Bird of the Week Challenge: 11th of April - family trio

Hi all

 

Firstly apologies, I know the site issues are still ongoing. Web support are trying to get it fixed. We think it is sorted and then it happens again! 

Lets get another challenge up and running though. A big thank you to Sue for this one! Lets see, either in a single photo, or in multiple photos - the adult male, female and a young/juvenile bird.

 

Sue also kept track of our epic challenge from 2 weeks ago. She counted 558 species - these included some overseas birds as well. Thanks Sue!

 

Cheers
Holly

That third shot of the youngster is very sharp.

Adult common white terns look alike.

The juvenile has a brownish-grey back with grey on the neck and a black mark behind the eye.
