    If black cab drivers were ornithologists.

    No photo as I only spotted it after it started flying away, but I had a red-tailed hawk in my back yard yesterday morning.

    You know, I'd identified a goosander on the far bank of the river where I took the picture, with its distinctive russet brown head. I didn't realise the sexes were different colours.

    It is definitely a goosander- saw one on the river in Annan last week and looked it up

    I think your second one is a Goosander AH.

    A couple of recent shots. I think the duck is a goldeneye albeit without a golden eye.

    Odd - when I quote you, the image link is there, but no picture is displaying? Edit - now showing in my post!

    Cranes could nest successfully in Ireland for the first time in 300 years - their close relatives, herons, are known in Irish as corr reisc, or marsh crane, which indicates that the rarer species was indigenous formerly.

    Oh, good for you for looking after it while it was stunned, and fingers crossed indeed that it's recovered OK. Lovely looking bird.

    EIM - fantastic shots!

    Quite a bit milder in our backyard where we had this little black-headed grosbeak bash into our dining room window. My wife feared it would not survive, but held it for a few minutes, stroked it, and it eventually flew away from her hands. Crossed fingers it is hanging in there.

    While we’re on big raptors:

    More than 15 rare birds, whose population is at about 160 in the state, showed up at Cinda Mickol’s home – and they’ve made a mess

    Eagle spotting today. Three white-tailed eagles from two different breeding pairs off the west coast of Mull. Then a golden eagle not far from them when we were back on land. What a buzz.

    I've been investigating and I think it must have been a linnet. The lesser redpoll (which is the only European one) doesn't seem to get this far whereas the linnet is definitely here. And I didn't see any red patch on the head.

    Saw a green woodpecker on a walk yesterday evening. It was hopping along with us about 10 metres behind it for perhaps two minutes or so, so we had a nice view of it, though we didn't get a good photo. There are loads of great spotted woodpeckers here - in every other tree at this time of year, it sometimes seems - but the greens are much less common. We also have the black woodpecker, which I've only seen once. Like the green, the top of its head is a very bright red.
