Thanks Ian, another early riser?
I was just having a quick check before going off bird ringing...I'm not usually up at that time! Have to get the nets up by 5 o'clock, as the main rush of birds comes very early. By 9 o'clock it has all gone quiet and I'm heading home for breakfast!
Eriothrix, by the way, is very common at the moment and a good one to get used to, for comparison with anything different.
My Flickr photos...
Thanks again, just like farming then, out by 0500 and back for breakfast by 0900.
Why on earth does this still have a likely ID of M. domestica?
Because no-one has agreed with the other ID or offered another suggestion. If you want to agree, please do.
