My problem with the name Black Vulture being used for the American bird is that it's that it's not a vulture. As a member of a new world taxon with some visual similarities with true vultures, it...

Bluefin tuna are actually very fast-growing so that large individuals are not necessarily very old. This also means that if the fishing pressure is reduced, the stock is able to recover quite...

The red veining in the wings and the yellowish pterostigmata with a dark border make me think these are Red-veined Darter. It's also pretty early for Common/Ruddy to be on the wing in the UK.
