Shame

I remember once writing something along the lines of there being nothing quite like a blog to make your ignorance glaring and public. It is as true today as it ever was.


The ex-Merlin


Much better views today, including the one in that unmistakable top picture. It's a Kestrel. It's still rather cool, but it's a Kestrel.

Glad I didn't post it on birdforum or anything. How embarrasing would that be?

  1. Almost as embarrasing as if londonbirders had also got hold of it...?

  2. At least you have the dignity to retract. Some would have dug their heels in, kicking and screaming regardless...

  3. I liek the Kestrel! It's the most exciting bird I've seen at the tower all year, and a picture of a Kestrel eating a worm justifies the purchase of my camera all by itself.

    Lesson learned. It happens to us all.
