Lovely shot - well done!

I saw a dead bird yesterday. Nothing unusual except that this one was well up at the end of a branch on a fruit tree. It was quite big, around buzzard size. The body was lying along the branch with the wings drooping down either side.  I couldn't see the head, which was probably drooping down the far side from me. No idea how it got there, unless it misjudged a stoop and hit the tree, or someone shot it. Just outside a village that's not too likely, though.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Well we saw a Greenfinch on our feeders today. Quite a rarity now  :-\

I've had a few on my feeders - they seem to come in groups (as do the goldfinches), then you don't see any for a few days. Like at the moment.  All sparrows, tits, starlings and robins.  I seem to have fewer visitors so far this year compared to last year - maybe because it's milder an there's more food around?  Had a few long-tailed tits, but they also seem to have moved on.

Is it time to change the title of this thread?

The title suggests there's more than one kind of bird.

What's the other kind?

Is it the Sid James variety? If so, I don't think we're in danger of confusion.
