ID help: possible young reed bunting & others (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

Hi all,

'Help appreciated.

I think the bird in photos 1 and 2 is a young reed bunting?

I'm pretty sure the little bird in photo 3 is a greenfinch, and I think the bird in photo 4 is also a greenfinch but the light is throwing me a bit. It's probably the same bird but confirmation appreciated.

Photo 5: I don't have the first clue.

Photo 6 is the stunning redwing. Can anyone lay claim to knowing whether male or female?

'All photos taken on the coast in County Durham.

Thanks in advance,
