    Nocturnal flight call, Hampshire, UK

    Thank you... I did consider Spot Red but it didn't sound quite right for that either (also a mega in inland Hants now, unlike Green Sand). Tom

    Corvid(s)/Raptor(s), West Yorks UK, really bad photos...

    The second photo is a Sparrowhawk. The first photo may well be two Sparrowhawks although rather hard to be sure from that photo

    I'm trying to find a way of searching the database as you used to be able to, but can't find anything apart from searching the Rarities Archive which is not what I want. Is it still possible?

    1st-winter gull, UK

    Thanks for your thoughts Steve, I do see a number of 1st-winter Herring Gulls at this site with white heads, but felt all the other features on this bird pointed to YLG rather than Herring

    1st-winter gull, UK

I made the following notes: - Head white with a dark mask - Breast white with some streaking/spotting - Tertials dark with neat white edges - Long-winged - Bill all dark with obvious gonys angle...

    Birdguides new system

    I've tried to give a bit of time to get used to the new website but it's not happening for me. Just feels like less information in the same amount of space and much harder to navigate. All very disappointing. I will probably keep subscribing for the app although I only really use it when...

    Waders in Scotland

    I still think the bird in the second image is a Little Stint, albeit one of the greyish variation. The delicate feel of the bird makes it jump out as a stint sp to me, compared to the more chunky feel of a Sanderling. But to try to make a few more specific points: - The primary projection is...

    Ruff? Northern Iraq

    Yes, Ruff. The males are notably larger than the females which can cause confusion over size. There is also a lot variation between juveniles/adults and summer/winter plumage to add to confusion. This looks like a juvenile female moulting into its first-winter plumage.

    Immature gull, UK

    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

    meadow pipit for me

    They're pretty widespread really. But Slufters Inclosure would be a good place to look, or Knightwood Inclosure, or Highland Water :)
