Mystery Bird September

Everyone who entered got last month’s mystery ‘bird’ correct. The only dragonfly we have with Brown Wings is the Brown Hawker. Well done if you got this one. The photo was taken of our obliging individual at Waveney River Centre on the Norfolk/Suffolk border, one of the best places I know for this species.

This month we’re back to birds proper. Given the waders are moving through on migration at the moment it seems appropriate to pitch in with a wading species for our Septembers Mystery Bird.

Take a look at the photograph below. As normal send in your entry to carl@wildlifetoursandeducation.co.uk.

May Mystery Bird Competition

When Aprils mystery bird is seen with its head up there is no question about its identification. This Shoveller was photographed at Titchwell on the Norfolk coast earlier this year. The pale blue forewing and green speculum are a dead giveaway. A more obliging pose of the same bird is below.

There were entries for Green winged Teal and Gadwall as well as Shoveller. The leaders are still Phil and Jan Thorpe with five consecutive correct answers haing acheived a ‘clean run’ since we started.

Mays Mystery bird is pictured below and it’s a hard one. Study a few photos on the internet to do a little research before entering your submission. Please submit the id by email to carl@wildlifetoursandeducation.co.uk. The rules of the competition can be found in a previous posting here. Give it a go … it doesn’t cost anything and you could easily win as successively correct answers mount up!
