Thread: Unusual Bird(s)

    Unusual Bird(s)

    SWMBO and I were recently staying with friends in Worcestershire, where they have an abundance of wild birds frequenting their garden.

    My pal told me that he had been seeing two small,white birds of late, and I was lucky enough to see one of them.

    The pictures were taken through the kitchen window, so quality is not great.

    The first pic gives an idea of the size of the bird, the kerb by which it is standing is about 100mm high.







    Not a true albino, having black eyes, I feel.

    My initial thoughts were a Wagtail, but the tail is short. The beak seems a little too light weight for a finch.

    Yes, that's a strong possibility. There are plenty of Dunnock visiting the garden.

    It's a shame that I didn't see the two of them together.It would be a rare sight.

    Are you sure there are actually two birds...... have they both been seen together at the same time?

    I did not see two together, but my pal assures me that he has, on more than one occasion.
