Photobombing Fun

Pesky Robins....just because it's almost Christmas they always seem to want to get in on the act when I'm out taking photos.!! Perhaps you could help me identify the original intended targets before the Robins muscled their way into the photos? As always though, it's just for fun, so please feel free to give it a go.  :-)

  • OK, here we go.

    1 Barnacle goose

    2 Goldcrest?

    3 Red kite

    4 Dunlin

    5 Gannet

    6 No idea.

    7 Herring gull

    8 God only knows!

    9 Common gull

    10 Whitethroat?

    The intruding robin in each is gorgeous, by the way.

    Our herring gulls are red listed birds.  Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

  • In reply to HAZY:

    Having a go too:-

    1.   Duck billed platypus (or a duck of some sort)

    2.   Round robin

    3.   Buzzard, but then I noted Hazy's Red Kite, much better

    4.   Plover (thanks again Hazy)

    5.   GB Gull

    6.   White chested little bird, my book says could be Wheatear

    7.   Fulmar???

    8.   More questions

    9.   Herring Gull Now that's for sure!!!!!

    10.   White throat, well it certainly has one.

    Must be bedtime    Tara

    Some interesting answers so far, I’ll leave it a bit longer yet, just in case anyone else wants to have a go.

    1.   Duck billed platypus

    Without wanting to give too much away, I think that I can safely say with a small amount of confidence that this may not actually be the correct answer for number 1. It’s the wrong time of year for them.!! :-)

    LOL Paul, of course if you say it with an Aussie accent it could almost be believable.  I blame my laptop, this is the first time this morning I have been able to get on to any programme, so last night I must have been also feeling frivolous.:-)
