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.
Brilliant sighting Suzanne i don't even get them in winter even though they are in the fields/woods
Wow Suzanne, fantastic photo, beautiful.
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.
