L'Encanyissada lagoon is the largest in Delta. It is full of flamingos.
In the Delta del Ebro flamingo population is around 10,000 birds. And most are in a radio of ten kilometers from this lagoon.
And so I went from Casa de Fusta by the bike path seeing flamingos, black necked grebes, mallards, great white egret, grey herons, and some cormorants
When I arrived at the west end of the lagoon, past the drain of El Tau, a female marsh harrier shadow...

New York Trip Report - Day 4 (Doodletown & Plumb Beach)

Posted Monday 21st December 2015 at 19:51 by Wood Nymph
Day 4 - Sunday 24th May 2015

Sunday dawned with bright blue skies and sun, perfect weather for what was my most looked forward to day of our trip – Doodletown. Part of Bear Mountain State Park and situated just over an hour’s drive north of Manhattan, this fantastic area is a well-known and popular destination amongst New York birders.

Day 3 - Saturday 23rd May 2015

We arose bright and early the next morning ready for our first day at a new location – Prospect Park in Brooklyn. Taking the tube and arriving at around half 8, it was obvious that despite not being there at the crack of dawn, the day would provide a wealth of birds – there had evidently been a huge fall in the night. Taking just a few steps down the path, I immediately heard a call that was now engraved in my memory – the high pitched chiming trill...

I went in the morning from Riumar to L'Encanysada lagoon, the largest in Ebro Delta. Some lapwings were in the rice paddies. Later some cattle egret were near of my car.
Dozens of herons were in another paddy, great white egrets, grey herons, little egrets and gulls.
One of the great white egrets and a cattle egret stood near me.
And I finally arrived to L'Encanyssada lagoon.

New York Trip Report - Day 2 (Central Park)

Posted Monday 14th December 2015 at 21:47 by Wood Nymph
Day 2 - Friday 22nd May 2015

With our jet lagged internal clocks still operating 5 hours ahead in UK time, we were able to get out bright and early the next morning ready for a dawn start on what was our second day in the Big Apple. With news that my most sought after species (Blackburnian Warbler) had just been spotted at a part of Central Park called Cherry Hill, we rushed out to try and catch up with what could potentially be a difficult warbler to add to our trip list.
