Green Sandpiper's Mid- Year Report 2014

Posted Friday 8th August 2014 at 23:57 by Green Sandpiper
a bit later with this than expected, but as its the quiet season for birds, now's as good a time as any.

I set out this year to have a 'good year', not a big year as such, with lots of chasing about the country twitching, but expanding my horizons, working on lifer ticks of ordinary species, immersing myself in birdlife, really, seeking the best of both worlds.

So far, i'd say that the year has been a roaring success. 11 lifers, plus a dozen or so unexpected year ticks...

In the breakwater of Aguiño harbour you could see a group of black-headed gulls, but the left one looked more like a mediterranean Gull. A young ringed plover walked on the beach and another one was on the breakwater. Flocks of Yellow-legged gull occupied the bottom of the breakwater, but in a quick look I did not see great black-backed gulls like in the winter. I saw this ringed cormorant on a distant rock. Maybe G?8 white plastic ring on the left leg. The metal one...

Mountain Plover nest conservation on private crop fields.

Posted Wednesday 6th August 2014 at 22:54 by Rick and Elis
The Mountain Plover, often known as “Prairie Ghost”, is a small ground nesting bird living in the short-grass prairie ecoregion of Rocky Mountain West of North America.

Since the 1920’s, native short-grass prairie habitat has diminished as much as 52% due to conversion of these grasslands to crop land agriculture, diminished fire frequency, destruction of prairie dog towns and decline of native grazers.http://www.waderquest.org/2014/08/gu...over-nest.html

The Atlantic Ocean shoreline outside Arousa Stuary extends north from Aguiño. In this place begins Corrubedo Natural Park. Wagtails are usual on beach Ladeira beside Corrubedo Village, both black and grey. I saw some cormorant on the rocks far away. Too far away for see if they are cormorants or shags. Magpies were on the roofs of the houses beside de beach. Sparrows look for food in the beach. In the distance we saw what I think were two greenshanks and a bar-tailed...

Little Curlew tracking project update.

Posted Wednesday 30th July 2014 at 23:04 by Rick and Elis
It has been a bit over a month since the last Little Curlew update and we have some news to report.

The most interesting thing that has happened since the last update is that LC 131943 has kept moving north. It arrived on the coast of China between 19th of June and 24th of June landing between Hong Kong and Shantou. On the 28th of June it was on an island 60 km east of Fuqing, in the Putian region (where 131945 and 131947 also stopped on migration).
From here, it moved to...
