Yesterday I shared three pictures and asked readers to try pick out the birds they could see. Here are the answers:
1. The bird in question was towards the left-hand side of the image, a little above the middle, and was:
Yes, a Pied Flycatcher.
Question 2 didn’t require so much ‘spotting’ as counting and identifying.
You hopefully spotted seventeen individual birds:
3 Ringed Plover (1 adult, 2 juveniles)
Hope you got them all?
The answer here was tucked all the way to the right-hand side of the image:
An adult and a juvenile Yellow Wagtail.
Thanks to those who had a go, either here or via Facebook/Twitter/Email to me directly. Congratulations to Mark Lucas who correctly identified all the species on show, though he doesn’t win the prize as he failed to provide a count of birds in photo 2 (sorry Mark!)
Hope that little diversion was fun, tomorrow morning I’ll have the first of a couple of proper posts from Spurn with some real highlights on display!
