When the summer arrived I went to Ría de Arousa as usual. I was looking grey herons and egret in the beach of Boiro in Pozo Negro, and in Pobra in Raposiños. Eight grey herons and three egrets in total.

Some ducklings and their mother flew out too.
They were common pochards.

Some black kites are always seen in the pond, easier to photograph if they perched on a branch.
In the first sighting hut I saw a black-necked grebe. Really it was part of a couple in mate.
The great crested grebe are the king of the pond.
Two coots with two chicks. Although each one seemed concerned only for one chick.

After the train bridge I saw the swan that I was looking for and It was the subject of the post of the previous week....

Critically Endangered waders.

Posted Tuesday 21st July 2015 at 22:20 by Rick and Elis
The list of Critically Endangered waders makes grim reading; Black Stilt, Jerdon's Courser, Sociable Lapwing, Javan Lapwing, St Helena's Plover, Eskimo Curlew, Slender-billed Curlew and Spoon-billed Sandpiper.

Of these Jerdon's Courser, Javan Lapwing, Eskimo Curlew and Slender-billed Curlew are almost certainly already extinct.
