Apple Attraction . . . Suffolk 16th December 2008.
We have permission to ring at a fabulous old orchard site near Woodbridge where we have in past winters, noted Fieldfare coming down to feast on good numbers of apples which are not harvested but left in situ. On our first attempt at the site, we caught 6 Fieldfare which we were really pleased with (no tapes used here). There were 50 or so noted feeding on fallen apples throughout the day. We have high hopes for a lot more Fieldfare here as the winter progresses (Interestingly there were only 9 Fieldfare ringed in total in Suffolk in 2006).
