    An Osprey from last year, due to lockdown we've not been able to go to see them, only eight miles away, but a bit too far to walk lol

          Not if it keeps getting in my greenhouse it won't, after the peas in there, even under glass !!

            It looks like a sparrow.
            I had a blackbird go into my greenhouse. I have managed to get our pair tame enough that they can be ushered out without any drama. If they get startled by something else they are big enough to smash the glass. They do eat some pests but you pay the price in getting all the mulch thrown all over the place.

              There’s a blackbird mum here that follows our cat around doing a warning cheep continually near him,our cat chats back to her whilst he lays on the grass,then he comes back indoors,birds are so clever. Our cat keeps going out but the same thing happens,they live in the tree a couple of gardens away

                      You have a keen eye Burnie!
                      They near enough look the same to me apart from that line above the eye.

                      Are you able to ID them before you take the photos or do you take piccies then check up afterwards?

                        A bit of both, LBJ's can be tricky to identify as they don't sit still, if they are singing that helps, my specialist subject are the raptors, which I can usually identify over a mile away(I can't see what's under my nose mind).

                          Another very nice picture Burnie. We have something like in our garden every year, probably willow warbler but not sure.

                            I had goldfinches before the leaves came out. The light is not so good once the leaves are out though.
                            The bird feeder is located so that I can watch while sitting in the shed with a cupper.

                              Your attachments haven't worked, did use the green key "upload attachments" to add them?
