Mistle Thrush 21.1.13 at a very snowy Holme Brook Valley - singing a warning song and minutes later a peregrine falcon appears. Cannot believe it has taken us this long to see a Thrush once one of the most common garden birds in the UK still waiting to see a song thrush.


Song Thrush.The Song Thrush is smaller than either a Mistle Thrush or Blackbird and is less upright when standing.They take a variety of food but earthworms form a very important part of the diet. Towards the end of summer if the ground is too hard to obtain earthworms, they take snails and break the shells by tapping them on stones.The long breeding season lasts from March to August.The song thrush is widespread throughout Europe reaching east to Siberia.

The mystery of the missing mistle thrush: Experts baffled by 'haemorrhaging' population in British gardens

The Mistle Thrush is fast disappearing from the UK's gardens, wildlife experts warned today as they urged people to take part in an annual survey to collect information about bird species. Results from the RSPB's annual Big Garden Birdwatch survey have shown that mistle thrushes are now being seen in fewer than half the number of gardens they were spotted in 10 years ago.
