UK: can anyone ID this insect from an incomplete image?

I took this in south London on 24 May. It's the only shot I got and was taken from about 4 metres with a telephoto rather than macro lens.

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

My guess would be that the .tmp files appeared because of an "untidy" installation of, or update to, Flash Player (which you need on your system in order to play videos from YouTube etc). If you...

Hi Delia

I did a quick search and these files are created by Flashplayer. If you are able to delete them, then I'd do that. If they won't let themselves be deleted, you could right click them to see...

Shield Bug (?) for ID

I photographed this strange-looking creature today, on leaves of a sycamore-type tree about 25 feet above ground level. My best guess is some kind of shield bug, but I could be wrong.

Could someone...

Large gull, London UK

Taken from my window today. The bird was being harassed by Carrion Crows: I don't recall seeing a large gull getting this treatment before. It settled on a neighbour's roof and the crows lost...

Thanks very much Rafael. On reconsideration, maybe what I took to be a "growth" on the upper mandible of the far bird could be a smear of mud. Perhaps I was being unduly pessimistic: if they have the...

Oops, you are of course right Delia, I inadvertently did exactly that - clicked for updates on S&S's bunting. I've now disabled that. Doh, these "senior moments" do happen now!

I think what nartreb said is right. It's difficult to be sure why a bird looks a bit of a mess. Your Robin could have a nutrition-related problem, or it might be that it's having a "bad hair day"...
