    Pipit in Mallorca today

    I think this is a Meadow Pipit but I watched it for quite some time flitting about the rocky shoreline near some Turnstones and Sanderlings for a while and its behaviour seemed unlike any Meadow Pipit I've seen before. Could it be something else? Thanks!

    Mallorca 2022

    Happy New Year! In an unimaginably good start to the year, this Red-flanked Bluetail appeared in my neighbour's garden this morning. I initially didn't have my camera, and after an anxious sprint home I grabbed it and had to wait another hour and a half for it to reappear, and here it is! I...

    Red-flanked Bluetail? Mallorca today!

    I spotted this bird in the neighbour's garden this morning and I had great views of it briefly several times, seeing a blue tail and the orange flanks. I am sure it's a Red-flanked Bluetail, but because of how unexpected it is for Mallorca at all, let alone in January, I just wanted to check...

    Possible Eastern Yellow Wagtail in Spain this evening

    It certainly was! Some local birders are visiting the site with sound recording equipment tonight, so fingers crossed we may get an answer!

    Possible Eastern Yellow Wagtail in Spain this evening

    Thanks Alexander and Steve, Eastern Yellow Wagtail did cross my mind, especially after looking at pictures of first winters on the internet just now! I couldn't hear it call sadly, it was with about 300 White Wagtails and the noise all blurred into one!

    Possible Eastern Yellow Wagtail in Spain this evening

    I found this wagtail amid a White Wagtail roost in Mallorca this evening. My immediate thought was winter Western Yellow Wagtail, but it seems to be extremely grey for one. Is it a young winter plumage Western Yellow or something else? Thanks! Gregor

    Little Stint? In Spain yesterday

    I found this wader among a large group (about 60) of Little Stints yesterday in Mallorca, but its brown colouration and small size immediately stood out to me among the flock. Is it just a young Little Stint? Or one still with some summer plumage? Or is it something rarer? Thanks!

    Rainham Marshes Gull
