You are correct Michael. I thought Rafael was going to get it when he went for Marsh. Saw 6 species of Tit that day which is a joint record for me. 5 ( Long-Tailed, Great, Blue, Coal and Marsh) were in the garden, and the Willow Tit was at Garwnant.

I left the forum right after I posted my suggestion and spent the rest of the day out, but it would be my second choice, yes That must be a good bird for the area?

Not an easy bird to get Rafael but Garwnant is a fairly reliable site for them.

Here's a couple to get your teeth in to. Both taken in South Wales over the last week or so.

I'll start with Tufted Duck for the 1st one... I thought about Capybara for the 2nd, but the water droplets are not distinctive enough

PS: I assumed they were both the same bird...

Lol. Sorry Rafael. Different birds. Not Tufty by the way.

Wow! I totally missed the perched bird and assumed the thing in the center was a duck, diving! Ok, lets restart then I'm still really not sure, but I'd try Blackbird for the 1st (but there's something odd about it). For the 2nd I'd say Kingfisher...

You're right about the blackbird but it was the duck(?) I was after in the first picture. And not a Kingfisher by the way.

Hi Julie. Nope to Gadwall and it is what's making the splash. Not a Dabchick.

I was trying to make these more difficult and may have gone too far Julie

I'll give a couple of clues:

1. Rare for South Wales. Was associating with Pochards and Tufties. May have been on this thread before but definitely a different individual

2. My 7 year old refers to these as "up, down, funk you ups!"
