When I was looking for the kingfisher I discovered a grey heron that was upstream.
A small group of seven lesser black headed gulls was over a lock on Manzanares river.
The first from the left looked like a lesser black headed in first winter. The others were adults in winter plumage black-headed.

An Egret was in the leaving of a drain, just ahead of them on the right bank of the river. Sometimes she went to a tree to the left of...

New project with Living Nature

Posted Wednesday 25th November 2015 at 20:19 by dancho_hristov
With the coming winter months I will be starting a new project with the tour operator company of the BirdLife Partner in Bulgaria called Living Nature.
I am hired to set up and test new photography hides for Imperial Eagle, Golden Eagle and Vultures. Already have some pictures of Vultures and Eagle from the area so I hope I will be able to complete my tasks successfully.

On Monday November 2 at nine and a half I left from Madrid Río Park end to Parque Lineal del Manzanares, its continuation. I saw two Black Redstarts fluttered beside the river, a magpie and a string of cormorants on lampposts of the M30 motorway.
At the end of Madrid Rio, the river again becomes a river, not an ornamental channel: the river has banks again and river banks mean herons, as the first two grey heron I saw.
Some starlings were on a small...

When we were arriving to our hotel at Santa Elena, a small group of azure magpies permitted to be photographed. It was a lucky thing too. Usually I only can photograph them far away.
The distribution of azure magpies is curious. The main population was in east Asia: from China, Japan and Korea to Baikal Lake in Siberia, and a little group was in the other extreme of Eurasia eigth thousand kilometers away, a fifth of the world distance without existing...

In early October I went to the Natural Park of Despeñaperros. The view on the trail of the Barranco de Valdeazores were spectacular.
It allows to observe the grandeur of this deep cut in Sierra Morena. It is the main pass between the center of Spain Andalusia.
The summit has golden and imperial eagles, but only griffont vultures flew near my camera.
September rains were scarce, so mushrooms were also scarcde in October. We saw some Macrolepiota...
