Photographed this afternoon.
Slowly getting to grips with the Sony camera. The zoom lens is quite something, let me tell you. This bird was among the uppermost branches of the neighbour’s extremely overgrown privet about 15 feet above me.
A few of the birds seem aware of my unsteady hand and are very obliging at trying to stay still for a whole second, as demonstrated by this rather handsome Bulbul.
These are regular visitors to our spot and their aerial antics are often humorous and entertaining.
The Wiki link also provides an audio of their call, bless ’em.
