I found this heron just after parking, beside the rocks behind the church of Maño. Then it got scared and he went to the rocks of the Point of the Castriños.
Two yellow-legged gulls fished in front of me.
The beach was full of shellfish workers, making it difficult to observe other birds that were not adventurous seagulls.
A cormorant swam a little further and there were two in a musselfarming plattform.
A crow and a gul made a great fuss....

Spotted Nutcracker photography in Bulgaria

Posted Monday 2nd February 2015 at 15:31 by dancho_hristov
Photographing Spotted Nutcrackers is meant to be fairly easy. However we don't see many pictures of these lovely birds.
I just returned from a trip to a place not far from where I live. My aim was to take pictures of Spotted Nutcrackers.

I have been photographing Nutcrackers in Bulgaria before but this time I wanted to do something different.
Birds were so close that I decided to take a wide angle pictures of Spotted Nutcrackers.

Here is what I managed...

I wake up and saw one of the couple of peregrine hawks on the tower. He flew out and come in later. He went out again, and the tower began to be owned by starlings and sparrows.

I went to the mouth of the river Pedras. Two herons were by the sea, far away during low tide. The mouth of the river was full of yellow-legged gulls. Half a dozen of cormorant were by the sea. Four domestics goose of a nearby farm walk between them. Beside the wellog-legged gulls,...

Timing Is Everything- The Butterfly Effect

Posted Friday 30th January 2015 at 01:42 by Green Sandpiper
Its probably true to say that my plans- my birding plans at least- frequently fail, and fail spectacularly. From trying to head East to Musselburgh and ending up on the Clyde Estuary in the West, to planning big days out, and running on average 3 hours late due to liking a long- lie in in the morning, whenever I make out an itenary, then vow to keep it, the birding gods ensure that it will all go horribly wrong.
