In a spot where I've not recorded owls for many a year. Is it an owl pellet, is it possible to narrow the species (Little, Barn, Tawny) down by the type of pellet/prey remains? Are any of the remains identifiable?
Hi all, I am up near Thirsk for a long weekend and hope some of you can give me some pointers on good places to go.
I've just read Duke Leto's thread and will certainly try and get to Flamborough Head, but would like some tips on inland birding.
A bird that I'd really like to see, as I haven't...
First time I've seen this visitor to my garden and a lifer whatever it is.
I think Marsh tit - the cap appeared glossy, certainly when compared to the Greats and Coals which are frequent visitors and I couldn't detect a pale panel along the secondaries.
Or is it Willow tit?
Can anyone confirm...
I saw this duck (one of a pair) at Loch of Lowes, Scotland at the weekend.
They did not get close enough to the group of mallards further along the shore for me to get an accurate impression of size.
Any idea what this duck and its similarly plumaged friend are? The white 'bib' has me baffled.
Warblers never cease to annoy me when it comes to ID
1 Sedge warbler?
2 I really don't know
3 Not a warbler, I know, but if it's a linnet where's the red on the breast?
Thanks for any answers you can provide
Sorry for the poor quality of the pictures, I was at my max zoom and it was quite blustery.
Hopefully you can make out enough to give me some idea as to what I saw.
The bird was one of a pair, the male of which had the most vivid scarlet chest I've seen on a bird. Much redder than say robin or...
