Days Out- Big and Small

Posted Sunday 27th April 2014 at 23:00 by Green Sandpiper
My second big day out of the year saw me again try to double up site visits. Now, as a farmboy who's a bit scared of the seaside, and who's a big bit scared of heights, a trip to the seacliffs at RSPB Fowlsheugh was an odd choice. However, this offered me the chance for razorbill, guilemmot, and even puffin. It was also my first visit to what we know as a 'seabird city' and i had (high) hopes of a birding spectacle, regardless of the targets.

Its amazing, how my inner terror...

Little Curlew monitoring project in Northern Australia.

Posted Sunday 27th April 2014 at 19:48 by Rick and Elis

While the east is open to the forest of Casa de Campo through the natural corridor of the Forest Park of Somosaguas; the west side is surrounded by developments. This involves less presence and variety of wildlife. However it is still interesting ride if only to verify this phenomenon.

Cottage list update.

Posted Wednesday 23rd April 2014 at 18:53 by Rick and Elis
The garden list has grown somewhat since Wader Quest gave me a breather and therefore the chance to do a blog here, we now boast 37 species.
On of the most bizarre birds we have seen has been a pair of Red-legged Partridges. Now it wouldn't have been that unusual if we were to report we saw them from the cottage window overlooking the fields, but these birds were in our garden, which has got a dirty great brick wall all around it! They ended up scuttling up the path between the houses and...
