The Mistle Thrush is fast disappearing from the UK's gardens, wildlife experts warned today as they urged people to take part in an annual survey to collect information about bird species. Results from the RSPB's annual Big Garden Birdwatch survey have shown that mistle thrushes are now being seen in fewer than half the number of gardens they were spotted in 10 years ago.
Mistle Thrush (Turdus viscivorus). They are spread across the UK and are found in woodlands, hedgerows, parklands and gardens, anywhere there is sufficient trees and cover. They can often be seen singing from the top of a tree or other prominent position and also unusually when weather conditions are poor.
