Rufous-chested Dotterel

Posted Monday 10th March 2014 at 11:50 by Rick and Elis
While we were still living in Brazil on the 27th June 2011, Elis and I, with a visiting birder from the USA, David Bates, went to do some birding at the small tidal marsh in front of the town of Parati in Rio de Janeiro. There wasn't much about and we were getting ready to leave when Elis saw what at first we thought was an American Golden Plover at a fair distance on the grassy area. When I looked at the bird thrugh my bins I was stunned to see that it was a Rufous-chested Dotterel...

Good looking gulls.

I don't know about you, but I'm not one of those that finds gulls fascinating, unlike with waders I can't sit and sift through a flock and study the minutiae of plumage details. Don't misunderstand me though, I find them really attractive and on our travels around the world we have seen some real corkers...

African Wattled Lapwing

Posted Friday 7th March 2014 at 13:01 by Rick and Elis
What we refer to as African Wattled Lapwing is sometimes called Senegal Wattled Lapwing or by others simply Wattled Lapwing and it is subdivided into three races. The nominate race Vanellus senegallus senegallus occurs from Senegal and The Gambia on the Atlantic coast of west Africa, east to Sudan, Zaire and northern Uganda. The second, V. s. major occurs just in Ethiopia and Eritrea...

I took a walk with my family and friends in La Casa de Campo in January. I could contemplate this squirrel . He had come running across the ground before climbing the pine. Other day I went to El Pardo forest. I saw the first mate of the serins of this year.

World Wildlife Day

Posted Tuesday 4th March 2014 at 10:02 by Rick and Elis
World Wildlife Day
We celebrate and congratulate everyone in the big wide world out there that is working, or has worked, to conserve and preserve our glorious planet and its incredible wildlife. If you have volunteered your time, raised money for a project or charity, donated your hard earned cash (especially when you can ill afford it), made a career out of conservation rather than heading where the money is, then this is a day for you to sit back, kick off your shoes and allow us to thank...
