Bird news from across North Wales and beyond
Reminds me a bit of a tailless Penduline Tit; but I think it is Great Tit too.
Male Desert Wheatear! No, seriously, I haven't got the foggiest - looks a bit like one of those porcelin birds of unknown (as in made up) species that my Granny used to have stuck on her mantlepiece. This also does look a bit plastic and glued in place. Considering how inbred the human population is on the island it could well be a totally new endemic...;-D
Sorry that this is not about the above bird. How can I start a thread, I've no idea and I would like to share e.g my photos of the huge flock of Starlings I saw yesterday. The above bird maybe a Hawfinch or a Chaffinch. I think its real not stuck up there.
I thought it looked more like a dodgey house sparrow but I agree with Andrew's comment... porcelin all the way ;)
IMHO it's bigger than you first think. It's a lot further away than the feeder looking at the ivy/creeper on the tree. Looks "pinkish" on my laptop - a bit like http://shopping.rspb.org.uk/p/SingingBirds/Chaffinch_singing_bird.htm ?Adrian
