‘Spot the birds’ quiz answers

Yesterday I shared three pictures and asked readers to try pick out the birds they could see. Here are the answers:

Where is the bird, and what is it?

1 Where is the bird, and what is it?

1. The bird in question was towards the left-hand side of the image, a little above the middle, and was:

dsc007461

Yes, a Pied Flycatcher.

Question 2 didn’t require so much ‘spotting’ as counting and identifying.

How many birds, and how many species?

2 How many birds, and how many species?

You hopefully spotted seventeen individual birds:

3 Ringed Plover (1 adult, 2 juveniles)

2 Turnstones

1 Sanderling

11 Dunlin

Hope you got them all?

And finally:

Where is the bird, or birds, and what are they?

3 Where is the bird, or birds, and what are they?

The answer here was tucked all the way to the right-hand side of the image:

DSC00913

Two Yellow Wagtails

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!
