Species 109 seen at Titchwell

Posted Wednesday 26th June 2013 at 00:34 by Rick and Elis
After a couple of days resting and dealing with a backlog of work, Elis and I were desperate to get back in the field and look at some waders again, it is a long time to our next scheduled trip in August after the Bird Fair. So, knowing that there were Spotted Redshanks at Titchwell, we drove up there to see them, and see them is all we did, they remained right at the back far corner of the freshmarsh for our entire visit there! So here is a photograph of one we took last year instead.

I know that birding opportunities are great in the early morning as the sky brightens and the air warm, but I like my sleep. Today I was awoken around 5:00 AM by a visiting pileated woodpecker.

Early mornings in Sooke, BC are usually quiet and serene in the summer. Pileated woodpeckers are rear at this time of...

Series of talks to 220 Brazilian schoolchildren.

Posted Tuesday 18th June 2013 at 17:59 by Rick and Elis
It can be difficult to get children that live over 500km from the nearest coastline to connect with waders and shorebirds! It is however rewarding when they realise that the loud and raucous Southern Lapwings on their local football field are also waders.
They also were intrigued to find that we ventured still further into the interior of Brazil in search of the Pied Lapwing. The fact that we had visited the capital of their country was equally as intriguing as none of them had ever been...
