Having commented in a recent post that I hadn't seen any Fieldfares or Redwings this winter, I saw whole flocks of Fieldfares in Nottinghamshire and smaller flocks in Hertfordshire – but still this is much more than the few individual birds I saw last year picking at the berries (the shoddy photo above is from last year). They were also quite noisy as they wheeled about from treetop to treetop, with a fairly distinctive cry and shape in the air. Perhaps their shape in flight isn't any different to most thrushes, but I seldom see those in small flocks behaving like this.
