It’s those incongruous moments that are so memorable!Great idea for a thread. My once-onlys are Tawny Owl (although same bird over several nights), Common Whitethroat, Lesser Redpoll and annoyingly an in the dark, most likely Woodcock which I spooked as I opened the kitchen curtains backlit to look at a heavy snowfall! I assume it had moved in with the snow.
Urban garden, no decent habitat in immediate vicinity
...Woodcock outside the “back door”, Stonechat by the “wheelie bin and for me...putting the rubbish out circa midnight and hearing once (no it can’t be I uttered) followed by “wet-my-lips” several times more...pure magic.👍
