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 ?
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 ?
saw these waders mingle with dunlins at Whiteford Sands (north-western tip of the Gower peninsula) earlier today - they're the ones in the foreground of the group of waders
not sure what they are, my best guess is sanderling or little stint - am i close ?
when doing a walk on the Long Mynd (Shropshire) a few days ago, i saw a kestrel making several in-flight attempts at catching what looked from a distance and with the naked eye a house martin
is this normal behaviour, or was this bird just overambitious ?
after having given up, it went for a...
sorry if the attached image is of rather poor quality, but i have trouble getting a positive ID from it - the yellow on the wing seems to say goldfinch, but the rest of the body is so non-descript that it might be a young greenfinch too
picture taken a few days ago in Romsey, Hampshire
several of these were sitting in a tree at the Kennet & Avon canal near Crofton, Wiltshire - at first i thought they were house martin, but after a closer look i seem to see a shade of pale russet on the neck, so maybe could be a barn swallow ?
from the "peewee" call i'd say the attached is a redpoll (common or lesser, i'm not sure), although looking at its colour scheme i might be totally mistaken and it's a linnet - unfortunately the quality of the pictures is rather poor
pictures taken earlier today from WWT Steart Marshes
i saw the attached birds (2 separate ones) near Ravenspoint on the east coast of the Isle of Lewis in june last year
originally i thought they were rock pipits because of the place where i saw them , but i kept on wondering : do rock pipits have red / pink legs ? i thought they were darker than...
if it hadn't been for the different facial markings, i'd have said the attached goose was a white-fronted one
however, not sure what the different face means - is it a different type of goose, or is it a hybrid ?
picture taken yesterday in the Abbey Grounds Park in Cirencester
quite some time ago I uploaded a picture to Wikipedia that I confidently identified as a Marico flycatcher (Bradornis mariquensis)
looking back on this picture, I notice that someone - presumably with a...
i was told the attached were (greater) white-fronted goose + seeing their location should be the European subspecies (Anser albifrons albifrons) - are the attached images of sufficient quality to confirm this ID ?
pictures taken about a week ago in the fields outside Damme, to the north-west of...
all the attached i would have ID'd as northern wheatears, apart from the fact that in a different thread a similar bird was tentatively classified as an eastern black-eared wheatear
the first one comes from Tyrins (north of Nafplio) the other four (all different birds) from Ancient Mycenae, all...
saw the attached birds near Cape Tenaro, the most southerly point of the Peloponnesus in the first week of september
they behave a little bit like stonechat or wheatears, so i suspect they could be whinchats
can anyone help me out ?
