Fellow birdwarchers: Can you help us identify this bird? It showed up at the beginning of September and has been hanging out on the Farm ever since. It doesn't seem to fly, runs super fast, and seems to camp out under bushes or brush at night. We haven't been able to figure it out from our field guides or internet searches. .

Here's another shot from my visit to Snettisham last week. It was a beautiful day and when the knot took off over the mudflats, they caught the light as they swirled over the oystercatchers!

@d.razzi back hope you’re enjoying my takeover. Like this mornings image this Great Egret photo was captured from my kayak. The bird was hanging out in early morning shade making my job easier to help expose for the bird and making the background nice and dark. I really liked how this image came out. Using the Kayak I have been able to get many beautiful looks at all kinds of wading birds.

Hoy he recibido la respuesta del ayuntamiento de Madrid, que agradece sinceramente la colaboración e interés en la mejora de los servicios público😠.
Esto es lo que dicen:
"En todo momento se utilizarán técnicas de captura que no causan ningún tipo de lesión en los animales y que reducen el estrés al máximo. Dichas técnicas están permitidas por la normativa vigente y cuentan con la autorización de la Consejería de Medio Ambiente de la Comunidad de Madrid."

This summer, Dr. Geoff Holroyd did a presentation about Burrowing Owls. There is an interesting article about it in the Alberta Wildlifer. Check it out: https://spark.adobe.com/page/zhCQvcSuexlNc/

A Pied Cormorant, in the Sydney Royal Botanic Gardens - may look a bit different to his peers, but still feels proud, confident (and a little bit cocky)

The perfect combination of soft sunlight and dark background can make even the most common subject look interesting 😊

I love this photo I took of a male Kingfisher. As it rained down hard (all day) he just sat there in the wind with his little feathers blowing around. Love the detail you can see in his feathers too! Such a good looking bird 😀

Say hello to the UK’s smallest bird - the goldcrest! 💛
✨
Along with the firecrest the goldcrest is around 9cm in length with a wingspan of 14cm! And they weigh in at around 6 grams! Tiny and beautiful! ✨
The team have all now returned from this years Autumnwatch and what a fantastic series it was! But just because we aren’t on your screens doesn’t mean we have disappeared! Please do stay in touch with us across our social media channels and tag @BBCSpringwatch to be featured on this page!

Thanks everyone for watching this series and getting in touch online! Roll on the rest of autumn into winter...🍁 ❄️ ✨
