Male

This is a male, as the cap is black, rather than brown. They are not that unusual right to the north of Scotland, through the winter, in mild areas by the west coast. My mum, in the very North West corner at Kinlochbervie, has had one around her garden, in recent days. They are probably of Eastern European origin.
