My visit to the Wirral was very nice and there are always good birds around, but I never neglect the more common species on show that can often get overlooked. These were seen in a mixture of places such as marsh and coast. Here are just a few of them.
Common Redshank in flight.
You are such a skilled photographer you can even make the common crow look majesticReplyDelete
Great photos, like the snipe.ReplyDelete
Super flight shot of the crow- great collection of photos.ReplyDelete
Beautiful, absolutely beautiful photos of such a wonderful array of different birds. All are great, I especially like the 'in flight' and the perfect camouflage of the snipe.ReplyDelete
The redshanks have a wonderful pattern on their backs and wings! You miss things like that when you see a bird on the ground.ReplyDelete
Love the first flight shot. And one of my favorite birds is the Snipe.. Awesome photos and sightings.. Have a happy new week!ReplyDelete
Love the action shots ~ yet all your 'feather friends' photos are excellent!ReplyDelete
Happy Week to you.

Your more common birds are definitely not all common around the world. I would really like to see a Redshank! and I think the Snipe is not the one we see out here either - but not sure as I seldom see any at all. All great photos.ReplyDelete
Fab captures :-)ReplyDelete
Nice series. Your bird pix are always wonderful~ReplyDelete

Beautiful shots, even more so because they are hard to get.ReplyDelete
It's when you don't see any common birds that you know a place is in trouble - rarities are nice, but often just lost!ReplyDelete

Beautiful birds, especially the coot.ReplyDelete
Recently I have become more aware of the common species in my area and remind myself they are NOT COMMON everywhere. :))ReplyDelete
they're all beautiful. love the flock in flight and the flight shot of the crow, too!ReplyDelete
Love all the shots however in my neck of the woods (Northern Ireland),the Carrion Crow is not common.ReplyDelete
Great birds all of them. I really like the snipe.ReplyDelete
Oh, nothing common about these photos though, they are grand!ReplyDelete
Uncommonly good photos!ReplyDelete
nothing wrong with common :) Usually they are not common everywhere. :) Great selection.ReplyDelete
