Spotted Nutcracker photography in Bulgaria

Posted Monday 2nd February 2015 at 15:31 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 16:31 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,...

Timing Is Everything- The Butterfly Effect

Posted Friday 30th January 2015 at 01:42 by Green Sandpiper

From trying to head East to Musselburgh and ending up on the Clyde Estuary in the West, to planning big days out, and running on average 3 hours late due to liking a long- lie in in the morning, whenever I make out an itenary, then vow to keep it, the birding gods ensure that it will all go horribly wrong.

Shags in Cabio beach

Posted Friday 23rd January 2015 at 08:35 by Moncho
