I went out from Ayllón towards River Lobos Canyon to finish the short trip of Labour day.

On the way I saw a lot of chaffinches.Males seem a little bolder, however, females were not so exposed on the ground in my presence and they were more in the branches while I was taking the photos. I also saw some long-tailed tit

How to Choose a Birding Tour (Part three of three)

Posted Thursday 21st May 2015 at 11:01 by Rockjumperbirdingtours
Whilst discussing difficult tours, we do advise our tour participants to do the toughest tours first. One is more likely to enjoy tours that are physically demanding or require rugged travelling and camping when you have higher physical fitness and mobility levels. We consider Cameroon, Papua New Guinea, Madagascar and Angola as some of these countries that potential tour participants should consider doing sooner rather than later in the birding careers.

Different Class

Posted Sunday 17th May 2015 at 23:22 by Green Sandpiper
I've always had a naive and optimistic/ simplistic view of birders and birding, probably because I operate at a level far below any politics or in-fighting. To me, birding is the great leveller, a passion or activity that unites people across social class- where the wealthy but inexperienced birders will defer to impoverished but expert birder whom they would ordinarily seldom com into contact with.
