  • Blue winged Teal
    The Blue winged Teal is a small dabbling duck, where its placement is no means a certainty. The coloring is remarkably similar to the Australasian Shoveler, but genetic testing shows that its nearly identical to that of the Cinnamon Teal. Occasional visitors come to the British Isles, distinct from the local Eurasian Teals and Garganey by their yellow legs and distinct white facial marking.

  • Mistle Thrush
    Found in open woodlands and cultivated land all over europe and much of asia, the mistle thrush is similar in appearance to the song thrush.  However this bird is larger than the song thrush, and has neat round spots as opposed to the well-known heart-shaped spots of the song thrush.  The breast is also much less buff.  The song is a simpler version of the blackbird song, and the alarm call similar to rapid gunfire.

  • Golden Plover
    Breeding adults of the Golden Plover are black & gold spotted on top of the back, head and wings. Their face and neck are black with a thick white border, a black breast, black legs, and a dark rump. In winter, they have an off-white face and breast and white underneath. <br/><br/> What makes this bird special in the UK is an amazing 500,000 birds overwinter here.

  • Bullfinch
    A finch usually located by its sad tones, the bullfinch is best looked for at woodland edges.  It has in the past been considered a pest in orchards as it favours eating buds off the trees.  But due to recent declines in numbers, this is no longer strictly the case.</br>  It's a mainly resident bird in its breeding range, with some of these birds moving a bit further south in the winter.  They are resident in the UK year round.  You will also find this bird in europe and the temperate regions of asia.

  • Great Cormorant - Juvenile
    The Great Cormorant is a very large black bird.  With a longish tail and yellow throat patch, the adults have white thigh patches in the breeding season.  It can be distinguished from the very similar Shag by its lack of green tinge and lack of crest.  An extremely wide-spread bird, its breeding range extends all over europe and asia, south across africa, to the atlantic coast of North America.

  • Little Bunting
    Smallest bunting of west Palearctic, with delicate but compact form and terrestrial behaviour recalling Linnet and Dunnock. Distinctly less bulky than Reed Bunting, with sharply pointed bill, flat sloping forehead, little or no neck, shorter, straight-edged tail, and shorter legs.
