So then, let's go straight into Challenge 45, again a wader challenge. This one, I would suggest is a fair bit harder than the previous one but you've proved that you can work it out, so have fun with this one.

Bird 1

Bird 2

Bird 3

Bird 4

Bird 5

Bird 6

Bird 7

Thanks very much, Deefstes, for the trouble you have taken to encourage novices like me to pay more attention to waders. :thumbs_up: :clap:

As you say, it is the attention to detail that is required..... but after a time I start to have my doubts over my choice :? :wall: . Must be my age :lol: Little and often will have to be my way forward. :hmz:

This challenge is just evil :twisted: :wink:

I'm still trying to figure it out...put I'm afraid I'll fail this one miserably.

Can I ask a question? Can the same bird be twice or more in the same challenge?

I suppose it would only be fair to answer this one :D Yes, a species can occur more than once in this challenge :wink:

I can only hope we will find time for this challenge in between all our painting of the house! :whistle:

Before I forget, the next challenge, #46/2013, will be posted by Wildtuinman on Friday, 22 November 2014! :thumbs_up:

Not sure if I ever thanked you for all the effort you obviously put into this forum, hilda, but it runs very smoothly and is always a pleasure to visit.

Thank you most sincerely.
