    That seems much more likely, especially as there were other linnets around nearby! Thanks

    Pied/white wagtail - which? Worcestershire England

    A lot of variation in the colours of the wagtails chasing around today - I admit I’d always assumed these were all pied but is this an example of pied and white together? Or adult /juvenile, or something else entirely? Any thoughts appreciated!

    Tiny duck - Warwickshire, England

    Definitely smaller than an Eurasian teal, there are lots of those at our local nature reserve and while smaller than the mallards the size difference is much less striking. Looking at the ringed teal this looks like a perfect match ( photos rubbish but I did get a really good look with my bins🙂)

    Apologies for the appalling photos, but any thoughts on this tiny duck (mallards left in for scale) on a park lake in Warwickshire today? A visitor, or an escapee from somewhere? Thanks

    Hi, could I have help with an ID for this small wader, North Norfolk marshes this morning? I’m thinking sandpiper but can’t find a good fit for the leg colour. Thanks

    Mystery duck - any ideas please? Warwickshire UK

    Thank you - definite similarities. I think I’ll just have to accept this is an oddity hat won’t get a definitive answer. A shame, they were lovely ducks!

    Thank you - will do.

    Mystery duck - any ideas please? Warwickshire UK

    Thanks both - the photos are rubbish but do accurately reflect the colour and patterning, especially the clearly defined white patches on the head. Really wish they had hung around until the morning!

    Reed Warbler - ring ID? Warwickshire UK

    Hoping this is a reed warbler (?) seen today showing off its set of rings very nicely. But how do I go about finding out more about these, have no experience of colour ringed birds..

    Mystery duck - any ideas please? Warwickshire UK

    Came across a pair of ducks in a small pond in woodland in south Warwickshire yesterday evening - apologies for the rubbbish phone photo, went back early this morning with my camera but they had gone🙁 Drawn a complete blank on identifying them, now wondering if they may be a hybrid? Teal sized...
