Green Sand's Big Day- St Abb's Head NNR, Berwickshire

Posted Wednesday 28th May 2014 at 14:19 by Green Sandpiper
Its all the puffins' fault....

I hate boats, they go on water, the deep bits that are above my head, and make it likely that i'll drown. I try to avoid them, they're unnatural. Therefore, the usual methods of ticking puffins in the east coast (take a boat trip to one of yon small islands) are closed off.

After my successful big day out at Fowlsheugh, my latest Big Day Out was a couple of weeks ago, and I chanced my arm for puffins again. I headed East again,...

More Little Curlew moves.

Posted Tuesday 27th May 2014 at 16:24 by Rick and Elis
Little Curlew 131947 (BB) is on the move again. After just a short stay in the Putian area, it has moved 570 km north east. It has transmitted today south of Shanghai and Hangzhou Bay.

Visit to Slimbridge.

Posted Friday 23rd May 2014 at 12:17 by Rick and Elis
On our recent visit to the WWT Slimbridge Wetlands Centre we discovered that with the gift aid added to our total, Wader Quest, through the support of many wonderful people, raised £3,526.06 for the WWT Spoon-billed Sandpiper captive breeding programme. Without wishing to sound smug, we find ourselves very pleased with this achievement and felt that the project was been a success.http://www.waderquest.org/2014/05/vi...limbridge.html

The first May weekend beginning I went to Majaelrayo in Sierra Norte in the province of Guadalajara. It's almost 1200 m altitude at the foot of Ocejón peak, with 2050 meters.
