    Thanks burnie for that update! I'm going there on Sunday morning and was going to take my "big lens" to try for the Kingfisher, Great White Egret etc but I won't bother now. Will just stick to the VC

    Europe's Birds: An Identification Guide

    Yes now I have all three! Here a few comparison photos of BB and EB together. All in all EB is fantastic with some great improvements to BB! I'm so glad they changed the main photo of the Tawny Owl as the one in BB always kind of annoyed me 🙈

    Europe's Birds: An Identification Guide

    Thanks for that Andy I'll keep them in mind for future purchases! I've always used NHBS for special nature books rather than Amazon. Even though you have to wait a tad longer they package the books properly and don't send you ridiculous amounts of cardboard in an order. I'm hoping it arrives at...

    No we didn't go Delia as the hides are closed. What a coincidence about Magpies as I had one in my garden on Sunday! We have a pair that live locally and I actually quite like seeing them as they only started becoming more common here in the last 5 years or so.

    I'm planning on visiting Kinnordy on Wednesday I take it it's open? Don't want to travel all that way to find it closed. This will be my first trip out of the house (aside from going to work) since February so a tad nervous what with Covid but have not been birdwatching for ages and miss Kinnordy.

    Pug ID Scotland

    I've looked into Edinburgh Pug and I think you're right but I think it may be a better match for Freyer's Pug (arceuthata) than Edinburgh Pug (millieraria). Thanks for the help!

    Was wondering if anyone can tell me if this is a Mottled Pug or not? Not 100% sure thanks

    Britain's Birds 2nd Edition

    I agree with everything you've said stonefaction coming from this area of the world too! I wonder what they based their maps on and from what source? I always find the BTO maps to be the best.

    Britain's Birds 2nd Edition

    Would love to hear your views on it John! The pages seem a lot clearer and printing seems to be better. I like the inclusion of the roundel symbol for gull aging to show how many years it takes for them to become adults. Just wish they had chosen a different Tawny Owl photo that stance just...
