The day I went to see the swan in river Manzanares in Monte de el Pardo (last week post), I obviously saw more birds. The most interesting was three black-crowned night herons. Upon arrival I saw some mallards in eclipse. I counted fourteen invasive Florida turtles. A small group of goldfinches fluttered looking for herb seeds

After the train bridge I saw the swan that I was looking for and It was the subject of the post of the previous week....

July 3rd I was going by train across Monte de El Pardo. It is and ancient hunting state of the King in Madrid. When I was crossing River Manzanares I saw the unmistakable figure of a swan. A week later I was walking to the place to see if I could see it again, what happened and allow me to present these photos. I left the car in the parking of the recreational area and I headed upriver, 50 meters after passing under the railway bridge this male swan was on the river.....

Upon arrival to the river under the bridge there were a lot of fiches. Under a heat of 40C carps approached to the surface of the river. Two turtles were taking a sunbathing. Some orioles and some fugitive long-tailed tit. A shrike was on a branch looking to the field beside the river.

Black-crowned night herons flew up from a branches of the river. And a few hundred meters up the river I saw one of them.I had been four days in the last two month trying...

A month ago I wrote a post about Somosaguas newcomers birds in spring, bee-eaters, hoopoe and nightingales. But today I post about residents birds, that are most active in the spring.
As a jackdaw that took a stick with the beak. But It left it there. Perhap it was very large for the nest. Although another jackdaw tried the stick too. Other jackdaw had just take a bath.
Magpies are still more abundant than jackdaws.
A kestrel overflown me

The last weekend I took a walk again on Jarma riverside at Paracuellos. A baby moorhen was walking along the opposite bank of the river and soon it went into hiding when it noticed me.
Most of male mallards were in eclipse. But one male keep the winter plumage.
It seems that Valdebebas treatment plant doesnt treat so well. The river is full of foam beside it.


And a black-crowned night hero escaped from me, but a turtle rested...
