My hubby has had a few days off this week and has scoured the countryside for some photo's and he has come up with some cracking bird shots. Anyone who reads my blogs will know a few weeks ago I got soaking wet at Druridge Bay and I was so proud as I had spotted a bird that I thought was a Corn Bunting.....but after reading some comments I realised that it was unlikely, well....Mike managed to photograph a bird yesterday which was the same as the one I saw and this is it!
As soon as I saw it I shouted ..'Thats what I saw at the beach'. I have had a look through my bird guide and have come up with maybe a Meadow Pipit. The beak isn't the same as a Corn Bunting, in my defence it was raining hehe. The birds were everywhere, at the beach and in the fields. Any suggestions welcome.
Next shot was of a lovely family of Eider Ducks at Howick Scar. The females were doing a cracking job but no males about.
I have another dilemna, we have a photo the bird on the left that I think might be a female Redstart...I have come to this conclusion by the red chest, not as distinct as the male, pale eye ring and warm brown colour of feathers. I welcome any comments and suggestions if you know what this bird is then let me know. Apparently they were everywhere. There was birds everywhere which is typical because I was at work, never mind this weekend armed with my new binoculars (which I do not see double with YIPEE) I will be out and about hopefully with some sightings and snaps of my own.
