Tyra's Garden is a small garden on the island of Resarö situated in the inner part of the archipelago near the small town Vaxholm, outside Stockholm. Tyra's Garden is mostly an ornamental vegetable garden, my potager. But flowers are of course an important ingredience, for beauty and pollination. The climate in these parts is quite demanding as the northerly winds can be strong and cold. THIS BLOG 'Tyra's Garden' is not entirely a gardenblog it contains much more. About me: Enthusiastic amateur gardener and photographer from Vaxholm, Sweden. Designed and built my Greenhouse and Potager in Tyra's Garden 2003. Love the outdoor life, gardening and sailing especially. View my profile

Fieldfare - Björktrast, Turdus pilaris

This post "Fieldfare - Björktrast, Turdus pilaris" was originally uploaded by Tyra Hallsénius Lindhe in the blog Tyras Trädgråd/ Tyra's Garden






Every morning I find him there sitting 'en Guard' with his apples. At first he sits on top of his apples and I think he is warming them up. I mean it has been frightfully cold here for the last week and all his food is deep-frozen. The only way he could possibly get some bits and pieces off the apple is to get it warm first. Clever guy! We usually have a lot of blackbirds  Turdus merula here around the bird-tree but not as long as the bossy Fieldfare is there, no one has got a chance then he’s there. 







and now somthing in my native tongue...


Jag hittade det här receptet på Svensk Jakts sida

äta Turdus pilaris...det hade jag ingen aning om att man kunde göra.

Tja det låter inte så dumt  - men då var det ju det där att man måste först fånga en, döda den, plocka den...och det verkar inte vara så hemskt mycket kött på en sådan där lite rackare.

Sallad på björktrast med grillad sparris och rödvinsmörsås

4 personer
4–6 trastar
8 sparris
1 rödlök
2 dl rödvin
50 g smör
sallad och brödkrutonger
salt, peppar
Plocka fåglarna och stek dem i ugnen i 200 grader i sju minuter.
Låt dem svalna under fuktat smörpapper.
Skala och koka sparrisen i 3–5 minuter, kallspola eller lägg den i isvatten.
Hacka rödlöken och stek den i lite smör, häll på rödvin och reducera till hälften återstår.
Vispa in resterande smör lite i taget och smaksätt med salt och peppar.
Skär upp fåglarna, grilla sparrisen och servera med sallad, brödkrutonger och rödvinssås.

Hi, Tyra! I have never heard of a fieldfare before. I've just looked him up in my Birds of North America, and, yep! He's there among the Robin/Thrushes! I will think of him sitting on his apples next time I see a robin in my backyard! Lovely! Thanks for sharing him. :)
