He’s pretty spectacular, some of them are, we have a few that must be five or six, as that’s how long they’ve been visiting us, they can become pretty big if allowed to mature.

Woodcock about an hour ago in the car headlights landed on the road. Stopped the car and it just stood there about 5yds in front of car for 30 seconds before it took off.

We have one sulky, scrawny Robin in the garden, no fun at all.
Earlier in the year we had a proper cheeky Robin but I noticed
its top mandible was broken or missing. I made a feeding
platform for it with foodstuff we felt it could manage and it
lasted a fair while but it disappeared never to be seen again.

First goldfinch of the winter on the feeders this morning, we also have a Pavlov’s response wood pigeon who hangs around on the fence and drops down under the feeders when the songbirds arrive to feed.

Our occasional sparrowhawk knocked off another of our robins this morning as the light increased. Two in a couple of weeks. If it had given it another half hour there would have been the choice of six collared doves which I had down as a more decent piece of prey.

Well, here's one you don't see every day...

Not my photo, I should state, right at the outset.

Taken by my mate Ron, who is becoming quite the bird-whisperer.

Sitting in a pond, right beside the A7 in the Scottish borders... last week...

A glossy ibis...
