Resident Fieldfare

It has been very cold and also heavy snow here in Oxfordshire (although not as heavy as some parts of the country http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-43251824)
So this is a difficult time for wildlife and some birds and animals are driven into our gardens looking for warmth, shelter and food. 
And we now have a single resident fieldfare in ours, probably attracted by the supply of apples we have put out for the birds and is now chasing off the resident blackbirds.

Like most thrushes they are in decline and is globally threatened https://www.rspb.org.uk/birds-and-wildlife/wildlife-guides/bird-a-z/fieldfare .
