Winter visitors

Redwings and Fieldfares visit the orchard at Parke

Winter visitors from Scandinavia spend much of their time up on Dartmoor, but are driven down by harsher weather to more sheltered spots.

Even though the apples in the orchard have been harvested to make cider and apple juice, we always leave some for the birds.

It's a good time of year to visit if you'd like to see these lovely thrushes.
