Oh yes Eric, definitely a Black Tailed Godwit, It appears the colouring on 'my' one is an Adult in Winter plumage? Fascinating eh? Thanks for putting right, I appreciate it.

On question: I took this at Elmley today

Thanks for the replys fellas, but to be honest, the illustrations in my books still don't look like this bird, could it be a juvenile? One says, the Bar-tailed Godwit has 'short legs', while the Black-tailed is a 'buff' colour, and none of them mention a pinkish bill, it was a solitary bird.

Black-tailed Godwit I would say. Bill straighter and longer than Bar-Tailed and not curved upwards. Eric.

It's a tricky one isn't it? I'll say what I was thinking, To me the undersides of song thrushes are usually rather whiteish, whereas this chap, has spots right the way down, he didn't move all the time I was there, he was very close. Thanks for the interest everyone. Colin

On question: I thought this one was a Mistle

'Arrowhead' spots = Song Thrush; roundish spots = Mistle Thrush.
I enlarged your image and I think the former is more likely.

Well captured.

Thanks Avocet, I took it at Leeds castle in Kent, small wooded area, beside a busy path! it was 15 feet up on the branch, not at all nervous! In the photo it seems very comfy!

I would say Mistle. Difficult without knowing size, posture, location, call.

Found out from the Blacktoft blog and an almost identical photo on their Flickr page. It is a water pipit - although rare, they have 2 on the reserve at the moment.

On question: Plover - grey or golden?
