Recorded this over a garden in Hampshire a few weeks ago. Unfortunately only one call
The closest thing I can think of is Green Sandpiper (Tringa ochropus) but doesn't sound quite right.
MP3 and sonogram are attached
Any help appreciated
One for the gull experts to help me with. I saw this 1st-winter a few weeks ago in southern England. I made the following notes:
- Head white with a dark mask
- Breast white with some streaking/spotting
- Tertials dark with neat white edges
- Bill all dark with obvious gonys angle...
Posted this on another forum and got no reply so thought I would try here... This gull stood out from surrounding Herring Gulls as it appeared very long necked and with quite a different posture. Unfortunately didnt manage to get a view of it side on. Any thoughts would be welcome
I am going to the Gambia 10th-17th Feb with my family, staying at the Senegambia Hotel. My family will probably want to do a bit of birding, especially my mum, but I would like to maximise my time birding by meeting up with any other birders who are there at the same time and sharing a...
I will visiting the Outer Hebs in late July and I'd like to know a bit more about places to go birding.
I have a copy of Birdwatching in the Outer Hebrides by Peter Cunningham which is a nice book but rather out of date. Are there any other books which I should get with better information...
I'm travelling on the plymouth-santander ferry tommorow - what birds should I see (bearing in mind I've never managed more than 2 hours sewatching before without getting bored ;))
Are there likely to be other birders on board who will show me a Fea's Petrel? ;)
Well I've left it a bit late to ask (leaving on Wednesday) but I am going to spend some time in Monfrague as part of my Spanish tour and was wondering If anyone could give me some advice on the following species. It may be a bit late in the year for some species but I would appreciate up to date...
I thought I'd tell a story from my garden from last Sunday. I woke up early to go out birding and heard chirping noises from downstairs. i worked out that there was a bird somewhere in our house. I got my mum up and she found it hiding in a corner of a room. It was a young blackbird. Despite...
I'm suprised that no-one has started this thread yet, but migrants certainly coming in now. Looking at the reports clearly lots of Wheatears and LRPs arrived overnight, also many Sand Martins still.
Personally I heard at least 5 Chiffchaffs this morning.
A new idea unlike the boring old photo quizzes ;). Guess the location from the picture. I won't have enough pictures to post so others are welcome to post their own for guessing.
Try this one for a start:
There were 2 Hedgehogs in my front garden tonight and then were constantly making funny sniffing noises. I see hedgehogs in my garden but regularly but have never found them to be quite so vocal. Could someone explain what they were doing?
went down to Hengistbury Head, Dorset this morning to see Storm-petrels. Yesterday 108 were seen and loads the days before as well. Arrived at 8:00 and it was tipping with rain. Walked down to the beach, via c20 Wheatears, Stonechat, hirundines, Linnets and Rock Pipit. Got down to the beach huts...
