Since the tone is very much in danger of being raised in this thread, allow me both to bring things down to earth and present you with my latest ID challenge ...
In reply to Internetman:
A wild guess, great white egret,
Long dark legs, orange/yellow bill and lots of white plumage.
But then I could very easily be wrong, but I'll have a go.

I think by now, the mistle thrush had gotten fed up with me and my camera, especially as it was wanting to feed and I kept getting in the way....
The winter thrushes rocked up today - had about 30 Redwing flinging leaf litter everywhere and I managed not a single decent photo and then the battery went flat :(
In reply to Germain:
Most of my photos are bad ones so I won't put all my bad ones on here!
Just a few to start off
This was one of my first photos from when I got my first camera. Can you see the Dunnock?
5 starlings and I couldn't get one without a twig or branch obscuring something!
I was so pleased about getting the wire into focus when this jolly bird came and ruined the picture! (Its a gull by the way)
In reply to BenjiS:
I'll share a little secret with you, most wildlife photographers have more bad photos than good, even pro and press photographers will reel off a great many photos just for that one publishable pic. Nature isn't easy to photograph and when the weather doesn't play ball as well, it can make the whole thing interesting.
Thank goodness for digital, or the costs developing film would be horrendous!
