Happy New Year and January quiz picture.

Well here it is, the end of another year and the expectations for 2011...... is it just me or do others find the Year end a bit sad?

Thanks to everyone that has visited the blog over the last few months and left comments, I hope you continue to visit next year.

The quiz picture should not present many problems this month :-)  but tell me the age as well this time!



HAPPY NEW YEAR AND GOOD BIRDING IN 2011

  1. Well, as far as I'm concerned, this just goes to show that when you know the answer the question is easy but if you don't they are all difficult. I will commit myself to saying it is a very young bird but I'll hold my opinions on the species for a wee while. Is it a hirundine?

  2. I agree John. A Sand Martin?

  3. John, yes it is a Hirundine, well done can you be more specific?

    And Phil, you are correct!! My favourite bird for ringing.

  9. Well done John, join Phil at the top of the class.

    The bird was ringed in a small, but perfectly formed, colony at Roseile. Can't wait until they return next year to see if any of the 28 ringrd in 2010 have returned.
