Firecrest, Kensington Gardens

Fiona Barclay at BirdGuides kindly donated these excellent stills of the recent Firecrest at Kensington Gardens 'for your delectation'. Max Whitby somehow captured the footage on his whacking, great big HD camera despite bad light and the flighty nature of the beast. Thanks too to Des McKenzie who found the bird (and a second yesterday!) and has been keeping us all informed at our desks.

... and the four Tawny Owlets (picture also courtesy of our friends at BirdGuides) have been showing particularly well too.
