Reed bunting female


One of the many buntings at Stotfold, I went to try and get an image of a corn bunting but this was the only subject i got close enough to.

Early Nesting Moorhen


Taken on 5 Feb 2010 at Whipsnade on Flamingo Pond

Radwell White-fronts

Establishing a new low in photography standards - so it was dark and I've lost my state-of-the-art Plumb Centre adapter for my camera... Pink-feet in the background!

Some interesting Crossbills





Lee Evans comments:
"These two female-type crossbills were seen very well at Jackdaw Hill, Lidlington, recently. My attention was drawn to them by their very low guttural sounds and melodic phrases - typical sounds most commonly made by Parrot Crossbills!
Both birds had a large head and evenly-thick mandibles, with no overlap/crossing of the bill tip. They were most likely Common Crossbills of the eastern form, breeding in European Russia.
Best wishes
Lee"
Many thanks to Robert Chapman for the accompanying images.
