Nothing unlucky about number 13 on this list!

We weren't expecting to see this on day one, nor necessarily in the UK at all. We heard a report of two on the NNT reserve at Cley and having whizzed up there from Titchwell, after some searching, we eventually found one of the birds on Pat's Pool. At the time of writing this is the only one of this species we have seen although we do expect to see them in April in Louisiana and probably again in November in Brazil.

Poor old birds!

What a disastrous few days were having weather wise, here we are officially in spring and the snow just keeps coming. A week ago this was the scene in our garden.
A few days later it was bright and sunny and we had a Carrion Crow come to the food that we place by the back door on the step, he didn't seem too concerned that I was just inside watching his every move.

Birdwatching and photography in my local patch is what I do pretty often. After a hard week I decided to spend a few more hours in the bed on the Saturday morning and then go out :) Well, I walk up at about 9 am and off I went to my local patch about 20 km W of Sofia. A lovely oak woodland with open patches of grassland and scrub. It is still early for the meadow birds so I decided to focus on the woodland.

Initially it was pretty quiet. Nothing was calling. In a couple of minutes...

Jabiru & Spinifexbirds

Posted Friday 22nd March 2013 at 23:10 by Seashore
I am surprised! Jabiru is a bird name that possibly goes back to ancient Egyptians and I thought it was an indigenous Australian name. Spinifexbirds avoid me. Is it something I've said?

Pectoral Sandpiper in a forest setting.

Posted Friday 22nd March 2013 at 20:05 by Rick and Elis
Our friend David Lindo, The Urban Birder is oft heard to say that "just about anything can turn up anywhere at any time". Well how about a Pectoral Sandpiper on a sandy track in the Atlantic rainforest of south-east Brazil? Sound unlikely? Well it happened to us.

Back in 2010 before we returned to England we had been involved in a number of projects to promote bird conservation and protection of the forest. One of the projects we got involved with was called Brincando com...
