    juvenile ?robin - Somerset

    just thought the colour seemed too yellow - although that may have been an artifact of the lighting conditions

    juvenile ?robin - Somerset

    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

    Thank you

    ?stonechat, West Wales

    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

    ?reed warbler, 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

    ?skylark / meadow pipit Northumbria

    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...

    linnet or twite, Scotland

    that's where I've my one time of seeing a twite - at Tolsta north of Stornoway I can see from the distribution maps that a sighting is less likely near Montrose

    you never know when in Scotland, chances for twitter are a bit higher than elsewhere in the UZk

    linnet or twite, Scotland

    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 ?

    Black-/Bar-tailed godwit, Anglesey

    thanks, i'll try and keep those pointers in mind next time i'm in the field (which might be some time since i'm in local lockdown in Cardiff, soon to be converted into a 'firebreak' lockdown)

    Black-/Bar-tailed godwit, Anglesey

    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...

    ?dunnock, Anglesey

    thank you

    ?dunnock, Anglesey

    two separate birds, the first one i'm fairly sure is a dunnock, the second less so both pictures taken end of september at Newborough Warrens, Anglesey

    Black-/Bar-tailed godwit, Anglesey

    not sure which of the 2 it is, black-tailed or bar-tailed godwit pictures taken about a month ago at Penrhos on Holy Island, Anglesey second picture shows black-headed gull for scale

    pipit, Vale of Glamorgan

    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 ?

    pipit, Vale of Glamorgan

    tried to put both pictures through Merlin, but it can't make a decision between meadow and tree pipit - presumably the quality of the images is insufficient to come to a positive ID pity

    pipit, Vale of Glamorgan

    once more, thanks for making the effort on what are no doubt unsatisfactory pictures

    pipit, Vale of Glamorgan

    unfortunately that's all the pictures I have here are the same pictures, slightly larger and less dark - hope that helps https://i.imgur.com/0jsv0HX.jpg https://i.imgur.com/XXnV9lo.jpg

    thanks again

    pipit, Vale of Glamorgan

    thanks - i'll take that as a provisional tree ID then

    pipit, Vale of Glamorgan

    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 ?

    young greenfinch or chaffinch, Cornwall

    thanks - i suppose the sunlight seem to make it look like a greenfinch, but on closer examination of the pictures already suspected chaffinch was more likely thanks again for clearing up my confusion
