Dusky Thrush still present in Beeley at year end

The Dusky Thrush was again on Pig Lane in Beeley this morning from 08:00 to 09:30 whilst I was present but was still being reported mid-afternoon.
All week it has favoured a hawthorn hedge about half-way along Pig Lane, best viewed from the metal gate just beyond the barn on the right hand side. It is usually seen feeding on the grass below the hawthorns but sits in the hawthorns for periods when it can sometimes be seen feeding on the berries. Occasionally it has flown across the fields and fed with Redwing in neighbouring fields.
