Crossbill!

Surprise of the month, or even the year, was the juvenile Crossbill which greeted me when I got up this morning. I peered through the kitchen window to see a load of Greenfinches munching on sunflower hearts, and... a streaky grey-green Crossbill perching on an empty peanut feeder! Of course, it flew off before Darren could get downstairs to see it, but that's what you get for staying in bed too long.
