Red stands for ripe

      We can really tell autumn is on the way, the hawthorn, dogwood and elderberry bushes are absolutely laden berries. When the fieldfares, redwings, pigeons, blackbirds and many others get in amongst them they won't last long.
      Last year the birds pretty well stripped the hawthorn bush at the back gate in the space of two days, and it wasn't even cold. Talk about saving them for a frosty day and stocking up for the winter.
      In bird world we suppose that the simple calculation about the meal you are eating is that it could be your last meal for a while so you simply fill your boots and more.
      Even if you are barely able to get off the ground after a really good guzzle.
