    ?white-tailed eagle - Oban, Scotland

    i saw this bird flying very majestically from the coast south of Oban towards the island of Kererra picture taken in the last week of august around 7.30pm my first impression was that this was a white-tailed eagle, but don't know if the attached picture is sufficient for a definite ID

    gadwall or teal?, East Anglia

    both birds were sitting next to one another on the same log, and to my untrained eye looked like they were the same type of duck

    duck, Blakeney

    oh ? why is that ? mind you, one appeared to be chasing another for no reason that i could see

    duck, Blakeney

    thanks - so obviously a captive, it's not very likely that it would have got to Norfolk under its own steam

    gadwall or teal?, East Anglia

    duck, Blakeney

    not sure about this one, since i saw it at the Blakeney Conservation duck pond, so chances are that this is a captive bird, in which case i shouldn't really post it here still, i can't place it amongst the run-of-the-mill UK ducks, and on the off-chance that it is an interloper from further away...

    thanks for helping me out of this muddle - never been that good on waders, especially when in adult summer livery

    ?razorbill, Dundee, Scotland

    a few days ago i was in Dundee at the borders of the River Tay near the road bridge and saw several birds in the water that i first took to be guillemots however, on reviewing my pictures, i noticed that some might not be guillemots but razorbills i've attached four pictures, the first two...

    ?sanderling, Scotland

    not too strong on waders, so thought of posting this one here, which to my inexpert eye looks like a sanderling - close or not ? picture taken about a week ago on the beach near Gairloch in the Wester Ross area of the Scottish Highlands
