Day 3 - Saturday 23rd May 2015

We arose bright and early the next morning ready for our first day at a new location – Prospect Park in Brooklyn. Taking the tube and arriving at around half 8, it was obvious that despite not being there at the crack of dawn, the day would provide a wealth of birds – there had evidently been a huge fall in the night. Taking just a few steps down the path, I immediately heard a call that was now engraved in my memory – the high pitched chiming trill...

I went in the morning from Riumar to L'Encanysada lagoon, the largest in Ebro Delta. Some lapwings were in the rice paddies. Later some cattle egret were near of my car.
Dozens of herons were in another paddy, great white egrets, grey herons, little egrets and gulls.
One of the great white egrets and a cattle egret stood near me.
And I finally arrived to L'Encanyssada lagoon.

New York Trip Report - Day 2 (Central Park)

Posted Monday 14th December 2015 at 21:47 by Wood Nymph
Day 2 - Friday 22nd May 2015

With our jet lagged internal clocks still operating 5 hours ahead in UK time, we were able to get out bright and early the next morning ready for a dawn start on what was our second day in the Big Apple. With news that my most sought after species (Blackburnian Warbler) had just been spotted at a part of Central Park called Cherry Hill, we rushed out to try and catch up with what could potentially be a difficult warbler to add to our trip list.

A final (?) flick of the tail for Wader Conservation World Watch and a word about Joh

Posted Monday 14th December 2015 at 19:19 by Rick and Elis
I am reading the final chapters of a book by Isabella Tree about John Gould and rather feel that the idea of bringing people together around the world to one end is somewhat in the spirit of what he achieved. http://www.waderquest.org/2015/12/a-...for-wader.html

On December 5th I got to Ebro delta. When I arrived with the car to Deltebre town I saw some cattle egret.
I took the road to the beach of La Marquesa. This great egret stood in the crowd of herons. I had long not seen one of them.
I found a little later a common sandpiper in a irrigation ditch.
Grey herons and little egrets were in every place.
When I arrived Els Bascos in a rice paddy to the left I could see a group of three glossy ibis....
