  12. Dusky thrush draws birdwatchers to Derbyshire

    BBC Local Live

    Nick Brown, from Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, has been talking about the dusky thrush that's exciting birdwatchers in Beeley.

    He said: "Normally migration is in October and finishes in November, so this bird has probably been here for a while.


    "The bird breeds in Siberia and they look like a redwing. It is about the size of a blackbird.

    "It tends to eat berries. Once the berries dry up it'll probably just disappear after a while. It may try to go south as it has this instinct to go south in the autumn."

  13. Your photos: Misty morning at Chatsworth
