Haha imagine having 50 birders outside my back gate. I think my noisy neighbours would scare all the siberian jays away before anyone arrived.
Ah wow, glad you were able to confirm it was a black redstart! A new one for my list 🥰
The bird was just in my garden a couple of minutes ago. I quickly grabbed my husbands proper camera but it was out of battery 😭😭😭😭 So the best I could do was take a pic on my phone through my binoculas. They aren’t very good pictures and I didn’t get the orangey tail undortunately.
Today I saw a bird in my garden that looked like a cetti’s warbler when i’ve looked in my rspb bird book and then on google images.
It was roughly the size of a robin, pale brown with a slightly darker brown head. I did notice it had an orangey tail.
It was alone and just sitting on...
