    Default Hello Happy New Year!

    Hi all! I am new to your site so I will start by wishing you all a very happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas.
    I have recently renewed my interest in photography and one of the more interesting elements of our local wildlife comprise birds! I have taken a number of pictures and can generally identify my subjects but I wondered if I could ask for help with this??
    We found this recently deceased bird but I do not know what it was. It may have lost its tail feathers as we found a pile of feathers not far from the bird.
    I think it was young.

    I hasten to add that all my other subjects are alive and pecking, at least they were at the time of my sighting!

    Hello Philip, and welcome to the forum.

    Your deceased bird is a Moorhen (Gallinula chloropus).

    Yes welcome to the Forum. Sad to see the dead Moorhen but look forward to seeing more of your images.

    Thanks again to Colin for the quick ID, I feel a bit silly now I know what it was, it seems more obvious now!!
