Mistle thrush eating/fighting pink berries

I captured this (to me) hilarious series of photos of a mistle thrush devouring berries off a tree today in the middle of the storm. The shutter speed wasn’t high enough to capture the speed with which he thrashed those berries into submission haha. I’ve never seen a thrush eat berries so viciously. What are the berries, you ask? I do not konw, it is clearly some cultivar ornamental and those make my head hurt, especially in winter when they have no leaves. Some of my brilliant blog followers may know…and will hopefully comment below!
