    Thanks - didn't know that, was a bit of a surprise seeing them.

    Early Egyptian Goslings?

    2 very young chicks with parents in Little Venice, London on Saturday! Is this a bit early or normal for city behaviour? I presume the average temperature is higher in London than out in the sticks?

    Magpie nesting?

    Just seen a Magpie fly over my garden carrying a large twig, surely not nesting? What else would it be doing with it?

    Little Owls? (audio only) UK

    That may well be right - to my ears they sound more strident than a Little Owl, which has a rather more "hollow" tone. Did hear adult Tawnies but further away.

    Little Owls? (audio only) UK

    Heard two birds constantly, probably every 20 seconds or so as they moved around calling in the trees behind me just after dark. I'm assuming Little Owls as they don't sound like Tawnies or Barnies, but they also don't quite match the audio on Xeno Canto so thought I'd check here. I could not...

    Jumper ID - UK

    This is the third species of jumper I've found in the garden this week, but I can't find an ID for it. The nearest I've found online body-wise is a Sun Jumper but the palps and legs are the wrong colour.

    Would-be woodpecker
