when I parked up on Tuesday morning, three little beautiful birds flew onto the side of the wall I was facing. They had red faces, with black flashes and yellow flashes on the wings with fawn coloured bellies. same size as a robin
They were there again this morning. I promised the missus that I would find a piccie on google for her, but I just tried for twenty minutes and I got nowhere:frown

either I am a sh1te googler, or they were escapees from somewhere


:rolleyes:

Close, but they had a bright red face, rather than the rusty brown

There's been a lot of sunshine lately.

Depends on the lighting

ruddy great tits by the look of it.

A baby wren flew in through my car window last year, where I was parked down a country lane in Marlow.

Took me ages to shoo it out again, even with all the doors open.
