Fulfilling weekend in Cheshire and Wirral.

Posted Tuesday 10th February 2015 at 15:36 by Rick and Elis
Friday afternoon saw Elis and I heading up a heavily congested motorway network taking four hours to complete a three hour journey but we still arrived with plenty of time for our talk to the Cheshire and Wirral Ornithological Society (CAWOS). We were greeted by a packed hall of around 50 people which is always encouraging. Once again we were humbled by the reception Wader Quest and its aims were given. As for the talk, our usual yardstick of no-one drifting off or leaving was met but one poor gentleman...

I found this heron just after parking, beside the rocks behind the church of Maño. Then it got scared and he went to the rocks of the Point of the Castriños.
Two yellow-legged gulls fished in front of me.
The beach was full of shellfish workers, making it difficult to observe other birds that were not adventurous seagulls.
A cormorant swam a little further and there were two in a musselfarming plattform.
A crow and a gul made a great fuss....

Spotted Nutcracker photography in Bulgaria

Posted Monday 2nd February 2015 at 16:31 by dancho_hristov
Photographing Spotted Nutcrackers is meant to be fairly easy. However we don't see many pictures of these lovely birds.
I just returned from a trip to a place not far from where I live. My aim was to take pictures of Spotted Nutcrackers.

I have been photographing Nutcrackers in Bulgaria before but this time I wanted to do something different.
Birds were so close that I decided to take a wide angle pictures of Spotted Nutcrackers.

Here is what I managed...

Posted Friday 30th January 2015 at 17:31 by Rick and Elis
We have received news from Ricardo Matus who is leading the Wader Quest team in Punta Arenas to confirm that the Wader Quest Magellanic Plover ringing project is under way.

I wake up and saw one of the couple of peregrine hawks on the tower. He flew out and come in later. He went out again, and the tower began to be owned by starlings and sparrows.

I went to the mouth of the river Pedras. Two herons were by the sea, far away during low tide. The mouth of the river was full of yellow-legged gulls. Half a dozen of cormorant were by the sea. Four domestics goose of a nearby farm walk between them. Beside the wellog-legged gulls,...
