We asked: what’s the bo­gey bird that still eludes you?

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your View -

Osprey. I live in Dorset and still haven’t seen one. Clare Slade

It’s a toss up be­tween Gur­ney’s Pitta & Pied Fly­catcher. Mark Skin­ner

Nutcracker. Tried and failed sev­eral times to see it in Europe. Ian Par­sons

Ptarmi­gan. Three trips to the High­lands in the last three years, still haven’t seen them. @not­sotweets

This year, Black Red­start and Lesser Whitethroat to name but two. In gen­eral, Po­ma­rine Skua... John Row­land

It was Quail, but I fi­nally got to see one two years ago, and an­other this year (UK only). @Bir­duder344

I would love to spot a Hoopoe. @Neil­neil01

Green Wood­pecker. Can’t count the one that ex­pired af­ter hit­ting the win­dow of a house in Nor­way! @cashand­car­rots

Af­ter last year’s visit to West­ern Isles and not see­ing the Black-billed Cuckoo I’d have to say that one now! Hope­fully get one on Scilly in Oc­to­ber! Ian Ben­nell
