Just tried to copy the full list across to here, but site won't let me. It says only allowed to attach 20 files to a post- (it counts the links as files). That's not handy....we're gonna need to leave the links in the main thread and just update the species list (maybe with a link back to the most recent full list) and the additional 'new' species (maybe with links attached, if allowed). Not ideal, but maybe our only way to get around the new site limitations.


Come on, be honest, itโ€™s a good excuse to string a few too ๐Ÿ˜‚
My international birding experience is non-existent, so all my 'dodgy' international IDs are actual genuine attempts at an ID - often based on a rather ropey fieldguide illustration (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. :)).
 
Finally managed to find some Gannets (Ailsa Craig in the background too). - https://goo.gl/maps/f2mv7nxJRYDe3FGn7

Pretty certain this has to be a Rock Pipit (see them around while looking for Black Guillemots - though don't usually have to look too hard) - https://goo.gl/maps/EPGxxhsV989heq6A8
Marginally better Rock Pipit - https://goo.gl/maps/okaKrNn4EuQ4CnSC6
Nice additions! We've already got Tystie from Oban, it's one of the first ones near the start of the thread (y)

I'll see if I can find time to resurrect and update the list!
 
After scouting around trying to get clear Tysties and finding them at Oban, I checked the list and found they weren't required (should've probably done that first). They did get us Rock Pipit though, so wasn't a total waste of time.

Aye, worth it for the Ropits!

Tysties on post #18
 
Some for you to muck around with Nutcracker - I havenโ€™t got round to IDing them all

Myna, House Crow and Black Kite are all already on the list (see page 30 or maybe 31 for the full list) - and probably up there with Feral Pigeon as to birds most often found.
 
Spent too much time trying to find birds to feed this thread - arghhhhh!

Oh well, next rainy day my interest is rekindled...
