Song thrushes are described in the latest Sussex Bird Report as a “very common but decreasing resident and partial migrant: common passage migrant and winter visitor. Red listed species of high conservation concern.”
There appeared to be a poor autumn passage this year, with the total of just 41 recorded by the Hastings Autumn Migration watch being less than 10% of last years figure.
This one has been visiting our garden recently, probably attracted by falling bits of fat balls which are dropped by our acrobatic squirrel, though here it has to compete with 2 plodding Wood Pigeons, who endlessly patrol the ground below the feeder.
Once I saw it fly up and snatch a piece of fatball in flight.
