    Time now for answers I would think????                

    I'll second that!  You never know, there might actually be a species of bird known as 'God Only Knows'.

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

    OK, I'll post the answers tonight once I sort them out. :-)

    Once you sort them out?  I sincerely hope that you, at least, know what they all are.

    I do have a rough idea of what the answers may be. :-)  When I said that I’ve still to sort them out I strongly feel that since you are all such wonderful humans that I do like to present the final images in a visually pleasing manner for you. I’ve still to do this part of it….I’ll settle for nothing but the best for all of you.!!  :-)

    Paul, what a lovely attitude!  I look forward to seeing the highly entertaining answers suitably laid out.

    I didn’t doubt for a moment that between you, all of the photobombed phantoms would be identified. As is the usual, you all performed admirably in successfully identifying all of the birds with ease. I have to admit to enjoying doing this sort of thing because it also makes me look more closely at the birds by trying to work out which particular features would help to identify each one. The answers are as follows:

    1. Barnacle Goose

    2. Robin

    3. Red Kite

    4. Ringed Plover

    5. Gannet

    6. Wheatear

    7. Herring Gull

    8. Razorbill

    9. Common Gull

    10. Garden Warbler

    Well done to everyone and many thanks for taking the time to join in; keeps the brain cells ticking over. :-)

    I put on my best Red-fronted Jumper with a feather duster on my head and by whistling randomly whilst flapping my arms, I’ve somehow managed to lure all of the photobombing Robins away so that you can now see the original photos of the mystery birds as they should have been. :-)
