Help for Farmland Birds

Linnet
Yellow Wagtail
Grey Wagtail
Farmland Birds, Waterbeach, 15th August 2017 © Josie Sutton
'I would like to submit some photos to be displayed on the Cambridgeshire Bird Club website. These photos of a yellow wagtail, linnet and grey wagtail were taken recently at Denny Abbey and Farmland Museum, Waterbeach. I work there and have frequently seen them on the site this summer. Previously, no one realised they were there. I would like to raise awareness of the endangered status of farmland birds through providing a source of information about it at the museum. If you have any information or advice about these birds I would be very grateful.' JS
If anyone would like to help, please e-mail me and I will pass on to Josie. ED

'This is one of a family of sparrowhawks, taken from my  garden in Cambridge. I think this is the female. Two fledglings are also around. The garden is always full of screaming.' MJ

Red-necked Phalarope

'This little critter was among the passage waders at my place just now. The images are terrible, but hopefully adequate for recognition. I make it an adult red-necked, but am not familiar enough with phalaropes to go beyond that. I've not had one at Dunkirk before, so it's a garden tick, but whether it's of wider interest (and sufficiently so to justify putting grainy photos on the website) I leave to you.'
