I was at Ainsdale beach, in North West England yesterday and photographed what I think maybe a moth. I've looked through the images on Google but could not see anything like it. If anyone can identify it, that would be great.
At one of the sites I regularly visit in Bahrain, I have so far come across three gulls that have had their bills locked with tie-wraps. What purpose this serves is beyond me and where it happens is also a mystery. One friend had the idea that it may have been done to use the gulls in lures...
I took the linked pictures on Friday but can't positively ID the bird. The nearest I can come up with is northern or southern red bishop, female or non-breeding. All help is appreciated.
This wheatear that was photographed in Bahrain on Friday has proved difficult to identify, there have been several suggestions and doubts. What is your opinion?
I put these pictures on another forum and they identified them as black-eared wheatear. Subsequently there has been a shift to possible pied wheatear. I'd like to know the thoughts of the experts here.
Links to the pictures, these are all the same bird...
A friend sent me this picture today and asked me to ID it. The nearest ID I could come up with was dark-throated thrush. It was taken in the shade of a tree so may appear darker than it is. What's your opinion?
I took a couple of pictures of this bird this morning. I think it's a chiffchaff but it has hardly any head markings and a very plain breast. I was wondering if it could be a caucasian chiffchaff?
There's another picture in my gallery at this link...
