Believe it or not Larry that is the Las Vegas Wash on the south east side of Las Vegas, NV. This area is part of the Clark County Wetlands Park. The water comes from Storm Run Off, and from the Water Reclamation Project. The Wetlands Park and Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve are both feed 24/7/365 by the Project. The water is all of the waste water in the valley that has been treated and released into the wash. It finds its way down to Lake Mead and in the valley something 97 percent of all waste water is reused.

The where? should be fairly straight forward but does anyone want a stab at what it is as well? Taken in South Wales today.

Spot on again Rafael. I got a little closer and managed a snap before he flew off.

Well, if it weren't for Paul Longland saying where the bird was I'd never had seen it, despite it being in the center of the image!
My best guess for a possible bird before Paul's suggestion was the white speck next to the hedge, to the left of the gate...
And a great snap you managed!

Thought I might show my total lack of photographic ability too.

First one is relatively easy. Taken earlier this year a few mile from home. My first attempt at digi scoping. Wont be giving up the day job too soon

Second not so easy. There are actually two birds here

Given they're everywhere at the moment I'll try Hawfinch for the first. Struggling to find anything to guess at for the second

The first was taken back inthe suumer. Perhaps a little disengenerous of me to say a few miles up the road. It was actually in the next county and certainly not something that i would have expected to come across in the normal course of events. The bird is amost dead centre. As for the second the bird on the water is common enough but not as you normally expect to see them. The second is somewhere on the rocks.

Second pic: GBbGull on the water. Can't even see a bird on the rocks so will take a stab at Shag.
