Feeding the Song Thrush

The MOTH cleared a small section of garden yesterday with a view to a replant. I have been watching the Song Thrushes in the past weeks as they forage for food on the grass and garden. Usually it is just one bird and its beak is often full of worms as it seeks food for its young.
They are sharp-eyed and very nervous of any movement. In fact they almost have a sixth sense that they are being watched as so often their head tilts and I am spotted from the kitchen window.
This freshly tilled, damp soil was a real treat for the birds and in particular this beauty.

I edged ever so slightly to the right to get a clearer view but my apparently subtle shift was enough to send the Thrush away to safety. Content with one image I left the birds to feed without me adding stress to their life.
They are very beautiful birds.
