    Thank you Andrew and Andy for the explanation. Hopefully I'll remember, but I seem to have more and more senior moments.

    Wheatear Cape Kaliakra, Bulgaria 24th May 2022

    I'm not sure about this wheatear. We were photographing Pied Wheatear and Northern Wheatears and I can't decide whether this is a female Northern or Pied. Thanks for any help received.

    Thanks, after posting I was checking and noticed the lack of wingbars. Also the dark legs confused me. There again, I'm easily confused ;)

    Rhodes, Greece Unknown Warbler

    Hi, I took a few shots of a Warbler whilst in Lindos on the Island of Rhodes, Greece. My 1st impressions were Chiffchaff, Phylloscopus collybita, but I'm not convinced and think it could be a Green Warbler, Phylloscopus nitidus Any help will be gratefully received Kevin

    Possible Grasshopper Warbler - Fairburn Ings Yorkshire

    Hi, I've just come across a shot I took in May 2011 and never IDed it. I know it's a poor shot, but is it possible to get an ID? Thanks in advance for any help.

    SA Cedarberg ID help

    Just as an aside, I put your image into the Merlin app, (using the South Africa pack), and it came out with Red-headed Cisticola.

    SA Cedarberg ID help

    Appears we're talking about the same bird. As usual, common names are confusing. One of my guides has it as Red-headed Cisticola and the other guide has it as Grey-backed Cisticola. They both have it as Cisicola subruficapilla.

    Red-headed cisticola for me.

    Egret, Spore

    Judging by the stocky appearance and relatively short bill, I would say yes.
