Song Thrush- We were lucky to have what is an increasingly rare sighting of a Song Thrush today– these wonderful songsters are now on the endangered or Red List in the UK, suffering a steep decline, especially on farmland. Our Song Thrush has the largest repertoire of songs of any European Thrush, and is best towards evening leading up to the breeding season. Those singing longest are those late to pair up and those who have lost a mate. While individuals have been known to survive to their early teens, half of all juveniles die in their first year. Conditions: Another still and sunny, warmer tonight than in the day. Temperature: Max 7- Min 9C!
