BirdNET is 'almost certain' that it is a Tree Pipit.

I can see why it would think that, but I've now listened t tree pipit, meadow, pipit, skylark and woodlark, and none of them match. Looking closely at the video, I'm sure I can see the white leading edge on the wing and a crest, so maybe a female skylark? They don't sing so much.

OK, just had an excitement. A medium sized bird in the sun room. I thought it looked like a sparrow hawk, female.

It left this, 12cm long.



all the little birds have gone from the bird feeders.
It is simpler than it looks.

Hmm, could be, but there have been sparrow hawks spotted up here.

I had the wrong lens on the camera and it took offence at me trying to photo it with the phone.
