New York Trip Report - Day 2 (Central Park)

Posted Monday 14th December 2015 at 21:47 by Wood Nymph
Day 2 - Friday 22nd May 2015

With our jet lagged internal clocks still operating 5 hours ahead in UK time, we were able to get out bright and early the next morning ready for a dawn start on what was our second day in the Big Apple. With news that my most sought after species (Blackburnian Warbler) had just been spotted at a part of Central Park called Cherry Hill, we rushed out to try and catch up with what could potentially be a difficult warbler to add to our trip list.

A final (?) flick of the tail for Wader Conservation World Watch and a word about Joh

Posted Monday 14th December 2015 at 19:19 by Rick and Elis
I am reading the final chapters of a book by Isabella Tree about John Gould and rather feel that the idea of bringing people together around the world to one end is somewhat in the spirit of what he achieved. http://www.waderquest.org/2015/12/a-...for-wader.html

On December 5th I got to Ebro delta. When I arrived with the car to Deltebre town I saw some cattle egret.
I took the road to the beach of La Marquesa. This great egret stood in the crowd of herons. I had long not seen one of them.
I found a little later a common sandpiper in a irrigation ditch.
Grey herons and little egrets were in every place.
When I arrived Els Bascos in a rice paddy to the left I could see a group of three glossy ibis....

The poisoning of the Rio Doce, Brazil.

Posted Sunday 6th December 2015 at 14:31 by Rick and Elis
We are amazed and rather disappointed that this huge ecological disaster, probably the worst in Brazil's history, has not been given more media coverage outside Brazil except perhaps for articles about the financial cost to the companies involved, how much it will cost to put it right and who will pay what. There is much talk of billion dollar lawsuits where the lawyers will get rich and money will be paid over to a government which is under fire for alleged misappropriation of funds from many quarters....

I continued down my road, and a little later there was a new egret. Two moorhens foraged in the riverside. After a while other two moorhens with a couple of mallards. And I began to see many ducks, so far I had seen few, but all mallards
There was little light in the rainy day and the camera was not fast enough for little birds, especially for nervous warblers. A tree sparrow among branches was challenging camera AF.
A couple of females or young chaffinches....
