I believe this one is the female stonechat.

Also near the gate by Pony wood were a robin and this wren.

    Posting this on behalf of Michael S:

    Couple of goldfinches sat on those new willow rods by the stone orchard sign this morning. Also, bird box 2 has fallen off the tree and is lodged diagonally in some branches about a metre off the ground. However, two blue tits were showing interest in it.

    There was also a Greater Spotted Woodpecker in the trees next to the volunteer shed.
