362) Pintail Duck.

I'd hoped to get three new species today but couldn't find a Golden Plover or, surprisingly, a Pheasant. They must have all been shot:(

362........ over and out !

I could add a bad photo to make one more but I have posted enough poor ones! Instead I'll post the best from today, a Common Redpoll found in an upland area in North Wales

This is the Chinese species which has now been classified as different to the one seen in Spain. An extra year tick and one for my photo big year 2017!

@xelasI'm waiting on the hare then I'll upload another 40-50

OK, OK, I am working hard on our last 2 days, but I can tell you right now that you will not need to post all of your extra 40-50 to beat the hare ;).

A lovely shot of the Azure winged magpie to finish the 2017 thread. And a great achievement in terms of quality as well as quantity.
