    Default Good birding day bad photos

    P1100753.jpgP1100785.jpgP1100796.jpgP1100821.jpgP1100828.jpg

    Today was a good day for me I saw lots of new birds in our garden in France or in the adjoining fields. Its a pity my photographs were not so good. Besides the attached pictures I also saw a Blackcap (Which I managed a pretty poor photo of). Yesterday I saw my first Cuckoo but never got a photograph.

    The first photo I think is either a Marsh Tit or Willow Tit not sure.
    2nd photo no idea had trouble finding the bird at the top of a Oak tree.
    3rd Greenfinch not a good picture
    4th collection of Greenfinch's
    5th flying Grey Heron.

    Any help with identification appreciated, thanks.
    Well I seem to have uploaded the wrong picture the Heron is missing and another unknown bird has been inserted and they are in the wrong order, sorry.

    I think 3 is a Corn Bunting.
    Do you want to see the Birds of the Alentejo region in Portugal?

    For more information:

    You can stay at our holiday cottages at Monte Horizonte and we can show you the birds.
