The day I went to see the swan in river Manzanares in Monte de el Pardo (last week post), I obviously saw more birds. The most interesting was three black-crowned night herons. Upon arrival I saw some mallards in eclipse. I counted fourteen invasive Florida turtles. A small group of goldfinches fluttered looking for herb seeds

After the train bridge I saw the swan that I was looking for and It was the subject of the post of the previous week....

Critically Endangered waders.

Posted Tuesday 21st July 2015 at 22:20 by Rick and Elis
The list of Critically Endangered waders makes grim reading; Black Stilt, Jerdon's Courser, Sociable Lapwing, Javan Lapwing, St Helena's Plover, Eskimo Curlew, Slender-billed Curlew and Spoon-billed Sandpiper.

Of these Jerdon's Courser, Javan Lapwing, Eskimo Curlew and Slender-billed Curlew are almost certainly already extinct.

July 3rd I was going by train across Monte de El Pardo. It is and ancient hunting state of the King in Madrid. When I was crossing River Manzanares I saw the unmistakable figure of a swan. A week later I was walking to the place to see if I could see it again, what happened and allow me to present these photos. I left the car in the parking of the recreational area and I headed upriver, 50 meters after passing under the railway bridge this male swan was on the river.....

Upon arrival to the river under the bridge there were a lot of fiches. Under a heat of 40C carps approached to the surface of the river. Two turtles were taking a sunbathing. Some orioles and some fugitive long-tailed tit. A shrike was on a branch looking to the field beside the river.

Black-crowned night herons flew up from a branches of the river. And a few hundred meters up the river I saw one of them.I had been four days in the last two month trying...
