Yep, looks Common to me, it doesn't have the stocky head of a Parrot

Great news on the crossbills Warixenjalka, that makes at least two of us who have added them to our garden lists this year!

75 Osprey I'd pretty much given up on adding one this year, seen close to but just not from home until this afternoon, soaring on a thermal. Lovely.
