The poisoning of the Rio Doce, Brazil.

Posted Sunday 6th December 2015 at 15:31 by Rick and Elis
We are amazed and rather disappointed that this huge ecological disaster, probably the worst in Brazil's history, has not been given more media coverage outside Brazil except perhaps for articles about the financial cost to the companies involved, how much it will cost to put it right and who will pay what. There is much talk of billion dollar lawsuits where the lawyers will get rich and money will be paid over to a government which is under fire for alleged misappropriation of funds from many quarters....

A couple of females or young chaffinches....

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 21:19 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.
