The last weekend I took a walk again on Jarma riverside at Paracuellos. A baby moorhen was walking along the opposite bank of the river and soon it went into hiding when it noticed me.
Most of male mallards were in eclipse. But one male keep the winter plumage.
It seems that Valdebebas treatment plant doesn´t treat so well. The river is full of foam beside it.


And a black-crowned night hero escaped from me, but a turtle rested...

New world waders in an old world setting.

The pull of not one, but two Nearctic vagrant waders to see so close to each other on the southern shores of the UK, was too much to resist. We had managed too suppress our desire to go and look at the Greater Yellowlegs for some time, but it remained long enough in the area that when a Hudsonian Whimbrel showed up just along the coast, we were unable to resist any longer. http://www.waderquest.org/2015/06/ne...d-setting.html

Since mid-April I walked some days around Jarama river at Paracuellos, Madrid. The river was full of common pochards. Rabbits abounded on the other side of the river. They were quieted because the course of the river gave security to them.
The river has many invasive red ears florida turtles, however It is very difficult to see native turtle species. In this group there were nine. It's hard to compete for habitat and food with an invasive species that is continuously...

Madrid's Manzanares river runned through the western part of the city squeezed between the two directions of the ring highway M-30. The burial of the highway was conducted from 2004 to 2007. The birds however were fairly safe from people or dogs walled into the highway first, and the construction works later.
The recovery of the river as urban space were conducted in 2008-2011 when it was opened to the public. They were pleasant transformations for humans,...
