Räkättirastas, sen esiintyminen Lapissa ja Värriön luonnonpuistossa

Fieldfare (Turdus pilaris) is moderately common thrush in Finnish Lapland. In Varrio Nature Reserve the population is rather stabile, at on average 18 pairs. The autumn migration observations in Varrio refer to curious behaviour. The major migration direction is from south-east to north-west. Thus the migrating fieldfares aim first at north-western or western coast of Norway, before turning to south.
