We had a couple of new visitors this morning

To the bird feeding station out the back in amongst the sparrows and tits: a pair of Reed buntings see here and here with sparrow behind. The male hadn't developed the striking black head that they get later in the year, but was a little darker than the female.

I must be looking at (feathered) birds too much, if I can tell the difference between a sparrow, a dunnock and a bunting. Each of them are small, brown and unspectacular, if not un-attractive.
