It shows how hard it is out there for the wildlife when the normally shy Fieldfare starts coming into town gardens looking for food. We had about 5 inches of snow on Sunday night, not a lot compared to others I know, but last night the temperature dropped to minus 11 in my garden. It must have been even colder out in the fens! The morning dawned extremely foggy and frosty and with it there were 6 Fieldfare sitting in the back garden attacking the apples that I had put out in the hope of attracting a Waxwing or three. I came upon an idea that Keith at holdingmoments had by using my bird stand as a spike for an apple and also the spikes that I had put on my nest boxes to deter the squirrels and local moggy. The results speak for themselves, although I am still waiting for that Waxwing!

Below is my first attempt at using Windows Movie Maker, what do you think of the results?
