A Roe deer group moved through the fields south of Ayllon beside the houses. I saw too many small birds, particularly seed eaters like a corn bunting, serins and greenfinches.

But the surprise of the day was this wren I saw it while I was trying to photograph one of the many nightingales who were hiding in the underbrush. It is the first photograph that I take of this bird.

I was seeing some storks that crossed over the fields when...

Our effort for Global Big Day and World Migratory Bird Day results in a rare find but few waders.

Our intention for the eBird Global Big Day and World Migratory Bird Day was to search out waders in our local area. We had hoped that a Curlew Sandpiper and a Wood Sandpiper seen earlier in the week would stay, but it was not to be. We started our day at Little Linford Nature Reserve.
It was relatively quiet and we were disappointed not to hear a cuckoo although we did see some...

Upon arrival at Pond of Soto de las Juntas I saw flying over the cliffs a black kite. This bird spends the winter in sub-Saharan Africa and they come to Europe to breed in Spring.

But of course you'd expect us to point out that WMBD is not just about cuckoos, doves, quails swallows, warblers wheatears and the like, although these birds are significant and important, it is also about waders of many kinds. We will be thinking especially about some of them out there on lengthy migrations to their breeding grounds far to the north. Like the Little Curlews we have been following on their way from Australia to China and Russia and the Red Knots battling from Patagonia to the Arctic....

Spring has sprung. Many waterfowl and wading birds are going to breed to northern Europe but are compensated by a multitude of birds that breed here but spend the winter in Africa. I have seem bee-eaters, hoopoes, and nightingales last week.
