New bird number 51 (and 52 & 53)

Posted Tuesday 27th May 2014 at 22:46 by Rick and Elis
To the background of our now resident Whitethroat I glanced out of the window across the field towards the lake. Yesterday, the farmer had decided that he needed to cut down a number of the willows that blocked our view of the water. I'm not sure how I feel about cutting down trees at this time of year, but the clear benefit is that straight away I can now add Great crested Grebe to The Cottage list!

It is now just a matter of time until Tufted Duck and Coot which both frequent the...

More Little Curlew moves.

Posted Tuesday 27th May 2014 at 16:24 by Rick and Elis
Little Curlew 131947 (BB) is on the move again. After just a short stay in the Putian area, it has moved 570 km north east. It has transmitted today south of Shanghai and Hangzhou Bay. It is not clear at the moment if the bird has stopped or is continuing on. http://www.waderquest.org/2014/05/mo...lew-moves.html

Visit to Slimbridge.

Posted Friday 23rd May 2014 at 12:17 by Rick and Elis
On our recent visit to the WWT Slimbridge Wetlands Centre we discovered that with the gift aid added to our total, Wader Quest, through the support of many wonderful people, raised £3,526.06 for the WWT Spoon-billed Sandpiper captive breeding programme. Without wishing to sound smug, we find ourselves very pleased with this achievement and felt that the project was been a success.http://www.waderquest.org/2014/05/vi...limbridge.html

World Migratory Bird Day

Posted Sunday 11th May 2014 at 15:35 by Rick and Elis
Many people will be out and about today looking for migratory birds in honour of World Migratory Bird Day. Across the world countless millions of birds are taking the life gamble on moving from one region to another, some making the ultimate sacrifice in order that their species will continue. It is an ancient challenge that has proved successful to birds for a variety of reasons.

However the goalposts have moved somewhat, we, as a species, are changing the face of this planet at...

Paraty, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Posted Friday 2nd May 2014 at 01:13 by Rick and Elis
There is a small, coastal, historic town in south-east Brazil called Paraty or Parati. It is not, or at least hasn't been, as famous as Ubatuba its near (70km) neighbour in São Paulo, but it is a rising star for sure.

n front of the famous frontage onto the quiet bay there lies a small intertidal marsh, not much larger than a bowling green, it at first appears to be insignificant. But we discovered over the years that this little place, for all its diminutive size, turned up some...
