Thrush in a rush picks a cherry of a berry

SHARE

It is now that the rowan berries are at their sweetest, and hungry birds come to feast. This thrush is a regular in a Geraldine garden and makes the most of the ripening fruit. The thrushes dart in, check for possible contenders, pick and roll the berries down their beaks, swallow, and then fly. About 15 minutes later they come back – for more. Photos: John Keast
