Did everyone spot the basic I.d. mistake in the latest ‘Nature's Home' magazine?
Yes, took me a while to finish it, so if you didn't notice it first time, it is likely to be near the back......
I didn't, unless it was the chaffinch with what seemed normal legs, in the article about the growths chaffinches can endure.

I will go for the bird photo marked as a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker on page 73 which looked more like a juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker. I don't think Lesser have the white wing patch as shown in the photo, but then again I'm no expert !
post edit: Tony beat me to it but glad we are of the same opinion !! phew !

The page wasn't marked up as an ad like several others are. A UK map with birds and associated captions, so designed carefully not to look like an ad.

That is why I never spotted the error, it glared advert to me, and I switch off to all adverts with the way they are bombarded at us these days.
I may not have spotted it, anyway, but we'll never know, and there's no way I can check back, as the mag has been passed on to a friend to read.
