No. I have no interest in cars. They don't attack my masculinity like they do you, but I have no interest in them.

No interest in putting the top down and feeling the wind blow through your hair?

No interest in cars whatsoever. Purely functional objects.

No mate, we’re as surprised as you obviously are!

Well done!

Not my photo but a similar sight in my garden with around 10 of these delightful creatures feeding on my pyracantha hedge. For a brief moment thought there was a wheatear amongst them, but sadly not. Must be like swallowing small globules of flavoured ice, snow has been falling steadily and settling since half two, adding to the thin layer that we got overnight.

Birds are generally thought to have very poor senses of taste/smell, so maybe they're just swallowing small frozen red globules.


Who'll be naming these, wittily or not, beauties?

Yes, fieldfare. They don't visit my garden very often, almost always when the weather is harsh. The previous time, around 6 years ago there must have been a small flock of around 60 which managed to strip my small pyracantha hedge in less than an hour. It was a great sight! They do seem to like those berries, there's a fair amount of ivy around my garden and I've never seen them eating ivy berries, only pyracantha.

If there were I didn't spot them. Agree it is very likely.
