Absolutely impressed that 3 mites have already got this bird correct :clap: :clap: I will admit that I would never have got it correct if I had not seen it myself :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

Here is the next part of the clue

Thanks to all for taking part in this teaser :clap: :thumbs_up: Amazed that some of you got it right first time around :clap: :clap:

Seeing this baby Skimmer was such a special experience - it must have just hatched a day or so before as the adult was still messing around with the egg shell. Never seen a chick that looks so different to the adult :D

Well it looks like this one was too easy :hmz: with quite a few of you getting it correct first time around :clap: :clap: Well done :thumbs_up:

I have a sneaky suspicion that Wildtuinman may have used this chick in an ID challenge a while ago because we were birding together when saw this little family near Parys :hmz: :D
