'Continental' Goldcrest

Spent more time looking at Goldcrests today. Note how the grey head contrasts with the olive mantle on this presumed Continental bird - this was the most striking individual I could find, though I'm sure the bulk of the current influx originate form the Continent.

This is a more typical individual - possibly 'Continental' or possibly a local bird. Can you tell I've been reading Martin Garner's recent article?
Mistle Thrush - The Maer. These are difficult birds to catch up with in Exmouth. The only other bird of note today was a Black Redstart on the Foxholes Estate.
