  • Bird ID?

    Apologies for the quality of these pictures but they were taken through glass. By the time I opened a window it flew off. I dont get many birds in my garden in the winter but this one had an unusual colour on its head. Any ideas what it might be?







    Thanks Mowgli

    Looks like a female Blackcap to me.

        It is indeed a female Black Cap. Sometime it will be more red'ish, but mainly brown on the females and black on the males. The 'cap' doesn't quite cover the eyes.
        Good pic though Mo ... to say it was through glass
        Canon 7D, Canon 40D, + lots of bits
