Alpha garden thrush

Whilst in other gardens the fieldfare Turdus pilarus and redwing Turdus iliacus made up sociable groups feeding on berries and roosting in the trees, in this garden a single fieldfare maintained a private feeding station by chasing off all other birds both from within the garden and from adjoining shed roofs and garden bushes.

Singles of dunnock Prunella modularis and starling Sturnus vulgaris made brief visits and did not receive harassment.
