    Warbler in northern Spain

    Hello, This weekend I saw this Warbler in a pine wood area near to Barcelona. It's in the middle of a little wetland area. From the leg colour I ruled out Chiffchaff so I'd say Willow Warbler (yellow-greenish underparts) but I can't exclude Wood Warbler entirely as they're also migrating now...

    Bird ID august spanish Pyrenees

    A Red Footed Falcon would be very nice but also very unlikely. In Spain we only have them in the nort-east corner of Catalonia occasionally during migrations. Thank you all for your answers.

    BOP at the Delta del Llobregat

    Hello, The 1st November I went to the Delta del Llobregat (some wetlands near of Barcelona) and, suddenly, a Falcon-like Bird of Prey scared away all Lapwings. It was definitely much smaller than a Buzzard. I could only get two very bad pictures. What do you think it may be? Thanks very much for...
