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
Its probably true to say that my plans- my birding plans at least- frequently fail, and fail spectacularly. 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. But is this necessarily a bad thing?

Mystery wader photo.

Posted Tuesday 20th January 2015 at 20:23 by Rick and Elis
Recently on our facebook page we posted a photo of a bird feeding with half of its head and all of its bill underwater which we have reproduced here. Bills are very important in identifying waders and so making this bird's ID a little tricky. If you didn't see that post have a guess what this bird is before scrolling down.
