          Your right it is difficult from your shot but my guess is a Knot.

                            No problem Keith, but you did have us all waiting... hehehehe.

                            OK, I guess it's on me to upload another so here's another fairly straightforward one for now. Cropped to death as it was miles up in the treetops.

                            ID please...

                                Mike, nice one. A Blackcap in the treetops it certainly is. OK, over to you for the next one.
