Stone-curlew, Thick-knee or just plain Dikkop?

Posted Monday 9th December 2013 at 11:31 by Rick and Elis
The Burhinidae have a number of names. In the UK the only example, in my youth, was simply known as Stone-Curlew (as it still is in HBW I happily note), but that now usually has to be qualified with Eurasian, although BirdLife now call this Eurasian Thick-knee. This qualification comes about due to the form indicus being potentially split as a different species (the Wader Quest list shows it as a seperate species) which becomes Indian Stone-Curlew and the Australian birds also previously being called...

A Spark Ignited

March, and the excitement builds as spring ever nears. The bird watching sites are scoured for the first sightings of the season. Then, after what seems like an eternity, the first Osprey returns to the UK from West Africa. The tension builds when you are waiting for the Osprey you follow to return. In my case, this is Monty, the male Osprey at the Dyfi Osprey Project. He is the ultimate bird; both fish-winner and nest-husband.

Dumfries and Galloway Big Day Out (2)

Posted Saturday 23rd November 2013 at 11:22 by Green Sandpiper
So, we've been to Ken- Dee, we're still bewildered at having travelled down at silly o' clock, and still on a high after getting great views of the Kite. Sat Nav duly programmed for Caerlaverock, and the twitch is on. (It wsan't really a twitch for the GW teal, since I was going there anyway......)

I heard the storks bill-clattering when I entered the zoo .
