My bird of the week has to be my first ever Mediterranean Gull that we saw at the weekend picked out of a large flock of B.H.Gulls so even more thrilling......sorry no pics as we were slowly sinking into the muddy estuary!!!

Would love to see your Rose-coloured Starling Hondaman.....hope you find it!!
im trying ,i mixed a lot of pics together trying to save room and its a nightmare finding some of them

Would take a bit of convincing about a Golden Eagle in your garden, unless it was a captive bird of course

Love all the posts and pics everyone!

Thanks for persevering in finding your Rosy Pastor Starling, honda! A great pic! It must have been a special moment to see it in your garden!

Now what's all this about a Golden Eagle? Come on please tell!
