Day 1 - Thursday 21st May 2015

Being a destination we had both been eager to visit and with Central Park well known as a migrant hotspot during the epic spring migration, we booked 10 days in what is perhaps the most well-known city in the world – New York. Whilst this bustling hub of metropolitan life may not at first glance seem a typical birding destination, the parks attract an incredible array of species during spring and autumn migration, with over 20 species of warbler waiting...

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...
