Fieldfare - Beeley

Had a look for the Dusky Thrush this afternoon but it hadn't been seen since a brief appearance at 8am this morning on School Lane. Those present first thing also had brief views of a flock of 27 Waxwing in the orchard area.
Still plenty of Blackbirds and Fieldfare feeding on apples in the orchards but very few Redwing around the village. 
The Fieldfare below is a 1st winter with 4 fresh inner greater coverts and the rest duller, paler tipped retained juvenile feathers
