For the twitchers
I am no ornithologist so can you help me to identify what I saw this bright sunny morning in my garden.

Smaller than a sparrow about the size of a robin but no red breast. And I don't think it was a juvenile robin either as it wasn't flecked on the breast.

Thought it might be a wren from its tail shape but from internet pictures, it would suggest that it should have lighter breast plumage. This had quite a dark breast.

Possibilities?

Buzzards are big old birds especially when you seen them close up.

Re: For the twitchers
Northern sold, you have a new dog ,sorry I'm probably behind the times . ? Often see buzzards, they will kill,where as a kite doesn't. But a kite will chase a buzzard off it's kill. I had a buzzard try and pick up one of my pigeon decoys last year!

I'm in Thailand for a while and occasionally had a zebra dove that would sit on the balcony and call. On Monday I found it dead under the settee. The big downside of being a cat lover.

British bird song has to be the most beautiful noise in the natural world.

Re: For the twitchers
I love the birdsong at this time of year, seen robins already paired up. Heard a wren singing it's heart out the other day.

Christ! NOOOOOOO!





My reaction is not regarding the idea of me being locked in a cage...

Re: For the twitchers
If they stick you in a cage, you can probably sing to entertain them.

I'm fucked

I don't know about you, but at this point I'm ready to hand over to them.

Not sure.

If crows are engaged in aquaculture, how long before they start planning the take-over?

Re: For the twitchers
Fingers crossed.

Re: For the twitchers
NR: look out for a thank you letter from the crows next time you visit.

And signs that they've spared some amphibians to produce next years' buffet.

There's definitely a whiff of spring in the air. My feral has perked right up, started calling for love. I would let her out more if she could fly but have to watch over what with predators lerking.

You could have Blue Tits! They’re quite common this time of year. I have several in the lower fields
