Fantastic Bird Fair Weekend

Posted Monday 18th August 2014 at 23:00 by Rick and Elis
Wader Quest has just enjoyed one of its best weekends ever in terms of garnering support and raising funds and awareness about what we do.
Mind you it didn't bode well when we arrived at the top of the hill overlooking the bird fair site and saw the valley was being rained upon in no uncertain way, but thankfully the weather was kind to us for most of the weekend.

I went to the Isle of Sálvora incorporated into the Atlantic Islands National Park with Cies and Ons in 2007. A whole string of islets extends between Aguiño and Sálvora Isle where I could see these shags. Up to 65 of them can be counted in the detail of this photo of the islet of Noro. I could see some immature as the right one. Over the sea I saw some shags and yellow-legger gulls. Yellow-legged gulls are the most common bird on Sálvora isle. The census was 12,206...

Green Sandpiper's Mid- Year Report 2014

Posted Friday 8th August 2014 at 22:57 by Green Sandpiper
a bit later with this than expected, but as its the quiet season for birds, now's as good a time as any.

I set out this year to have a 'good year', not a big year as such, with lots of chasing about the country twitching, but expanding my horizons, working on lifer ticks of ordinary species, immersing myself in birdlife, really, seeking the best of both worlds.

So far, i'd say that the year has been a roaring success. 11 lifers, plus a dozen or so unexpected year ticks...

In the breakwater of Aguiño harbour you could see a group of black-headed gulls, but the left one looked more like a mediterranean Gull. A young ringed plover walked on the beach and another one was on the breakwater. Flocks of Yellow-legged gull occupied the bottom of the breakwater, but in a quick look I did not see great black-backed gulls like in the winter. I saw this ringed cormorant on a distant rock. Maybe G?8 white plastic ring on the left leg. The metal one...
