Trip Report by Mate and Fellow Traveller Garry Wilkinson
This may seem like a strange title for a report on our field trip to Gambia 9th March- 16th March 2017 but the reason for it will become clear.
Trip participants were Nigel Moore, Martin McClenaghan,William Smiton and...
Help needed to ID this small bird seen by a friend near Tendaba, Gambia last week. It was skulking in the scrub. Robin sized with a pale eyering. Sorry about pic quality. Behaved like a Robin and reminded him of a Red breasted flycatcher.
Has anyone any experience of a company called CPES who do camera and lens repair. My insurance company want to send by damaged 500 f4 to them to fix. I'm very uncertain of not using a Canon Authorised Repairer.
Any birding skiiers out there. Over the years have had Snowfinch, Alpine Chough, Alpine Accentor, Citril Finch and even a Golden Eagle when skiing. Heading to La Plagne at the end of the month and wondering if anyone has any local info of what might be found there.
How do you users of large lenses such as the 500f4 carry your lenses with other equipment. Can you get it into anything which will carry other stuff such as bodies and still travel as carry on handluggage for air travel
Having had the ID of this one confirmed it might be useful in the database as there don't seem to be any other pics. You can choose from three.
They were taken in the garden of the Fairview hotel, in Nairobi, Kenya
I haven't been able to find a pic of this one on the Database. Probably spelling something wrong.
Here is one I took at Nakuru, Kenya in July that I wanted to compare with something. Maybe someone can tell me what I am doing wrong
Need a little help to ID / confirm some weaver species found in the garden of the Fairview Hotel in Nairobi in early July.
For 1 and 2 suggest Baglafecht Weaver race reichenowi male
For 3&4 same species female
I have put this one down as a Northern Mockingbird but I am worried by the end of the tail on the first pic. Maybe it is just the angle of the photo.
Sorry, taken in Virginia in June
Help to ID the attached 2 birds seen in early June at the State Arboretum in Virginia would be greatly appreciated.
My effort would be Cactus Wren for the first two pics and Eastern Wood Peewee for the other
