|Oct. 24th - 30th, Bird of the week... a Bat? |
in the Obs Ringing Room.
caught at Barkland
Henry's costume... Dracula!
|3 little monsters|
|Pumpkin Seed Teeth|
|The scariest thing seen at this Auld Haalloween Party... |
was the Freak Show "Attraction" Bearded Lady
Nice Pumpkins! Party Balloons! etc... possible the only way I'll ever see Tits on Fair Isle? LOL
I count 56 Jackdaw? this is crazy!
Flying from the crop by the Puffin Hotel back to the crop at Nedder TaftI got a few rubbish record shots of Black Redstart, Stonechat & Whinchat but they are not worth showing as is the photo above or below. but if I don't show them? the other birdwatchers always "question" anything they have missed as something I may have misidentified... cheeky but true.
|Very late record... Stonechat |
With the time of year and winds from the east? I so wanted this to be Eastern or Siberian Stonechat... though it does have a very large white patch or collar? the breast seems much to orange for that.
|The sun is going down so early these days...|
Bramblings - lovely birds.....and I really like your photo of the Yellowhammer all fluffed up and crest alert!ReplyDelete
Nice way to finish your post Tommy with a sunset.
Best bird of the day for me yesterday at Barnes - a Common Redpoll!
It actually stayed on the same part of the tree for enough time for even me to get a photos (mind its the new clever camera really!)
Good Birds, Some Good Photos, I find your Record shots of birds really interesting of which puts identification skills to the test.ReplyDelete
Your Whinchat Looks like a Wheatear
The above photos are for you to compare, The Wheatear looks strikingly the same.
