Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 17th March, 2010)
Thanks for sharing this lovely photo,
I've never seen one of these, but now I'll be able to recognise one if it should turn up.
That's brilliant photography Dave.
Thanks for the photo Dave, I too have never seen one or maybe I could have seen one from a distance and just assumed it was a sparrow.
I thought it was a sparrow! Fantastic photo again Dave.
Enjoying your contributions Dave.I had some good shots of Reed Buntings at Martin Meer last week,beautiful birds.Cheers.
You certainly know how to photograph birds Dave , yet another good picture, well done
perffect capture dave led!
Brilliant again Dave, your right Catherine, it looks very much like a sparrow, I think they are part of the Bunting family if I'm not mistaken? The reed bunting(emberiza schoeniclus) is widespread near water in Britain, it has a black head and throat and chestnut-brown on its wings and rear, white nape to form a broad collar. lovely bird. Places like Pennington Flash, has a lot to offer.
