I saw a bird I can't identify with the RSPB thing. Not in our garden but the park on Saturday walking the dog. It had a white face with black stripe across the eye and was small. It wasn't there very long but what plumage I saw was green or grey. The thing is the face was totally white apart from the stripe whereas the identifier thing shows me birds with a stripe but other colours on the face/head

How big, compared to a blackbird for example?

We saw a bird we couldn't immediately identify. It was kind enough to make a few appearances and we decided it was a female blackcap.

The only bird I can think of is a pied wagtail ... common in my childhood, endangered now :533: Or possibly a rare migrant, the black-eared Wheatear ...

We used to see lots of wagtails when we first moved here but, now, we don't see any

That's a beautiful bird!

I didn't have a chance to do the birdwatch, which was a shame because at one point we had no less than 13 blackbirds on the back lawn!

We don't have too many birds in our garden as it is in the city centre but occasionally see blackbirds and lots of house sparrows. My cat is deadly (have tried to put a collar on her but she looked so depressed!) so rather the birds stayed off the grass. I won't have a bird table as she would think it is a buffet table!!

Our cats wear collars with a bell but still, occasionally catch a pigeon, not usually the little birds.

Hopefully not like the pigeon we were given as a present-minus the head!

Have seen a blackcap on the feeders a couple of time today - first time I've seen one!
