Dipper (Cinclus cinclus)

This is not a first, but it is the best I've got. And I am pleased. I have plenty to show you.  I have been after the Dipper for nearly ten years, and now here it is.

Cape Teal (Anas capensis)

 It's not too cold, but there was a large amount of clouds around. And, there isn't any point taking my camera out, and me. Brrrrrrrrr. Here is a Cape Teal, photographed in the middle of September.

Magpie (Pica pica)

With its noisy chattering, black-and-white plumage and long tail, there is nothing else quite like the magpie in the UK. When seen close-up its black plumage takes on an altogether more colourful hue with a purplish-blue iridescent sheen to the wing feathers, and a green gloss to the tail. Magpies seem to be jacks of all trades - scavengers, predators and pest-destroyers, their challenging, almost arrogant attitude has won them few friends. Non-breeding birds will gather together in flocks.

Meadow Pipit (Anthus pratensis)

I went out this morning to find a Cattle Egret, didn't find one. Instead, I got a Meadow Pipit. One day I'll catch one of Egret.
