Given her surname, reader Helen Bird has quite aptly captured this photograph of a feathered friend in her Stanley Common garden.

She called it her ‘garden visitor’ and it appears to be a bird of prey.

If you have a photograph for our Picture of the Week slot, email us on, tweet @IlkestonTiser or post on our Facebook page.

Also let us know if you can identify what kind of bird it is.
