Obviously I'm not expecting anything definitive from this but …..;)
This acro was flushed from irises a few time last week in Shetland. Our initial impression from fleeting glimpses was possible BRW but I think this picture seems to confirm Eurasian Reed Warbler?
Can anything be deduced...
A few from Texas:
1) Kingbird(?) near Mexican border
2) Lesser Nighthawk (also near Mexican border)
3) Seaside Sparrow? (South Texas)
4) Sparrow somewhere in South Texas!
Many thanks again!
I'm sure I'm wide of the mark but does the recent Bempton Cliffs Red-breasted Flycatcher look a little like Taiga?
Sorry can't point link but photo was taken on 16-Sep and is on Birdguides and Surfbirds
I have a record of seeing an Isabelline Shrike at Horsey Gap in Norfolk in October 1996. I don't remember it clearly and have no notes.
Does anyone know if it was assigned to a particular race at the time i.e. isbellinus or phoenicuroides?
Without wishing to open up the whole crossbill taxonomy debate, does anyone have a view on the attached? The photo was taken near the Findhorn Valley on the road over to Loch Ruthven. Common Crossbill?
Birdwatching since I was 11, that's 36 years ago. Twitching only since 2003, strict BOU list, currently 407. I promise to try only to post when I haven't been drinking! This is my first post to any Internet forum and it's fair to say I've been drinking. First of many broken promises!
