    Not sure what this chap was I presume he is a juvenile dunnock as he looks far too stripey to be an adult

    Blue tits in the box - a real treat, they are rocketing back and forth carrying these little caterpillars to the plaintive peep peeps inside. tried flight shots but all are naff

    Gutted I didn't get the camera inside wired up before they settled in

    It's a Dunnock.


    It's so cool being able to look at a bird and tell what it is. Nearly disrupted SATs today when I looked out of the window and saw a Swift. So excited.

    Yep thought it was, but a juvenile as it's tummy is spotty.

    Saw your swift report on the SOS :D

    Seen loads of swallows about recently and I'm sure there were swifts over the town hall today
