Redwings visit Britain each winter from as far away as Russia, Scandinavia and Iceland. They feed on berries, fruits and worms and often visit gardens, especially if we plant bushes with berries and leave fallen apples. Mick Farmer spotted this one in his garden during the snow, and took this great shot through his window.

It has been good to see Hawfinches in the Wyre Forest area. Here are 2 photos caught on a remote camera drinking from a small stream.
