OK, here's a quick and dirty one to ID. It's not what most people will think it is, it's the North American equivalent so Google may help.

That's a great high res image. Is that a home made set up? I like the side on view.

Our nestcam is nowhere near that quality https://gardenature.co.uk/product/wi...igh-resolution

Home made. They date back 30 years. When I realised it was the 30th anniversary I thought I'd post the sequence from nest building to the young leaving. Actually there's one shot after the young have left to post.
