Family: Cormorant Size: 90cm

Meadow Pipit

Location: Pagham Harbor Date: 28/03/2013
Scientific Name: Anthus pratensis Pic By: Jen
Family: Pipit Size: 14cm
ISO: 800 Gender: U
Equipment: Canon 7D/300L F4 + 1.4x Wingspan: 24cm
Description: A small, brown, streaky bird, it is the commonest songbird in upland areas and its high, piping call is a familiar sound. In flight it shows white outer tail feathers and in the breeding season it has a fluttering parachute display flight. In winter they are quite gregarious and gather in small flocks, often invisible among the vegetation, suddenly flying up with typical jerky flight. Meadow pipit numbers in the UK have been declining since the mid 1970s, resulting in this species being included on the amber list of conservation concern.

Red Knot

Location: Pagham Harbor Date: 25/03/2013
Scientific Name: Calidris canutus Pic By: Jen
Family: Wader Size: 25cm
ISO: 800 Gender: U
Equipment: Canon 7D/300L F4 + 1.4x Wingspan: 50cm
Description: The adult Red Knot has short dark legs and a medium thin dark bill. Their body is mottled gray on top with a reddish face, throat and breast. In the winter it is pale gray all over.

There are 6 subspecies of the knot, one of which is severely endangered. The American subspecies has been predicted to be extinct as early as 2010 due to overfishing of their primary food source the horseshoe crab in the Delaware Bay, a primary stopover point for this migrating bird.

This bird visits the UK shores in the winter, migrating south to Africa, and the areas surrounding Australia.
