One you think is a Sedge Warbler - Seek says it is a Linnet. Stonechat is correct, male.

Sometimes seek struggles with familiar birds... I've had 'Bird' 'Perching Birds' 'Tortoises and Turtles' etc etc... and birds from wrong continents... Would post examples on here but my regular birding kit precludes this.

But lovely captures anyway.

Lovely photos, particularly of the Stonechat. As Pwynnej says the Sedge Warbler is a female Linnet, again a beautiful shot.

It looks like you are enjoying yourself; that last one looks like a dunlin to me.

Lovely set. The heron in flight and little egret in flight are top for me. Strange to think that not so long ago that little egret would have been an exotic rarity in the UK and now they are all over the place.

And the snipe is indeed a dunlin - beak too short for a snipe and the dark patch underneath says dunlin not snipe.
