While here are many “Common” birds your photos are far from being common, they are mostly excellent. A few EBC are always welcomed.

A very good collection with a very yellow yellow wagtail.

Sadly your "Dunlin" is actually a Grey Plover coming into breeding condition.

However, all is not lost as this may be your Dunlin.

Some excellent birds in that collection. Can I ask which part of Shropshire was the water ? I used to visit Venus pools just south of Shrewsbury when my Mum was still alive but sadly she has now gone and it's too far for a day out.

Impressive additons indeed! I particularly like the Stock Dove. Very shy here, I´ve never been able to get that close to one.

I like "the more you look the more you see" photos, often very true with groups of shorebirds. You've got a  lot of variety in this collection, must be great getting out and about again

@Dave Williams- my parents love Venus Pools but sadly it's been closed for seemingly a year now with the Covid restrictions. Quite frustrating. This location is a small reserve with a single hide called Polemere Nature Reserve.

@Galana - thanks for checking but I reckon it's a Dunlin. The size difference is quite stark. I'm also not referring to the birds in the background but these little guys hiding in the foreground of the photo.

Finally I managed back out the house and the country with the camera.

 

First a few duplicates from my garden and Portugal

Ooops. Hiding in plain sight. As you surmise my eye was on the big guy in the group. I actually 'went back' to check and see the two Dunlin in both photos now. No Emoji for head hanging in shame.B) I will use this one for needing a new pair of specs.

@Galana- no need for head hanging. I need someone to double check half of my IDs - team work makes the dream work :D
