Blackbirds are one of Britain’s most familiar and best-loved birds. Belonging to the thrush family, only the male is all black with female and young Blackbirds being brown.
With winter almost upon us, garden birds need our help and we have some energy busting seeds and mixes that will help them thrive during even the coldest of months.
The Fieldfare (Turdus pilaris) is a large, colourful bird and a member of the thrush family (Turdidae). They are very similar in size to a mistle thrush and can easily be recognised from its 'thrush' shape and its grey crown, nape and rump along with a chestnut-brown back.
As the hours of daylight grow shorter we are seeing a great change in our garden here at Europarc Grimsby.
Winter can be a wonderful season for attracting birds into your garden if you provide the correct conditions that wild birds need to survive.
