I walked with my family in Guadarrama mountains beside Madrid. I could use it as an example of the variations of animals according to the heights and vegetation. If my photos from the Rias Baixas coast at 0 meters above sea level have a particular wildlife, ponds in the plain in the river have another at 500 meters, I expected another 1,400 meters above sea level and in the pine forests of Navalmedio stream coming down Navacerrada Pass.

From Russia with love

Posted Sunday 9th November 2014 at 20:17 by efrs
Cut a long story short I googled my old Zenit camera, a 12XP. Something I had used once back in the 90s and since either lost or thrown away. It was a tank but did see me well through my walking trips through Europe back in the day. I then came across something that caught my eye. A Zenit Photosniper (Or Fotosnaiper). It just screamed 'boys toys' to me. I had to have one. Its an interesting story if you care to look into it. Anyway a few trawls through ebay and within a week I had one. An FS-3 version...

Another year I looked for flamingos unsuccessfully. They are a little group of juvenile birds that have appeared in the last two years in the fall, but they are elusive from me. I was on the exact date were they were seem last year but even so I was not successful, but it is obvious that going in the walk with family I wasn´t the more extreme birder for look for in all river bends.
Anyway I saw a large number of coots as usual, but fewer ducks than last year,...

Habitat loss and waders; the intertidal zone.

Posted Wednesday 5th November 2014 at 20:01 by Rick and Elis
There is a great variety of waders species and families, and these birds have adapted to an equally impressive diversity of natural habitats to eke out a living for themselves. Sadly though, without exception every one of these habitats is under threat from the actions, whether direct or indirect, of the human race. http://www.waderquest.org/2014/11/ha...idal-zone.html

Miralrío is other pond in the Southeast Madrid Regional Park. As all of the ponds in this park is the result of flooding and recovery os sand pits for building. This one is very buried in the field and less walkable than other ponds in the area, which together with its location next to an industrial estate, makes it more lonely. Which is positive for the tranquility of birds. In fact there is a place choosen for sleeping for the herons. The first thing I saw was a couple...
