Dusky Thrush

07 December 2016.
First-winter female Dusky Thrush at Beeley, Derbyshire.

A fantastic bird to 'grip back' on after missing the Margate one, this even smarter individual performed well to the crowds. It was great to watch it feeding with Redwings and on its own, and in flight - an educational bird. Even had it to myself at one point when it briefly appeared away from the crowd.

Happy birding,
