I inspired him.

I presume he saw my effort and decided to show how it should be done.

As an analogy, I guess Wembley 2015 comes close.

Nope, not a native bird anyway but...

I think golden eagles and white tailed eagles are our only native eagles as far as I know.

I love birds but I hate starlings . We get infested by them and they bully everyone else out of it until they decide to get lost . Hideous noise as well

Starlings are the teenagers of the bird world, hang around in gangs squabbling and making an annoying racket. 

They have beautiful plumage though.

Seen a stoat and a bull finch today. Bullies round here are rare indeed....

Last night we saw a wren in the garden. The first one in 32 years

We've got a wren but don't see it that often - Mrs saw it last weekend so we know it's still around (there's at least one up at the allotments too who can often be seen rummaging in open compost bins). Not seen a bullfinch for a while although they have occasionally visited.

Well chuffed to see a pair of yellow wagtails and a little egret near Faxfleet this morning.

Me and my son (10 yo) made some bird boxes a couple of months back and put them up round our garden, more in hope than anything. Happy to say we have a pair of Blackcaps nesting in one and we think they have young. I'll try and get some pics.......proper made me happy,and we've also seen an influx of birds visiting our garden this year. It's nice to sit and watch them.

I've set my camera up to record the box. Someone has told me they could be coal ####, so now I want to know for sure. We had 6 feeding on the garden last week in a little group and they all looked like Blackcaps to me. We're lucky if they are.
