Upon reaching the beach I saw a group of oystercatchers accompanied by some curlew and one turnstone flying towards the rocks
I started to do a count on the rocks left to right.
Bringing the final count was 39 oystercatchers, 33 seagulls 7 whimbrels, perhaps a curlew, eight bar-tailed godwits, 6godwits, 3 turnstone, and one plover.
I came back two days later at December 27, and thanks to a fellow who had good binoculars I spotted two great northern...

Fulfilling weekend in Cheshire and Wirral.

Posted Tuesday 10th February 2015 at 15:36 by Rick and Elis
Friday afternoon saw Elis and I heading up a heavily congested motorway network taking four hours to complete a three hour journey but we still arrived with plenty of time for our talk to the Cheshire and Wirral Ornithological Society (CAWOS). We were greeted by a packed hall of around 50 people which is always encouraging. Once again we were humbled by the reception Wader Quest and its aims were given.

A cormorant swam a little further and there were two in a musselfarming plattform.
A crow and a gul made a great fuss....

Spotted Nutcracker photography in Bulgaria

Posted Monday 2nd February 2015 at 16:31 by dancho_hristov
Photographing Spotted Nutcrackers is meant to be fairly easy. However we don't see many pictures of these lovely birds.
I just returned from a trip to a place not far from where I live. My aim was to take pictures of Spotted Nutcrackers.

I have been photographing Nutcrackers in Bulgaria before but this time I wanted to do something different.
Birds were so close that I decided to take a wide angle pictures of Spotted Nutcrackers.

Here is what I managed...

Magellanic Plover project underway.

Posted Friday 30th January 2015 at 17:31 by Rick and Elis
We have received news from Ricardo Matus who is leading the Wader Quest team in Punta Arenas to confirm that the Wader Quest Magellanic Plover ringing project is under way.

Our project team comprising Ricardo along with his wife Olivia Blank and Fernando Díaz were at Los Palos and found around 18 Magellanic Plovers including at least three juveniles. They set a couple of the new nets that we had provided and captured a total of four birds including two fairly large juveniles. ...
