Finally sunshine today from a cloudless Andalusian sky. So Birgit set out for the lagoons of Campillos.

And there the flamingos were waiting for Birgit:

And anything else I experienced you can see and read here:

The stone curlews at Fuente de Piedras didn´t get out of our minds. So we went on the way again.

And this little egret ---

…invites you to look at the photos of our trip:

Looking for the stone curlews and much more!

Birgit just came back from her weekend trip to the Guadalquivir. And the storks from Africa too, because all the nests on the pilgrimage chapel at the river were occupied.

Image

What does Birgit say: This was just terrific! Same fascination we felt, experiencing the birth of lambs in the middle of this untrafficked roads. And well, anyhow, it was just great! Who would like to see all the photos please come here:

Experiences at the Guadalquivir!

These chirping spotless starlings yesterday were as happy as Birgit, that the sky in Andalusia finally was blue again:

Image

Of course Birgit immediately had the desire to go out into the nature. If you like, here is a short report:

Lagoon and Guadalhorce-mouth

Yes, Kuremari and Olga, everything went fine with the little lamb and it´s mother. This was just beautiful to be in middle of the sheeps and to observe this birth. And we also liked it very much to see the big tendernes of the shepherd! :)

Birgit the other evening had her fun. Directly at the pond there is a big bush. And as dusk came this bush started to become lively. Out of its branched branches jumped tree frogs - some from a great hight - directly into the pond. Certainly around 20! This bush Birgit has to investigate during daytime

And what happens when water- and tree frogs meet each other ....

Image

... Birgit tells here:

The Living together of water- and tree frogs

In the biotope there is a lot going on, 'hot entertainment' so to say... The water frogs woke up, but the tree frogs drown everything:

Here a photo series about:

Territoriality of the stripeless tree frog

Hi Olga and all other dear readers! :loveshower:

Today I have to admit you something .... hm hmmm hmmm .... how can I say it ... :rolleyes: ... I love those frogs! :D :D All of them! I find them sooo funny, that I can spent hours and hours with them observing their way of live and making pictures.

But be sure: I dont´forget the birds! Black kites migration is just crazy right now en southern Spain. Thousands of them coming home from Africa. Unfortunately today the weather was too bad for good pictures. We´ll try it once again tomorrow.

Kind regards from Spain

Birgit

:wave: Somehow when I was watching the photos and reading the story, could sense that. They are enchanting, and when they have got your heart, you do not care any discomfort, do not notice the hours. You have mediated that feeling by sharing these photographs of the lovely frogs :thumbs: a direct contact with nature.

Thank you Brit! Greetings to Birgit Kremer. Her Black kite-photographs are gorgeus - Milvus migrans, in Estonian Must-harksaba and in Finnish Haarahaukka If I don't remember wrong it is a rare bird here in Finland, but our neighbour insisted last summer that one couple of them he had seen here around our little hill)

I wonder if Birgit has wings too! How on earth is it possible to take that kind of super photos of flying black kites :slap: So the spring time is on its way, there are also tens and tens of White storks returning to North!

May I add some of them here to see direct? :puzzled:

Dear Olga,

thank you very much for your so kind answers!

I´m very happy that I could transmit the beauty and the fun of these little frogs.

It would be great to have wings, but it´s much easier to take the pictures of the black kites with both feet in the ground. :D Their movements are soooo quick. If I would also be able to move in the aire ... impossible to get a picture! And ... you cannot imagine how many bad pictures I did this day. Hundreds! But some of the black kites came very close and the light was quite good. So I had a chance to try it once and once and once again! :laugh:

Black kites are real artists in the air. When they loose some food they are carring they are able to fly after the food falling down and catch it once again. I love and admire those birds! But waht do I say? I love ALL birds and ALL animals, beside of the cucarachas maybe! :D

Kind regards and a nice day

Birgit
