Bird watching between heavy showers today.
Starlings – size wise they are a bit smaller than a Blackbird. From a distance in their flocks Starlings look black or brown but when you see them closer they are full of colour – very glossy with a sheen of purples whites and greens.
A Pied Wagtail grabs a spot on a fence once the Starlings have flown off.
I always find it quite difficult to identify which Godwit’s we see at the Haven.I ask myself are Black-tailed Godwits or Bar-tailed Godwits? I had some help with this today the picture was a miss – totally missing most of the bird taking off but his tail was a give away in identifying the bird. (she last Godwit picture for the answer).
Confirmed they are Black-tailed Godwit’s !!!!😊
Redshank were about again today. The first two pictures give a good size comparison with a Snipe.
