A Dutch Dim Wallace...More string than a tramps vest.

Oh man I have just stolen this from Green Withens cos I think it needs further distribution. This bloke's photos from Holland are funnier than Honey Buzzards breeding in Northumberland!

You must check out his Sunda Whistling Thrush...and the Alpine Acc, oh and those Lathams Snipe....If you think that you are crap and they look just like Blackbird, Dunnock and Snipe, then please check out the others...

Be prepared ...click here.

Blue Chaffy indeed...

Check the primaries on that Pallid Harrier ..

Fortunately, looks like he's correct both his Lark Sparrow and Savannah Sparrow - both to Yellow-browed Bunting .... sigh.

Glad to see that most of the photos are from a few years ago - hopefully he's now got to grips with Black-headed Gull and had a re-think.

Glory be, his Chiloe Wigeon is right . . . wonder which zoo it's from ;-)

I think this site is/was a spoof - surely nobody could be so mental as to think they'd seen all those birds, including several island endemics, in Holland. Could they?

re Llama's comment.
According to a Dutch friend, its all genuine-this guy is a well known stringer.
Its entertaining though.

Well he must be genuinely mental then! Actually we've got someone like that in Leicestershire (regularly has stuff that's not even on the British list flying over his house etc), but fotunately he hasn't got a camera!
