August 2012. A Summer Ending.
Written by Jos   

White Stork 

After three weeks exploring the wilds of South Africa, August saw me back in Lithuania, plodding the familiar grounds. With a distinct feel of an autumn in the making, some good days to welcome me back to the country, highlights of which were a Red-footed Falcon and mini-influx of Nutcrackers at Labanoras, plus a wealth of late butterflies, including Idas Blue, Queen of Spain Fritillary and Large Tortoiseshell, and a good passage of raptors, the highlights being Osprey, Lesser Spotted Eagle, Honey Buzzard and Common Kestrel.

June 2012. Wash Out Season.
Written by Jos   




June, near non-stop rain from start to finish! All the same, as the traditional month of nesting activity, Quail, Corncrake, Red-backed Shrikes and Golden Orioles were all in place by the beginning of the month, with Bee-eaters too at their select locations. Surprise of the month however was a cracking Little Crake on my plot a Labanoras, a real mid-summer surprise. Also abundances of frogs and toads, plus a few Common Lizards and a corking Adder.

Balearic Warbler 


Club Med, sunny holiday isle. But so much more - Eleonora's Falcons and Balearic Warblers heading an impressive cast of birds, all seen in the stunning settings of the Serre de Tramuntana mountains and coastal cliffs of the Formentor Peninsula. Also Moltoni's Warbler, Black Vulture and a feast of owls. Add in the rural delights of the interior and the rich wetlands of S'Albufera, home to the likes of Marbled Teal and Purple Swamphens, and the result was a most fine short break.
