A solitary Fieldfare discovered fallen apples this afternoon.

A lone, Fieldfare in my back garden in Cuckfield, West Sussex, UK.
Spot the Chaffinch.
 It was feasting away and was content to share with a chaffinch in these pictures.
 A male blackbird, though was chased all around to garden when it tried to feed here.  This fieldfare was very aggressive towards it.

A dozen or so Serin (or Siskin) this morning in Cuckfield, West Sussex, UK? ....... it seems not. They are Greenfinches.

Can anyone confirm definitely which species these are?  Greenfinches evidently.  And my thanks to Chris Barfield from the Sussex Ornithology Society https://www.sos.org.uk for the correct identification.
