A blog about birds, insects, in fact any kind of wildlife. Mostly around Topsham, Devon. Photos, sketches and illustrations.

Mistle Thrushes are nesting in the cemetery across the road. They're normally fairly unobtrusive, not singing with the loudness of Blackbirds or the persistence of Song Thrushes, but their call, a loud and scolding rattle, is very obvious when they're chasing off Crows or Jackdaws. Now they have young to feed they're visiting the garden for earthworms.
Sometimes approaching almost too close.
The last three photos are all uncropped, just resized - any closer and I'd have needed my macro lens.
