My Saturday Bird this week is the Redwing (Turdus iliacus), a member of the thrush family. It’s not related to the Red-winged Blackbird native to North America.

The Redwing is native to Europe and the Palearctic and is a winter visitor to the U.K. although a few birds stay to breed in the summer. This individual is eating a Holly berry in a garden in Hatherton, Cheshire, England.

Fabulous capture – we thought we saw a few last week but then on closer of inspection of my photos we realised we were in fact looking at Field Fares!

Thanks Becky. I will be posting a Fieldfare one Saturday as I decided to go with a small selection of winter visitors to the U.K. and Canada over the next few weeks.
