    Raptor, Poyang Lake, Jiangxi Province, PR China, 09.12.17

    My initial thoughts were this was probably a Crested Goshawk but when I zoomed in on it I started having doubts. Perhaps it could be a juvenile but that's not a plumage I really know. It was taken at a distance and this has been heavily cropped but there is visible detail so would welcome any...

    Slavonian Grebe, Yancheng, Jiangsu, China

    Would I be correct in calling this a Slavonian Grebe - seems to have flatter head structure and a clear loreal stripe which helps distinguish it from the other contender, Black-necked Grebe. Many thanks.

    Bunting, Jiangsu, China

    The more I look the more I am drawn to Rustic; initially I thought Little, mainly because there are lots around, then Yellow-browed, but thought a tinge of yellow should be on the supercilium, then with the bit of crest and black on top I think Rustic - not sure at all. Buntings are pretty much...

    What Lens for Forest Photography

    I happily use a Panasonic GF1 for digiscoping and am contemplating buying a new lens as we are travelling to the Philippines and will be birding mainly in forests where digiscoping becomes much more difficult. There are a number of Panasonic lenses available: the 45-175, 45-200 or the 100-300 mm...

    Which Weaver: Baya or Asian Golden?

    I think this is a female Asian Golden on account of bill shape and size; not 100% certain though and would welcome a second opinion. A Guid New Year to all when it comes!

    Paddyfield or Richard's Pipit, Thailand?

    Initially I thought this was a Paddyfield but having looked more closely I now have doubts. I think the bill is too thin for Richard's, however the upper side is dark and lower is yellowish which cold support Richard's. Also the stance is very upright again which could support Richard's...

    Red-throated or Rosy Pipit, W Thailand

    I assumed this was a Red-throated as we have loads of them at the moment. However having had a look at the image at home and the field guides I am wondering if it could possibly be a Rosy. Just think the red on the breast is very full whereas the field guides are saying with Red-throated only...
