I noticed this when some Dutch birders were doing a Western Palearctic 'big year'. All sorts of sightings suddenly appeared in Surrey, which were clearly erroneous. I imagine that the people in...

I saw avocet, pintail, short-eared owl and long-eared owl on the north Kent marshes yesterday. And rough-legged buzzard. And corn bunting.

My satnav made heavy weather of finding Prestwick Carr.

goosander?

Just wanted to check that this is a goosander. It's a photo I took in 2011 in the English Lake District.

Is this a recent project? I filled in a questionnaire some while back which seemed the same or similar. I wonder if I saw it on FB or elsewhere. I don't want to bias the results by filling in two...

I've not got any lifers listed for Christmas Day, in the UK or anywhere.
I'm sure I've done some birding on Christmas Day but I don't think I've ever gone out for the day.

I'm a big fan of eBird and use it almost every day.
But it can be abused. For example, I have seen birds listed as 'in Surrey' (my home county) which just don't occur here - some guys doing a 'big...

Thanks for the idea. It is in the UK. I wonder whether Zygiella x-notata could be a possibility. It apparently often builds its web on window panes.

Thanks, Both,
Could it be a male wasp spider?
I only ask because there was a female in the same spot earlier.

Bumblebee ID

Is this Bombus pratorum?
The abdomen looks a bit too red but I'm not sure.
Thanks.
