My BOTD on the 17th might have been a teeny weeny clue.

To be perfectly honest Judith, it wasn't your recent Botd that gave the game away. This was high level deductive reasoning based on an unidentifiable dark smudge in appropriate habitat (especially nesting habitat) for Treecreeper. Plus I see lots of them in a local woodland.

OK then; some might call it a guess
