First day out

Posted Saturday 9th January 2016 at 07:44 by Kaarel
First of January, when normal people are sleeping out their hangover, keen birdwatchers are sneaking out with first light. A new yearly list to keep has opened. We tick our first Great Tit for a year with a sense of accomplishment. We do not bother to look at them for the next 364 days.

I hoped to start a year with something more elusive and headed out well before sunrise. My destination was Alam-Pedja Nature Reserve. With over 34 000 ha of bogs, forests and river meadows it is one...

Looking forward at 2016

Happy New Year! I believe it is going to be an interesting year for me. I am planning to learn more about the wildlife surrounding us. I am a keen birder and spend a lot of time outside looking for birds. But there are so much more out there. From mammals everyone notices to ones rarely seen. Plants are everywhere, fungi and lichens hide between the plants. Bugs, spiders and all sorts of critter crawlers living their lives unnoticed. The possibilities to discover wonderful things are endless. So...

We arrived at Través bridge separating L'Encanyssada of L'Clot lagoons.
East of L'Encanyssada lagoon was full of flamingos I counted more than five hundred. Above the mass of flamingos there was a big group of coots and beyond ducks were also seen. There were too some cormorants, great egrets and grey herons.
Finally a big group of flamingos flew towards me and overflew Clot Lagoon and finally they come back to l´Encanyssada Lagoon.

L'Encanyissada lagoon is the largest in Delta. It is full of flamingos.
In the Delta del Ebro flamingo population is around 10,000 birds. And most are in a radio of ten kilometers from this lagoon.
And so I went from Casa de Fusta by the bike path seeing flamingos, black necked grebes, mallards, great white egret, grey herons, and some cormorants
When I arrived at the west end of the lagoon, past the drain of El Tau, a female marsh harrier shadow...
