    I see the Bean Goose is still on the Shotwick fields. Does anyone knows if it's a Tunda or Taiga race?

    Ptarmigan on Cairngorm

    Glenshee is the easiest one to go for! I saw them there a few years back, was fairly easy to see. I think this thread is in the wrong forum though. :-)

    Raptor watchpoints - Swanton Novers

    Thanks Tideliner. I'm heading back home to Cheshire tomorrow, so I might try the Notts site which is a little closer to home. Perhaps that is the most reliable site in the UK now? Hope you feel better soon and thanks for advice, Dave

    Inner Marsh Farm - from the horse's mouth

    That doesn't look like a Peregrine or Merlin to me. First thoughts went to a Lanner perhaps?

    Isn't the new reserve called Burton Mere Wetlands (BMW) ....you can almost see a sponsorship deal :-)

    Inner Marsh Farm - from the horse's mouth

    So do you still use the Station Road point to get to the "old hide" as it's being named? I remember when that was built and used to be just a screen. In fact I spent many hours camped out on the railway embankment watching from the railway sleepers but enough of my reminiscing. Looking forward...

    Interesting Chiffchaff Song / Call

    Thanks Phil - it did strike me as different and not something I've come across before. I wasn't that close to the Chiffchaff and it's not a phrase I've heard previously. At first I thought it was two different birds. It was the acro type call that attracted my attention in the first instance...

    Interesting Chiffchaff Song / Call

    Hi everyone - listen to the middle section of this Chiffchaff. It has an acro sound to it. I was wondering if anyone else had ever heard this variation of the call / song. DPR.

    Cheshire And Wirral Birding: Hills, Lowland and Coast

    Well we've all been there at one stage or another! I will never forget my horror of seeing a cattle egret many many years ago without bins only to return to site with other birders to discover a White farm duck in the same field. I literally bent over with my hands over my head with the level...

    Cheshire And Wirral Birding: Hills, Lowland and Coast

    As I said, I would love to be proven wrong. I didn't realise this had been seen by a birder, I presumed it was someone with an interest in birds that had passed the description on. I suspect we will never find out either way. Got the blood pumping for a short while at least ;-)

    Cheshire And Wirral Birding: Hills, Lowland and Coast

    What is most likely then? Believe me I would love to be proven wrong on this one. However, an immature Little Bittern and a Snipe do share some sort of similar features. I've seen Snipe before in the Leasowe fields and they can walk in a stilt like manner. Anyway, I don't wish to cause...

    Cheshire And Wirral Birding: Hills, Lowland and Coast

    Apart from the size reference, I wonder if the bird may have been a Snipe?

    Lake District Golden Eagle.

    Have there been any recent sightings? It's been some years since I saw the golden eagles in the Lakes. Just got back from a trip to the western isles and no Golden Eagles but very happy with the white tailed sea eagles seen.

    Skye Eagles

    Thanks guys - I saw two WTSE on the boat trip from Portree but got excellent views of another one at the Otter haven to the south of island. Glad to have caught up with this awesome bird!
