Still plenty wintering over here in Scotland, Hans. They don't seem to mind the cold too much.

Very nice pics, Hans. Probably the best photos of the Black-Bellied subspecies I've seen - though I don't think I've ever seen one so comprehensively black bellied.
Hans van Kersbergen
Thanks Barry.. What species do you see in Scotland. Is that the red-bellied one?
Barry Farquharson
On the east coast where I am they do have at least some red merging into black further down the belly. The amount of Red varies

Nice one, Hans. Only ever seen one but it was so close I probably could’ve reached out and picked it up.

I think something is wrong out i...View More
