@Galana - a 12 year old I completely agree - a 12 week old - might be a bit trickier!   My daughter though is showing commendable interest  

@Tdgraves - you're absolutely right I need multiple levers of back-up! Thankfully in this case the images were recoverably from the re-formatted memory card - but that's an expensive way to live

Great additions from Shetland.

The first Whooper Swan photo deserves a prize :)

145. Winter Wren, Shetlands, UK 55.

 

If I was a splitter - I would argue this is sub-species - the Shetland Wren Troglodytes troglodytes zetlandicus.

That's it from Shetlands. Even though we very much didn't go there at the optimal time it still produced 9 lifers for me and the scenery alone is worth the trip. There are also one or two mammals to see.

Rainham Marshes is my local reserve but this year I have only managed the one trip  - On September 10th.

 

The reserve was as dry as I've ever seen it with almost no moisture in the marsh but still it was buzzing with big flocks of gulls, waders and some old friends

147. Herring Gull, Rainham Marshes, UK 57.

 

I've struggled over this one in terms of whether it's YLG or Herring but in this case I'm guessing Herring.

159. Eurasian Sparrowhawk, Rainham Marshes, UK 69.

 

This was incredibly frustrating! I have never been able to photograph a Sparrowhawk and one split second this juvenile settled on a post right in front of the hide but I was holding my son at the time and by the time I could get a shot off - it was going

Really like the Shetland additions, and the three Whinchats from your local turf are especially cool.
