An Oozlum Bird
I don't recall seeing geese migrate at this time of the year before ? sorry about the poor picture they was at distance and I only had my phone they was heading west from my location. @zenj I see sparrow hawks quite often round here one was in the road the other day with a blackbird, I don't like to see it but its nature a very agile bird in flight.
@Kandy Kandy's post from the old thread of "What's Buzzing or Flying Near You" "Happy New Year everyone at GC My little friend (Goldcrest)returned this morning after a few days absence so managed to get a couple of half decent shots through the lounge window,but he won’t keep still"
A pair of Pintails, lovely to see these in the Winter.
You could have included the pictures A
@Kandy I will sort it out for you , Lovely bird and pictures thanks for sharing ive only ever seen one. Happy New Year everyone at GC My little friend (Goldcrest)returned this morning after a few days absence so managed to get a couple of half decent shots through the lounge window,but he won’t keep still
Morning all Not a good photo but is this a Dunnock please?
If it is commonly seen in the garden it probably is but it also has the appearance a Tree Sparrow (almost looks like a chestnut head) and a female Reed Bunting (heavy streaking on the back and light underneath and a whitish collar) it's hard to tell from the pic. Dunnocks are grey underneath and have salmon pink legs. @Kandy Dunnock or...?
One of our boys is back. I hope the other boys and all their girlfriends return as well. We haven't seen them all summer.
@strongylodon I didn’t answer yesterday as I thought of Dunnock then thought perhaps a Reedbunting of some sorts but it is difficult due to it hiding behind that plant material so I am still not sure what it is
Thanks for your thoughts on this I haven't seen it since but when you zoom in on the photoes its legs are pinkish which made me think Dunnock but not positive I will keep a lookout to see if it returns .
If you are near a river or reedy areas it could be a Reed Bunting as they occasionally come to gardens in cold weather (as I have had just once). It is too well hidden for a positive ID.
They're all up here @shiney, do you want me to send them back?
@Sheal Have you got all of them up there with you?
