New bird arrived on the bird table today. Not sure but think its a redpoll. Thanks in advance.
Yes, it is a male Redpoll, Suzanne. Cracking little bird with stunning colour. I only ever see them in the winter.

A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song. (Chinese proverb)
Brilliant sighting Suzanne i don't even get them in winter even though they are in the fields/woods
My photos are on Flickr and Website
Wow Suzanne, fantastic photo, beautiful.
The truth is I'm mad. We are all mad and many are too mad to know the truth.
Thanks everyone. I think I posted this in the wrong part of the forum :-s. I did repost in the 'Identify This' bit so please ignore the repetition. And also for your paitence me being a newby and all. The Redpoll was a complete surprise to be honest. Would love to put a camcorder to record the birdtable 24/7 for a couple of days to see if I'm missing anything else. If anyone has any views on the best type I would be grateful for your comments. Thanks once again.
Hi Suzanne don't ever worry about posting in the wrong area the mods will move it.
I think you can get CCTV systems that come with a recorder..something like this www.maplin.co.uk/500gb-4ch-h.264-network-dvr-with-cctv-camera-and-mobile-access-617714
Brilliant, will look into that. Thanks.
Brilliant Suzanne. A lovely male in full breeding plumage looking like he has been dipped in pink paint, and a beautiful addition to your garden.

Really pleased. The Redpolls are back in force this year. We have 5 at the last count....which is 4 more than last year. Beautiful birds.
