Old thread here: http://www.rspb.org.uk/community/chat/f/2542/t/22684.aspx
Because the original thread has, fittingly enough, 'gone bad', it's time for a new 'Bad pics' thread. Here, we celebrate the very worst of our wildlife photography. The subject matter is always brilliant, but the photos are very much not. If it's out of focus, chopped in half, frighteningly under- or over-exposed or terrible in some other way, it belongs here :)
Here's my first (first of many, no doubt) contribution to the new thread, a Goldcrest taken at Barnes yesterday. You need only minor incompetence to take a blurry photo, and the same to take a really under-exposed photo, but to do both in one go requires a special level of cackhandedness.
A perfectly decent bad pic…….totally ruined by an in focus bird.!!
Please accept my apologies, I really must try to concentrate less.!! :-)
Shame about the Kingfisher and Bullfinches but you did manage to get the Wagtail Germain.
It's been a few years since I've spotted a Grey Wagtail in the garden - oh well hopefully it will be back, at least I managed to attempt a photo unlike the Kingfisher I completely missed and the Bullfinches

A ghostly apparition.
That's what you get for forgetting to check the shutter speed when a Willow Tit takes off.
Quite recognisable as a beautiful male Kestrel, great pose! Thanks aitch!
very grainy, distant and hard cropped pic of what is supposed show a male Kestrel lol (for Wendy ! )
Egrets doing what they do. One of each Little and Great, I'll let you decide which is which
Perhaps the phrase about Ostriches and sand should be about Egrets and water!
Two Kingfishers lol oops !
