Fieldfare

Today 20 September 2017 the first Fieldfare has been seen in North Wales.

Migrating thrushes need food as they travel South across Britain for the winter.

The plants they rely on are berries, hips and haws. The most useful are Rowan; Hawthorn that has not been hacked off by the contractors; Holly which needs male and female plants to produce flowers and then berries; Berberis if it has been allowed to grow and Roses especially: Dog rose in hedges; Rugosa especially ‘Hansa’ and Moyesii which is a very easy shrub about 5′ h.
