Fun Fact Friday!

This weeks #FactFriday we are introducing the gorgeous redwing (Turdus iliacus)!

These birds are commonly spotted in winter as migrant birds from Northern parts of Europe, although there are around 13 resident pairs in Northern Scotland.

They are the UKs smallest thrush and are identified through their distinctive white stripe above their eye and red-orange flank patches.

They are highly sociable birds, found in flocks of up to 100 birds sometimes! You can spot them in Queen’s Park on the South side of Glasgow

In winter, these birds feed on invertebrates and berries.
