Default The Bird thread.

I'm not sure if there is already a thread like this on the forum? But it seems that there are some "Bird lovers" about, so how about posting some of your bird photos here, on this thread?

I look forward to seeing some of your photos.

Several recent shots from me.

You should get back out there with the camera

Ive only been a "birder" for a couple of years now, but i always have the camera handy, you just never know what you might see?

Heres a "mixed bag"...Little Egret, Ringed Plover, Dunlin(I think?) Lapwing, and Golden Plover.

These were a fair distance away, so the image quality suffers.



And one of the Little Egret on its own.

I think they are just Ringed Plovers, and the ones to the right are just Juvenile RP's.

Of course I could be wrong, and some of them might just be LRP's? I did take a fair few photos on the day, so i will look at the other pics, but the distance involved was great, so its hard to tell.

It is hard to tell but both beak and legs are dark on the right sided birds, i presume with the golden plovers being in Shot the pics are quite recent?

Pics were taken on the 9th of this October, and there were well over 100 Golden Plover there.

I know what your saying about the colour of their beaks too here are several more pics.



There's an odd bird at the back/top in this next pic? it doesn't look like a Dunlin either?...a Little Stint maybe?
You can see a couple of these birds are showing the yellow in their beaks.



And to finish off with, amongst these same birds, I saw this one too...Could this be a Curlew Sandpiper?
