We have seen another feathered friend in our garden.

Claire managed to snap a photo using her mobile phone.

The bird looks to be juvenile, but I have been unable to work out what breed it actually is.

I discussed what it could possibly be with family. I also posted the photo on a web forum for bird enthusiasts.

While the image quality didn’t help, everyone was left no wiser than me. I found this to be reassuring – it would be so embarrassing if the bird just turned out to be a young blackbird.

Suggestions as to who the visitor could be included…

  • Nuthatch
  • Pied Wagtail
  • Starling
  • Wheatear
  • Wren

A juvenile Nuthatch certainly appeared to be the most popular opinion, including from someone who claims to be very knowledgeable on ornithology.

I know it’s not an ostrich and I think it’s unlikely to be an albatross…

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
