The Fieldfares are back!!

Today is a perfect Autumn day. There is a breeze from the South West; the sky is blue with plenty of scudding white clouds; the air is clear and full of the smells of Autumn; AND the fieldfares and redwings are back!
I had my usual walk down the lane with Tess after lunch and there they were, swooping across the lane from one tree to another, making their tak-tal-tak noise and sussing out where the ripest berries were. At present our hedges are full of hawthorn berries, there are rose hips here and there and still some elderberries and blackberries around. Not for long. Once these chaps get going the branches are soon bare. It is such a joy to see them. They always arrive on or about the same date every year - they are the wild birds of Autumn here in North Yorkshire.

They come to us from Russia. It is amzing to think of some of the places our birds as we like to call them come from....

Thank you for sharing your joy with us.

Best wishes my dear friend,

Annie

I had to look fieldfares up. We don't have them here though we do have other types of thrushes. For us it's the return of the trumpeter swan who overwinters here.

Your walk sounds idyllic. I have happy memories of walking in the British countryside when we were there on holiday and I've just bought the Miss Potter DVD so that I can wallow in the beautiful scenery.

The tree in it's autumn glory is lovely. And the lane looks like a wonderful place to take a nice relaxing walk.

Like Janice I didn't know what the Fieldfares were. Today when we were out driving we saw a flock of pelicans. They pass our way each fall. I took a picture of them, but they were just a little to far away for it to be really good. But posted it anyway.

Thanks for visiting and leaving nice comments. I hope you have a nice week-end.

Am having difficulty getting on to your blog, Annie.
Yes - joy is the right word for what I feel when the fieldfares arrive!

The Weaver of Grass said...

am sure you get the same feeling when the trumpeter swans arrive, Janice - it is the sense of wonder that they have flown so far and made it back to their winter territory.

Thanks for visiting Robyn We don't live so far from Miss Potter country - and the journey there takes about an hour through beautiful scenery.

The Weaver of Grass said...

O wow gramma ann - pelicans - I have never seen one' Thanks for visiting - you have a good weekend too - it is very wet and windy here.

oh I love fieldfares and redwings, we don't seem to get so many fieldfares in Edinburgh, but we do get lots of redwings.

The Weaver of Grass said...

How interesting c.,g.p. that you get redwings more than fieldfares in Edinburgh. I understand from Rob Hume (RSPB) that there are now fieldfares which live peranently in Scotland and nest there. Perhaps they prefer the countryside to the city.

They are lovely birds, especially the red flash of feathers when the redwings take flight. A couple of years ago we had lots of waxwings in the supermarket car park of all places.
