush like a small flock did a few years ago!
Most of the big fieldfare flocks have moved on now, leaving just a few individuals about.

The fieldfare making the most of the berries on the ground.

A female green woodpecker hopped about on Michael's lawn.

Getting the beak of the green woodpecker deep down in the lawn looking for insects.
