Another unusual visitor (26/02)...

Weather today again today was fantastic, clear and sunny. The recent group of Siskins are still present and it was nice to also see a couple of Greenfinch too which seem a bit scare lately. The Song Thrush was back again, this time feeding on the ground and at the bird table but I failed to get any half decent pictures. But it was later on in the morning that there was an unusual vistor to the garden, feeding from the table but mostly on the spilled seed on the ground, a male Yellowhammer. I have seen Yellowhammer in the garden before, once. It was for a split second early one morning, but this male came and went for most of the day staying for around 10 mins at a time. I took to the bird-hide shed to see if I could manage to get a photo, see below for results.

Yellowhammer (Emberiza citrinella)
