I thought these were Mistle Thrushes but I think they are Fieldfares.

There are flocks of Fieldfare in the fields around but close up they do have a look of the Thrush about them.

  1. Feltie – it’s a good name. Haven’t come across it before. Many thanks for helping with this one. 😉 L

  2. Hi, the Scots name you’re looking for is “Feltie” – they are definitely of the Thrush / Blackbird family 🙂
