Redwing

Looks like a redwing to me. I can see a patch of red. Also the characteristic white line over the eye is clearly visible and it is perching more like a thrush.

Thank you! I have uploaded

Thank you! I have uploaded the picture which I had felt was that bit too indescript to put on here. Now I have Redwing as an id, I have added it, as the red patch on the wing is clearly visible on this one.

I had been watching Treecreepers scuttling up and down tree trunks, but was unable to get a picture. I hoped I had snapped one perching in the next tree, but it would appear not! Very pleased to have spotted a Redwing as well though!

Saw loads of redwings last

Saw loads of redwings last year but not seen of heard one this year!!!! I haven't managed to see any of these infamous flocks of waxwings that have been doing the rounds either. Well spotted!

Just go out there and do it!!!
