Noooo it's not they need precise detail for their records😁
I’ll have to wait til the little bastard comes back, and see if he sits on the house or on the hedge.  This shite is more complicated that I thought.

You didn't say if it was a house sparrow or hedge sparrow which is vital information for the RSPB and the sheet you have to fill in

I will correct this.
A Tree or House sparrow or a Dunnock.

The top picture is actually a Dunnock, often called a Hedge Sparrow which is like calling Brett Pitman thin  Embarrassed

Do you know if we are about to see a migration of a Woodpecker from the East of England to Wiltshire? 😉

Great spotted are common where I am and green woodpeckers are rare

Did you nickname it Jimmy (no not JQ btw)?  Hmmm


‘Twas a green one

Would you say it was kind of 'Forest Green' in hue?

It does have a Foresty hue to it doesn't it? I think I've seen ones with brighter plumage than that though. At times almost verging on luminous green. I do love the colouring on the Bee-Eater though. Spectacular, even for the non bird watcher. It's like it has been on one of those "colour runs" or a paint fight  Smiley

Indeed the most common. We are lucky here to have all 3 types visiting the garden.
The Lesser Spotted Woodpecker clearly being the smallest.
The Green Woodpeckers always on the lawn hoovering up the ants.

I am hoping Woolery sorts his head out and signs, Donahue is a done deal.
Reckon the next forward is more likely to be a loan and not Norwood now that BP has signed.
Just the second keeper and we are about there.

Typical Wellens fashion done the business under the radar with no fuss.
A degree of confidence in the camp ....... unleash the dark horse.

We got both Tawny and Barn.
Unfortunately both my Owl boxes I put up in the Village were taken up my the Jackdaws.

This month the best of them all to hear the Tawny. This years fledglings will be making themselves heard. A wonderful sound.
Not seen a Little Owl for a while. Used to be a pair near here where I fish and talking to the farmer the other day he has not seen them either.
