Wings on Wednesday

On and off I get visits from a Stock Dove. The past couple of days there have been two. Maybe a nesting pair not too far away.

Stock Dove 4

Another visitor which is seen occasionally is the Goldfinch. Recently it has been rare to spot two on the feeder.

Goldfinches 9

This is only the second time I have seen this particular bird. I guess it may be a female Blackbird though the feathers are grey rather than brown. This one is a lot more timid than the regular Blackbirds. It certainly looks like a member of the Thrush family. Any positive identification will be welcomed.


Mrs Great Tit roosted again in the nest box last night and has made a few visits to add softer material to the nest.


  1. Great shots of the Goldfinches John.

    Certainly looks like a Blackbird to me.

  2. A superb set of images John.

  3. Beautiful photos John! It sounds good news about the Stock Doves.

    I think it must be a Blackbird although I did wonder about an aberrant Fieldfare! It's a lovely photo though.

  4. Thank you Jan.
    It does look sort of half and half - very confusing to identify, for me anyway.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
