Bird challenge: ID the bird, if right, then post yours

OK, as we have several bird togs here on e-group, I thought I'd try to kick off a new thread where we post a pic we have taken of a bird, and the person who gets the ID correct has to post a pic of a bird... et al. Doesn't have to be a brilliant shot, could be a crop of a selected area of a shot, or a nicely composed bird portrait.

Just a bit of fun, nothing serious.

I will kick it off with an easy one for ya, a shot of a bird I spotted in the tree whilst out walking with Jen earlier this fine evening. Blustery it was, but sunny nonetheless. Here it is... your starter for 10...

What is it ?

Re: Bird challenge: ID the bird, if right, then post yours

Thanks John ...I got there in the end..as you said they don't have to be brilliant images,here's a terrible one that adds to the mystery.
It was at the local reserve on Sunday evening and never stayed still,head down feeding.
Another easy one I think !
Keith

Sorry Guys Not a Dunlin or one of the Sandpipers.
I knew there was one of these in front of me and luckily I took shots of various birds BUT even though they have charts up in the hide It took some detective work to get it.

hard luck,
Keith.

Hi Keith, I'd have a guess at this being a Greenshank...? Am I close...?

Ahhh, you know I think wfk has nailed it. I'd second guess at a Sanderling too.
