  • In reply to Mike B:

    I left one out, my guess, a juvenile herring gull, but I'm happy to be corrected.

  • A couple yesterday on the ferns, a plump wild rabbit and a rather scary little owl.. Not sure about the ID for the second bird on the ferns, loads of meadow pipits around but not sure.

  • Lovely set, Bob. The bird on the Ferns looks like a young Reed Bunting.

    My bird photos HERE

  • In reply to Paul A:

    Thanks Paul. I saw a few adults so it makes sense.
  • A spot of early morning urban/back garden birding yesterday (Sunday 18th), and a few just catching the early morning light, and a dunnock catches the early morning light on a neighbouring leylandii.

  • Choughed with these

    Over 23 of the beauties showing off their flying skills 

    It really lifts the spirits watching them play on the breeze and then drop down for a quick feed in their little family groups to then all swirl up raging into the air

  • Wonderful sight up there in the blue sky happily playing.

    Lot to learn
