Re: id please
Just noticed another bird in the 1st pic, looks like a starling just right of centre at the top of the pic. Did you by any chance hear any calls at the time? Have a listen here and see if this is familiar. I would be inclined to agree with those who have suggested fieldfare as the shape looks right...

Hello - I have seen a male Blackcap on the fat block in our garden today for the second time. Never seen one here before!

I saw a bird, about the size of a greenfinch or goldfinch, feeding on nyjer seed in the tray beneath the f eeder. I am sure it was not a goldfinch (adult or juvenile) or a siskin, both of which I know well, because it had a red or pink patch at the top of its head, a pink or red top breast, creamy...

Is this a redpoll?
Anyone any idea what this is? Sorry not great image - it's taken at full zoom and then zoomed in again on the picture itself! It had a redd-ish forehead. Looks like a finch. Wondering if it's a Redpoll - but is it too big to be a redpoll?

Wader ID needed....pretty please
Ok, this image was not taken on any of the reserves but rather at my place of work. I work in cold storage and this bird came in off the back of a lorry that loaded locally. It then spent three hours in zero degrees until it was boxed up and given to me in the office. He soon came to life once...

Re: Little Egret in Rutland???
Today we saw an egret on the road between Caldecote and Northill, Bedfordshire. There was a ditch at the side of the road and he was obviously looking for food. I had no camera but have seen egrets on the R. Thames so am pretty sure that is what it was.

Small duck like bird?
Hi, I saw this bird at JCB lake in Rocester on New Year's Day. Have checked the RSPB identifier and a couple of bird books but can't find it. It's pretty small as can be seen by the mallards next to it in the pic. Any ideas? Also does anyone know of a species list for this place...

Re: Unknown pair of birds in garden. Please help identify
Sorry - no image, but birds were sparrow sized feeding on lavender seeds. Looked like a juvenile goldfinch but body was predominately brown apart from yellow flash on edge of wing and black barring on head. Live not far from countryside and also not far from sea in urban area.
