my first impression of the attached bird is that it's a juvenile robin, however, the colour pattern makes me doubt this assessment
can anyone have a look and confirm or refute ?
picture taken a few days ago in Horner Wood, Holnicote Estate, Somerset
after some consideration, my best guess is that the attached is a young stonechat
however, with it being a youngster i'm not 100% sure, so i thought i'd better ask here just to make sure
picture taken a few days ago at St. Davids Head, Pembrokeshire
the attached juvenile bird looks to me like a reed warbler, but being a juvenile i'm not totally sure - can anyone confirm
pictures taken a few days ago near Abermawr beach north of St. Davids in West Wales
i saw this bird, which i thought was a skylark from its song, and when it landed on a post took the attached picture
now that i've had time to take a closer look at it, i'm starting to have my doubts : to my (inexperienced) eye it looks like a meadow pipit !
can someone put me out of my misery...
i saw this bird in June 2018 near Montrose Basin and originally thought it was a female linnet
however, going through some of pictures i'm starting to think it might be a twite
can anyone help me resolve this quandary ?
no offense taken
i was under the impression that i observed just the one bird, however, i didn't keep it under observation at all times, and it's possible that a second bird entered the picture without me noticing - i had just assumed that the different colour pattern might be due to different...
one more thing : the place where I saw the bird was densely wooded, something that may not be obvious from the pictures
so this was not a stand-alone tree but part of those woods, at the edge of the path we were walking on
do meadow pipits frequent woods of that description ?
i saw this bird high up in a tree in Henson Woods, Vale of Glamorgan earlier today
sorry for the poor quality but the marking seems to indicate a pipit - since it's in a tree, does that make it a tree pipit, or is it a meadow pipit that just happens to sit in a tree ?
