LBJ's, or little brown jobs, is birdwatching slang for those boring little birds that usually are brown or beige such as House Sparrows and don't warrant a second glance once they are on your list. But these birds deserve a closer look as they often have a subtle beauty that repays close scrutiny. I came across two such species on a recent trip to photograph the Snow Buntings at Kinmel bay again. I hope the following photos do justice to the often overlooked Linnet and Meadow Pipit.

  1. Thank-you for the explanation of LBJ's.
    I am doing research on a trip to the Kalahari to a place called Witands and they mention LBJ's.
    So now I know.
