Pittswood Bird Gallery

On this page are the photographs that I have managed to take of the birds found on my patch, not all of the 141 species recorded have been caught on Camera and some of them are just record shots, ( pretty woeful at that!) taken as the chance arose, so they are of varying quality! I have added both sexes and the Immature of the species where available, the species appear in alphabetical order  :-)

Hi Warren, Some absolute stunners in there, that male Starling, I cant see how that photo could be bettered! Proper magazine quality and better there.

Can I ask why many are labelled as immatures? All of the passerines are actually juveniles. Until they lose that first plumage they are juvs. Most turn straight into adult plumage though some are first winters such as Blackbirds for example.

Your Greenfinch labelled female is actually a juvenile male, tail shape and wing contrast ages it, then the amount of yellow in the wings and tail makes it a male.

The only other comment is are you sure about the Lesser black backed Gull? It looks GBBG to me....

Great stuff, what a piece of patch work, keep at it!

Was the kingfisher shot from Willow Hide at Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve ?
