Scholes Malc, When you say Sams Bar - is it run by Sammy Duckworth - or am I behind the times?

lovely pic john, we have one comes in our garden early in the year maybe june it brought its young, only one but not seen young one now only adult bird. we also get a bird that we cant identify, its smaller than a black bird with a very orange chest its not a robin or a budgie, i have never seen one before,not seen it for a bit though, theres loads of birds at the bottom of our garden we love waching them.
