The Fieldfare was still present today, still scoffing apples and chasing Blackbirds.

And a better view of the greater coverts:

There does indeed seem to be two old greater coverts on the left wing, seemingly confirming that the bird is a first-winter. Not too unusually, the number of OGCs on each wing is asymmetrical and this bird only seems to show 1 OGC on the right wing. Getting a picture of that has proved to be impossible though since the bird only ever feeds facing left!
