  • Mistle Thrush
    Found in open woodlands and cultivated land all over europe and much of asia, the mistle thrush is similar in appearance to the song thrush.  However this bird is larger than the song thrush, and has neat round spots as opposed to the well-known heart-shaped spots of the song thrush.  The breast is also much less buff.  The song is a simpler version of the blackbird song, and the alarm call similar to rapid gunfire.

    The rock pipit is a large stocky pipit, larger than a meadow pipit and smaller than a starling. It is streaky olive-brown above and dirty white underneath with dark streaking. It breeds around the coast where there are rocky beaches, and most of the birds that breed in the UK are residents.

  • Eurasian Coots
    All-black and larger than its cousin, the moorhen, it has a distinctive white beak and 'shield' above the beak which earns it the title 'bald'. Its feet have distinctive lobed flaps of skin on the toes, which act instead of webs when swimming. It patters noisily over the water before taking off and can be very aggressive towards others.

    The sanderling is a small, plump, energetic wading bird. It has a short straight black bill and medium length black legs. It is pale grey above and white underneath, and there is a black mark at its shoulder where the folded wing meets the body. It does not breed in the UK, but is a winter visitor and passage migrant in spring and autumn, journeying to and from their high Arctic breeding grounds.

  • Curlew
    The Eurasian Curlew is the largest of all the waders in its range, at 50-57cm in height with a generous 1 meter wingspan.  What makes this bird especially unique to Britain is that itís one of the only places in Europe where it does not migrate, staying year round.  In the winter they tend to gather in good-sized groups, though very wary of any disturbances. <br/><br/> The only similar bird in its range is the Whimbrel, which is generally a smaller bird with a shorter, more downturned bill compared to the smooth downward curve of the curlew.<br/><br/> This bird is mainly greyish brown, white on the back, and a very long curved bill.
