More Little Curlew moves.

Posted Tuesday 27th May 2014 at 15:24 by Rick and Elis
Little Curlew 131947 (BB) is on the move again. After just a short stay in the Putian area, it has moved 570 km north east. It has transmitted today south of Shanghai and Hangzhou Bay. It is not clear at the moment if the bird has stopped or is continuing on. http://www.waderquest.org/2014/05/mo...lew-moves.html

Visit to Slimbridge.

Posted Friday 23rd May 2014 at 11:17 by Rick and Elis
On our recent visit to the WWT Slimbridge Wetlands Centre we discovered that with the gift aid added to our total, Wader Quest, through the support of many wonderful people, raised £3,526.06 for the WWT Spoon-billed Sandpiper captive breeding programme. Without wishing to sound smug, we find ourselves very pleased with this achievement and felt that the project was been a success.http://www.waderquest.org/2014/05/vi...limbridge.html

The first May weekend beginning I went to Majaelrayo in Sierra Norte in the province of Guadalajara. It's almost 1200 m altitude at the foot of Ocejón peak, with 2050 meters.

The last two weeks we watched the coastal waders preparation to migrate to the tundra. This week we are going to do the opposite: to greet the newcomers. Swallows, storks, bee-eaters and swifts have arrived.

Over the bridge to Canvey

Posted Wednesday 14th May 2014 at 09:02 by vangerover
I had the time to do a few hours birding so where to go? High tide was around noon so with one eye on the pager, I popped over to Canvey Point to get a bit more sea watching experience. Nothing more than gulls fighting for scraps from a Leigh trawler but as the tide rose, I saw Wheatear, Ringed Plover, Dunlin an Common Tern.
As the tide fell, I went for lunch in my favourite Canvey cafe and then thought I'd dodge the rain over at West Canvey Marshes. Lots of warblers and finches, a lone Avocet...
