Yesterday Birgit had been for a few hours at the Guadalhorce. 22°C in the shadow with nice weather had to be used. It was just wonderful to come out again and look at the birds!

The photo report …

Birgit had been for a few days at the Guadalquivir and met lots of feathery friends! As for example this male Eurasian marsh harrier. What a magnificent bird

More photos you’ll find here:

Salines at Bonanza and surroundings
And within the next days Birgit will post more photo reports, because naturally they experienced much more!

Since Birgit enjoyed it so much at the Wadden Sea of Chipiona, they shortly before sunset also visited the mouth of the Guadalquivir leading into the Atlantic Ocean! Terrific, because also there they met birds, for example these nice sanderlings:

Here you’ll find the short report:

Beach life at Sanlúcar de Barrameda

Here follows the last report telling from the bird paradise upriver along the Guadalquivir. Beside of thousands of white storks we also met some black stork groups and many more other feathery friends:

Please follow to the report here:

Bird paradise Guadalquivir

Birgit hopes you enjoyed the photos. For a long time they’ll live on these wonderful experiences!

Many lovely photos -- I especially liked the harriers -- I love watching the ones we have here -- and some of the wading shorebirds.

It’s time to tell you the story of Y.ARS! Y.ARS is the young Black-headed gull which Birgit was able to photograph in the air at the beach of Chipiona. To read the ring number was really difficult and Birgit herself would have given up. But there was one Spanish ornithologist with them and he was successful. After days of research he found out from where the Black-headed Gull was ringed: in the Netherlands!

Of course Y.ARS immediately got her own webpage

Y.ARS, the migrating Black-headed Gull

Ringing is after all not too bad. Until now Birgit always thought nobody is interested in reported ring numbers, because she never got an answer. But, thanks to her Spanish bird friend Rafa, Birgit learned, that you have to make a distinction between reliable and not so reliable projects…

Rafa anyhow was successful also to find out the birth place of the young Osprey 8/SY which they observed September 13 2010 at the Salines at Bonanza! And look here, the Osprey was born at Storkow, Brandenburg, in a nest which is even to be observed via webcam. Maybe some of you experienced 8/SY as a chick!?

Here is its exciting family story:

Banded Osprey 8/SY

The other day Birgit “discovered” a beauty spot between the large concrete hotel buildings at the Mediterranian!
Guadalmansa is just located to that place 10 Kilometers away from her home and Birgit really don’t understand, why, until now, she never had a look before! Maybe because it is not a nature reserve, only the river mouth area, but good enough there is some naturalness remaining. And on the shore Birgit even discoverd a Audouin’s gull:

Image

Who would like to look at the small report finds it here:

Mouth of the Guadalmansa – November 18 2010

:2thumbsup: So now Birgit has the whole story and we do too. Great international co-operation :nod:
Now,for the White Storks.. :slap:
Thee is one site I have learnt of for bird indentification ;
http://www.migracion.net (this site does not seem to lead anywhere :puzzled: )
I sent a sighting (of a Black Cap seen on a birdfeeder in our garden last week and should be migrating to warmer climes ! ) to worldbirds@rspb.org.uk Maybe they can help with our quest ?

Really a great international co-operation, Macdoum! :)
Three of the white storks are almost identificated. Their stories are coming soon. Hopefully I´ll receive the story of the german white stork today (the DER ringed one).

Kind regards
Birgit
