A one sided battle between bird and worm.
Some characteristic Fieldfare feeding behaviour, listening for the worms below.
Having been house bound for a couple of days over Christmas it was a joy to wake up to some sun Boxing Day morning and head out with the camera. My original intention was to head to some local woods to gets some photos of woodland birds but while on route I suddenly had a change of plan and decided to head to another site to try and find some Fieldfare. These winter visiting thrushes are a favourite of mine although they are a difficult bird to approach close enough for good photographs. Fortunately the plan came together and I found some and managed to get a few photographs of them foraging areas of short grass for worms.Staring straight down the lens.
