This warbler popped up from within the bushes today whilst watching the Shrike at Canvey Marsh Essex.
Probably just a Reed Warbler but it provoked some discussion on site so I thought as I managed to get a snap shot of it I'd post it for others to consider.
your thoughts welcomed
Seen today in Suffolk, I was told it was a Shrew but I thought it was a baby Wood Mouse. Please could somebody ID it for me, thanks in advance
It appeared to be blind so I'm guessing it's quite young, had really strong back legs.
I have been visiting Titchwell as my annual new years day tick venue and with a day to go I'm just wondering where others plan to start their new year list.
Do you have a ritual?
Do you plan it around any rarities that have hung around for new years day?
Do you visit your patch or do you just...
This fella has been visiting my garden for a week or so and finally dropped in today so I managed to get a photo..a poor photo but a photo!
He has a white collar almost like a reverse Ring Ouzel on the back of his neck and the local Blackbirds don' like having him around...smart bird though. B (:

would welcome any comments from the BOP guys.;)

Bird only stayed a couple of minutes and left me thinking Golden Plover
I'm thinking it's a European but thought it worth posting for some forum agreement. thanks Brian

any help appreciated
I took this picture on Skomer in April 2008 and it's bugged me ever since
Just flicking through an old file and it remains nameless so i'd
be glad if you'd take a look an give your thoughts on it....I'm probably missing the obvious but I'd like to finally tag it before I delete it B (:
Can I ask those that know more than me to point out why the Cley bird is a Pacific and not an American...all the reference I have reviewed shoes the white to run right down the wing on Pacific and only past the breast on American. The pictures of the Cley bird show only a short run of white. I'd...
