Corsica & Sardinia, April 2013
Written by Jos   

 Black-necked Grebe

Corsica, famed for its endemic Corsican Nuthatch and several near-endemics such as Corsican Finch and Marmora's Warbler (both shared with Sardinia), the island also offers some highland birding, Lammergeiers, Rock Sparrow and Alpine Chough amongst the possibilities. Whilst Sardinia lacks the Corsican Nuthatch, the island is blessed by a rather richer selection of lowland birding sites than its neighbour, not only numerous localities for birding the typical Mediterranean habitats, but also a number of excellent wetlands, as well as grasslands supporting populations of Little Bustards.

April 2013. Spring At Last!
Written by Jos   

White-backed Woodpecker

 

Farewell a month of snow, so arrives the merry month of April ...and a bucketload of more snow!!!

Little migration in the first days of the month, but both Snow Buntings and Whooper Swans recorded at Labanoras, plus lingering White-backed Woodpeckers continuing to hog the feeders. From the 8th however, the migrant floodgates began to open ... and within days, tens of thousands of birds on the move, including raptors galore, massive movements of passerines and oodles of cranes and storks, movements that lasted much of the month.
