Cheers - so we have a possible willow warbler here:
Unidentified Fledglings

any advances on that? I can hear warblers around here but I fear this is more mundane than that.

and I'm not sure with these fellas either:
Unidentified Fledglings

Any suggestions very welcome

rubbish very distant shot of one of three Turtle Doves I spent several hours chasing today, really dont like having their photo taken, spend most of the time sitting in dense cover calling from what sounds like a few feet away

tdove

only heard one briefly this spring in early May, looks like they're late back, trying again tomorrow morning.

very dull this morning but get some closer shots of one sitting up high for a change.

Love the flora shots.

Grabbed this on my way out of Scotland yesterday in Glen Etive. Think it is a Chimney Sweep Moth but happy to be corrected.

It may be my imagination but I'm sure this dirty minx is winking at me

A nod's as good as a wink...

I initially read that as some kind of muscular arm lifting the rear end up..

The greens are lovely..
