    Norfolk birding

    I'd rather guide my Dad into my Mum, than be forced to read another page of this thread...

    Norfolk birding

    According to the Daily Mail, it was the over use of foreign deodorant cans, applied by illegals. Also, it's likely to give you cancer and decease the value of your home. Hope everyone one is well and getting a few birds, Kieran

    Wainscot UK for ID

    Hey guys, My own thoughts are Large Wainscot, but a friend had it down as Bulrush. If location helps, it was picked up on the Norfolk coast, but frustratingly no date. Cheers, Kieran

    Can someone ID this bird for me please?

    Good point, Tarsiger. I am sure, Phil would have gotten round to pointing it out, he's good like that and with such politeness too. What a guy. He'll sort your spelling mistakes out and everything. Cheers, Kieran

    Can someone ID this bird for me please?

    I tried to leave a wee avenue to explore for the guy, Phil, that's all. Ruddy Shelduck isn't a Cat.C in Britain, Mute Swan does fall under that section and so does Greylag. Was silly to use Mute Swan as an example, as you pointed out and as I admitted. What did I write which was 100%...

    Can someone ID this bird for me please?

    The lad said he was new to the game, Phil, so I was just skimming the topic. You and I know that there are many branches of discussion in terms of classification, with the amount of categories many birds fit into. In terms of Greylag, for sure.
