Killymarley July 2011. Warbler Watching

Posted Monday 1st August 2011 at 12:25 by Monahawk
This summer, though not the best weather wise, has been good for warblers on my patch. Chiffchaffs and willow warblers are the most comon and definately the easiest to find. Blackcaps, once scarce on my patch but now breeding, are a delight to listen to at close quarters, but can be secretive and sedge warblers constantly babbling in the local bogs add to the many summer sounds. A pair of these vocal warblers actually nested deep in a hedge by the roadside on my patch this summer and were very obliging...

Jiulianshan NR, Jiangxi Province, China W/E

Posted Thursday 21st July 2011 at 03:29 by BIJ
Richard Carden was visiting Shenzhen and wanted to see White-eared Night Heron and Blyth's Kingfisher. He also hoped to find Silver Pheasant so I asked a friend of mine if we could travel up in his car to the resereve. Gaofeng Zhang kindly agreed and made all the arrangements at the hotel. It was to be my second visit to this wonderful reserve and Goafeng's fifth.

Posted Tuesday 12th July 2011 at 00:34 by BIJ
Gongping Dahu NR. 9/10th July 2011.
I was joined this W/E by John & Jemi Holmes and Jonathan Martinez.The latter had never visited Dahu beach before to see the Swinhoe's Plover. The weather held good although it was very hot and humid. A bit of a suprise was to find the PRCA holding manoeuvers in the village and on the beach but luckily yhe SP breeding season is virtually over and most of this year's crop of juveniles from two broods have already departed, leaving around 60+ adults...

Larks Ascending

Posted Thursday 7th July 2011 at 19:14 by BugBear99
Yesterday, I experienced an astoundingly beautiful and moving display by a number of skylarks simultaneously. I had no idea we had skylarks just a few hundred metres from our home, and I feel so privileged for having seen them just once, let alone being able to see them every day if I wish.
