Oh, so just like us getting married and being expected to take our husband's surname ! Typical male proprietary attitude :shock: :lol: :lol: :lol:
:lol: :D
DD2 always said, from being little, that she would keep her Dads surname. She did! Double barrelled now. Her husband had to pay to take our name on as it's last. Hubby found that amusing but secretly he was very touched.
I posted a picture of the male in our garden on March 9th fwiw.
Found it! Thank-you Greta. Very unusual. Unless it's because I'm observing more now. Always like seeing the birds in the garden but didn't take much notice of the types.

thanks Greta - must admit I'd forgotten that :blush:
Unusual yes - but at the time I saw it I read that they were migrants, I think (wash my mouth out with soap and water!), and this was the time of year they were looking for a hedge to spend the summer in, so that was not a regularly repeated visit.
The most exciting thing I've seen this week - I put up the trail camera again to see when foxes are passing through, and in the dark at 5 pm there was the neighbours' dog!
Greta wrote:We have so many sparrows and I nearly missed this bird among them - never seen one before in my life, but obviously I realized it must be a blackcap.
Cool capture Greta: deserved much better recognition.
Heres one I found at Perth a wee while back: I was at a carers conference and went out for a stroll along the river.

Another bird at the rowan berries: this time a blackbird: apparently quite a few of them are migrants, too, which I hadn't realised:

Here's a cutiepie: a long-tailed tit, one of a small flock that come to my feeders every day now: (and which reminds me that a few years back, one could not use the word 'tit' on this forum because it was in the list of banned words: luckily we changed that rule: we can change all the silly rules like that if we try hard enough).

It must be winter coming on that is bringing them out.
