Guess which bird from my terrible photo?

Hi all......

.....especially newbies like me. I have been birding now for 2 months and therefore have fun mis-identifying and attempting to photo our beautiful feathered friends. I thought I might start a light-hearted "guess which species I was trying to photo" thread. All comers welcome :)


This is my first photo.....

LOL on second look, I'm now going for Teal!

That fluffy butt just screams Little Grebe...

Julie50 Saturday 29th April 2017 18:09

Sorry delia - Little Grebe it is :)

I will have to find a more difficult one for the next guess!

This sort of thread is usually placed in the Fun section of Ruffled Feathers Julie.

I see you're not subscribed to that forum as yet (it is easy to do). Scroll right down to the bottom of the Forums page and you will see it there.

I'll move your thread to that forum when you've got access to it.

LOL They never leave their bums up in the air for me.... they always completely sink, just leaving a ring of ripples on the water!

Hi delia

Unfortunately it says I do not have enough privileges to access that forum :(

delia todd Saturday 29th April 2017 19:11

Well done Julie, it's here now.

Perhaps a Common Kestrel?

Julie50 Sunday 30th April 2017 08:39

Indeed female common kestrel it is :)

Julie50 Sunday 30th April 2017 09:29

Not a bird!
