Two Sundays agos I went to Parque Forestal de Entrevías. I saw a hoopoe constantly. I saw a couple of green woodpeckers too. Among and almond tree was this great tit. These tree sparrows were in a pine near.The hoopoe reappeared elsewhere. And also one of the two partners of the woodpeckers couple.The hoopoe was again re-arranged.But the woodpecker was in the same sleepy. In a pine a male serin allowed me to take a picture. It is the closest wild animal to a canary...

Midsomer Murders (without the bodies!)

Posted Sunday 6th July 2014 at 23:41 by Rick and Elis
So many of the Midsomer Murders series are set around twee village fêtes and carnivals, well, today we felt like we were on the set of one of those episodes, half expecting one of the Chief Inspector Barnabys to stroll past with one of his hapless sergeants; instead we got a couple of local Community Support Officers...http://www.waderquest.org/2014/07/mi...ut-bodies.html

I am posting this to let anyone who chatted regularly with my husband, The Gaffer, know that he passed away on 22nd June. He was a brave, private man who loved nature. He will be deeply missed.

What Kind Of Birder.....

Posted Sunday 29th June 2014 at 23:18 by Green Sandpiper
Different names and labels are something which has vexed birders since we first startign talkign about that sort of thing. I don't the categories suggested by Bill Oddie but something more ethereal. I've written a lot about how I struggle to balance a quest for ticks with the joy of sometimes just immersing myself in bird life.

A recent Big Day Out raised a new issue- am I a 'Nature Reserve Birder' or am I a 'Wild Birder'?

After last months trip to St Abb's Head,...
