Big cats, white owls, sunny tropics. December 2014.
Written by Jos   

European Lynx, Snowy Owl and a bunch of goodies at the Labanoras feeders, White-backed and Grey-headed Woodpeckers amongst them, not a bad way to begin December! And from there, off to the tropics for near on a month of birding travels.

Ringing the Month. November 2014.
Written by Jos   

White-backed Woodpecker


Nutcrackers teasing, woodpeckers at the feeders. Summer long gone, fields and meadows near devoid of birds, it is the start of my winter ringing season at the feeders ... quite a good start - White-backed and Middle Spotted Woodpeckers amongst the initial haul, Nutcrackers and Black Woodpeckers in the immediate neighbourhood.

Elsewhere, Black-throated Divers and seaducks the best of the rest.

Written by Jos   

Steppe Eagle



Driven by a quirk of geography, funnelled by the Black Sea to the west and the Caucasian Mountains to the east, the Batumi area of eastern Georgia sees one of the greatest raptor migrations in the World - in a short two-month period, over a million birds of prey use this bottleneck, Honey Buzzards, Steppe Buzzards and Black Kites accounting for the bulk, though no shortage of assorted eagles, harriers and hawks adding to the variety.
