    Hi from Manchester UK!

    Hi everybody! I hope you're all enjoying spring as much as I am. I've been getting acquainted with the resident great/blue tits and finches in my garden. I also had a family of ring necked parakeets visit the pear tree last winter. Although they're quite common in the south (London) all year...

    UK Bird ID please

    Hi All - a little phone shot my son sent me this morning that I can't seem to identify. Thought Male House sparrow at first because of the black bib, but the head looks too black. Can someone enlighten me please? Many thanks.

    Taken at Bempton Cliffs, probably at about 04.30 as the sun was rising so you get that soft, warm light, which makes it so much easier to get the exposure correct plus, at that time of day you have the place to yourself.

    Red Admiral

    I was able to get right next to this foraging Red Admiral in my garden but because it's a camcorder it clearly lacks sharpness. Yet it seems to have acquired a canvas-like look and you can make out the face and other bits I am ignorant of!

    The good thing about using a camcorder is that you suddenly find unexpected events that you can take a still from, eg this hoverfly dropping in on a marbled white butterfly!
