A recent cold spell brought quite a bit of snow which settled on the hills and in the valley, mostly covering everything in white, and remaining (along with ice and slush) for the best part of a week.  This is most likely what prompted a small flock of around ten fieldflares to take an interest in the windfall apples currently being enjoyed by the blackbirds in our garden.

They went almost as fast as they arrived, as the snow was already melting away so no doubt they’ve gone back to their preferred fields and hedgerows nearby. ┬áStill, a rare sighting in our garden and one I was glad to have the good fortune to see.
