What did the yellowhammer, the chaffinch and the goldfinch have to discuss ?

Well, I don't think I will be using birda its a shame but i am not interested in anything that only works through a phone app (one that isn't actually available yet anyway on android)as I use a camera...View More

If as expected my blog views plummet when Chirp goes (no clickable links on Birda), I will have no reason to stick around on Birda. I much prefer using the website for Chirp than the app. Trying to view pics on a phone screen - especially for trying to help with IDs is in some cases a waste of time ...View More

Sorry to hear that Steve, we will have a web version ready towards the end of spring next year. In the mean time I’d love to get you set up on our Android beta build. If you drop me a line on dom@birda.org I will sort that out for you. Cheers, Dom

Sorry to hear that as well. Haven’t been here a year yet but I’ve enjoyed your posts and the camaraderie in general here. Just managed to finish “kicking the tires” on Birda and so far I’m less than impressed.

Thank you, Event though it was a dull gray day there were more birds than i have seen there before so it was a good day.

Your Godwits are Black Tailed's, Steve. You can see the wing and tail pattern in the 2nd pic. Bar Tailed's in winter plumage are a bit more 'patterned' on the back than the more plain backed Black Taileds.

Hi Steve, I reckon your plover are Common Ringed Plover
Steve whiteraven
I have looked at another photo and cropped in , the beak is all black and i know little plovers are seen a little further up the coast at steart, Although you have more experience than me so you may be right i will try add the cropped close view.
Andrew Goodall
Hi Steve, thanks for the cropped image. Identification features to consider. Little ringed have an orbital eye ring all year but very yellow in. Summer. I always think of Little ringed head as a licquorice allsort, white then black then another white band. Common ringed has only one lower white band...View More
