Black Throated Thrush ..... at Whipsnade Zoo

Black Throated Thrush.

After giving it some thought and having received lot's of positive comments from regular readers of my blog i have decided to restart posting some of my trips, i am still struggling with the enthusiasm i once had, however i will try to at least post one blog post a month.

Many thanks for the kind comments i have received both on here and twitter.

Feeding very well.

As you can see i paid a visit to Whipsnade Zoo (in early January) and had some great views of the wintering Adult Black Throated Thrush (i had only ever seen 1st winter birds before).

Looking good in a Pig pen !!!

The Black Throated Thrush spent most of it's time feeding on Berries in the nearby tree but on one occasion it landed in the Pig Pen and gave some excellent views.

Superb plumage detail on this bird.

Really enjoyed watching this rare Thrush go about it's business , it's still present at Whipsnade Zoo as i write this (07-02-2020) and well worth a visit if you get the chance.

    1. Hi Bob , it's well worth a visit if you get the chance.

  2. Its sad to say that they are moving towards extinction, just because of decrease in natural habitat.
