ID:	1383I went to the rocky beach on the border of Corrubedo natural park. I saw a common greenshank. Soon appeared a whimbrel followed by this bar-tailed godwit.This bird holds the record for non-stop flight . It has been followed a female that flew from Alaska to New Zealand traveling 13,690 km without eating. They breed on Artic lands, the western ones migrate in winter to temperate coasts of Europe or South Africa and the eastern ones to China or Oceania. Only rare accidental visitors...

The Start of Something Good

Posted Thursday 16th January 2014 at 20:43 by Green Sandpiper

This Christmas I was with my family in Puebla del Caramiñal, my village in Arosa estuary. Amid the storm and the rain I could not walk with the camera. I went to take pictures from the car to the mouth of the two rivers in the village . In the first one I saw a grey heron in the rushes that was accompanied by a little egret .

2014- New Year, Same Ambitions

Posted Thursday 2nd January 2014 at 02:42 by Green Sandpiper
so, here we are, 2014, the start of a new birding year (if years are your thing) and for Green Sandpiper a chance to take stock of what I achieved last year and what I'm aiming for now.

I remember this time last year, setting myself a target of goign to new places, being a bit more adventurous (at least, more willing to travel beyond lanarkshire) and expanding my frustratingy modest lifelist.

A quiet start to the year lifer- wise, and an even quieter start in terms...
