    some web pages if your planning to come to the Island, the links marked Ness or news from Tony are all in my area and so are all the pics by BAE Marr on the rarebirds page.

    Hi Mike,
    yes i'l try, i'm no expert but lucky to know one as we have an ornithologist who gives talks/guide's at the local hide, you will just miss one on the 7th which will be wildfowl & waders, a lot of my pics like the rose coloured starling,waxwing etc was through his help. I'm not sure how this msg system works on here if it's private or not so i'l try contact you with my email address and I will try get an answer to any Q's or maybe list best places to visit and nearer the time what recent sightings etc ,

    Thanks Mike for the I.D. Of the Redstart,this will be a first for me. Did not get a good look at the males,just went of the colours as they were fighting amongst them self's, must have been about 5 males spotted. That why I thought they might of been Stonechat they are quite similar.

    Hi Mike
    What fantastic Images theres plenty for an old newbie like me to learn from by studying your shots,
    I will be going to Edingbourgh in Feb 2010 and hope to take a trip along the Clyde coast rd; maybe i will see the odd bird or two on my travels.
    regards Mike

    Thanks for the question Mike, I paint any bird that takes my fancy mostly from around my home area, but I do have a fancy for exotic birds the featherd kind, Your album is great i'd love to paint one of your eagles. The best I can do in North Wales is the Peregrine but I have seen European Eagle Owl just up the road for my home.
    Thanks Martin

    Hi Mike, at the top of each section of the forum there is a button labelled 'new thread', by clicking on that it should open up a box for you to start a new thread.
    It looks as if your avatar has been removed or corrupted, you could try reloading it and if that doesn't work contact Neil Rigby and he should be able to sort it out for you

    cheers, john

    Yea it certainly doesn't do the Sea Eagle images justice, they are magnificant birds at close range
