I didn't realise they were rare. If I'd known I'd have tried harder. :huh:

Great pictures. You have convinced me that it makes sense to get a DX for hand help bird pictures

Perhaps they are only rare in my area.

@@Soukous Your Marsh Sandpiper in post #24 doesn't look right. Perhaps it's a Wood Sandpiper.

@@Geoff, I'm far from certain about the ID but the wood sandpiper has yellow legs and a yellow part of the bill - I can see no yellow on this bird.

@@Soukous Before you responded I checked the id with a gun birder. Definitely a Wood Sandpiper.

 

You can tell it isn't a Marsh Sandpiper ~ they are slender & elegant birds and have needle like bills as per your image in post #25

Your female Variable Sunbird image is a knockout!

The flowers around her are stunning.

Thank you.

Just for a change I've been showing an Australian friend some of the highlights of our British countryside.

The weather has been pretty much exactly as everyone would expect for October and pretty lousy for photographing birds but I did manage to get a couple of snaps.

 

A pair of Mallards

Right now there are pheasants everywhere but they don't like to stay still too long in case they get shot at.

And on the North York Moors I was lucky enough to see some Black Pheasants through the fog.

we also saw black and red grouse too but sadly no photos of them.
