Seawatch­ing is no easy task – chal­lenge your­self here and fol­low our top tips

THERE ARE MANY chal­lenges in bird­watch­ing. You pays your money and takes your pick about which of them you choose to em­brace. Some are bit­ten by ar­guably the tough­est bug of all, though: seawatch­ing. It is all about the thrill of star­ing out to sea, pick­ing out birds whizzing by in strong winds and nam­ing them, count­ing them and en­joy­ing them. It can pro­duce some of the rarest birds you will ever see, and it can be sim­ply mag­nif­i­cent. But no­body says it is go­ing to be easy. How­ever, for the pur­poses of this month’s ID Chal­lenge, we have sim­pli­fied the whole busi­ness by ask­ing you to iden­tify birds frozen in mo­tion by the power of mod­ern pho­tog­ra­phy. There are only six to name. Name them, turn for the so­lu­tions and turn again for more tips and ad­vice for iden­ti­fy­ing birds while seawatch­ing.
