Your first bird is a male Blackcap with the top of his head obscured by a (close?) out-of-focus branch. [...]

Thank you Jack, I would never have thought to see one, just remember its name (German: Mönchsgrasmücke) from my childhood. Pretty song too, heard him first and took me a while to spot him high up in the tree.

Here's another one, just before he took off, where the cap can be seen more clearly.

Not the greatest, just glad to finally get a shot of the GBH. Missed a few other opportunities the last few weeks:

He's like a feature in a stained glass window - a jewel of a bird. Super!

You guys/gals who live coast have probably seen a Siren before.
This was completely new to me! And to think the GBH swallowed the whole
thing.

Geeez! I've never seen one, but I'm pretty sure that it didn't struggle after that!

I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.
