The hawthorns in our back ‘hedge’ are covered in red berries at the moment. I’ve never seen so many.

The berries mean the hawthorns are also covered in blackbirds, and the occasional thrush. I’m pretty sure there was a fieldfare mid-way up one of the trees this morning, but it was impossible to tell for sure as it was obscured by an inconsiderate branch.

There are reports of redwings all over Twitter, but no sign of them here, yet.
