I have compiled some of the old photos of the area of the Henares, from the times previous to the Blog that would otherwise only exist in my computer. The quality is worse than the current that is not brilliant . But at the time I was glad of see these birds. Some of them were in my old hunting ground of the urban river Henares through Alcalá. As these cormorants.They were not usual in this part of the river. This couple had the coloring of the mating season, with white...

To the east of Somosaguas Campus there is a small riverside forest above a tiny stream which rises from a sewer from Pozuelo town. Although contamination of the sewer there are enough animals around . We started watching the ubiquitous wood pigeons, rabbits, tits, magpies,finches, and our usual little owl

Birding Southern Texas

Posted Monday 24th March 2014 at 12:27 by Old Fulica
My wife and I are currently in South Padre Island Texas. This is close to Brownsville and the Mexican border. This is a very exciting birding area for a northerner from Canada as many of the birds we see are either new or very rarely seen in our part of the world (British Columbia). We will be here for a month and then off to Arizona to catch their spring migration. To follow our adventures check out our blog;

The fragility of a Birding Mojo

Posted Monday 17th March 2014 at 23:15 by Green Sandpiper
I've mentioned before my hope that this would be a 'good year' not necessarily a 'big year' as too much else in life impacts on my birding, but a year of quality birding, new places, new species, immersing myself in birds and nature. Its funny though how the birding gods conspire to keep your feet on the ground- for every ying of a great day out, there's the yang of a blown weekend. Take a couple of recent weekends.

The first of my big days out (where I had been promised the car...
