We can only assume it has come from another family some distance away as we reckon we have about three or four families visit our feeders. Anyway he/she seems to be quite at home and isn't mobbed by the others although the bird seems to be a bit put off when the crowds of jackdaws are about.

Unusual capture. Would have been nice to see posted at larger size.
