Back in the saddle; the car booting season begins!

Posted Tuesday 7th April 2015 at 14:25 by Rick and Elis
We have missed doing the car boot sales over the winter months, at least, we had been missing them up until around 05:00 hrs on Saturday morning when the idea of setting forth, overcoming the temptation to stay in our warm and comfy bed, was not so appealing once the moment had finally arrived. It was only after having flung the alarm clock out of the bedroom and down the stairs that I started to think about those intrepid birds that were either on the move or preparing to set off in the face of...

Shorebird Extravaganza: Waders in Working Wetlands. Louisiana, USA 29th April - 5th M

Posted Thursday 2nd April 2015 at 11:47 by Rick and Elis
These two stalwarts with others have been doing wader surveys, called the Shorebird Blitz in the region for a number of years and this year have turned the concept into a festival called Waders in Working Wetlands: Shorebird Extravaganza.

Posted Tuesday 24th March 2015 at 16:12 by Rick and Elis
Imagine how tired you would feel if you had to make the incredible non-stop flight from Alaska to Australia like Bar-tailed Godwits do. It would be the equivalent of you running a marathon, non-stop for 9 days at 53kph the whole way with no food, water or rest. Some feat!

Bar-tailed Godwits obviously arrive in Australia after such a journey exhausted and very hungry, they will have lost 50% of their body weight along the way...http://www.waderquest.org/2015/03/st...-birdlife.html

A sparrowhawk locking-on to it!
This beauty spent some time sitting on our bird bath beneath the feeders today...
before moving off to the fence and then away empty taloned.
