Ok thanks for that - Lynda
If you want to add a revision which includes the scientific name I would be happy to agree.
Oh and I’m not sure about the juvenile. We can see part of the front of the forehead in photo one and I can’t see any red on it.
Would you be able to explain the red forehead part for me? I know females don't have red on the nape of their neck, what is the relevance of the red in a juvenile please? (My book doesn't tell me)
No problem Lynda
All juveniles, regardless of sex, have red on the forehead/crown (see www.ispot.org.uk/node/49312 for example). They lose this at the first autumn moult after which they look like adults, at least as far as the red on the head is concerned, and as you rightly point out females have none at all while males develop a red nape.
Thank you Ray, that is really interesting and helpful. I have now added the correct name too. Hopefully I have done this right.
