Great Tit on the Balcony!

Yesterday , while eating, I saw something on the balcony. I went looking, and... Great Tit (I don't now who was more surprised of seeing the other one, the Great Tit or me ;)

I post this because I only have seen once a bird on my balcony (Goldfinch) and I found it funny, now I have got a Balcony list of 2 birds (if we don't count birds seen from the balcony).

Delta del Llobregat 16/01/2011

On january 16th I went to the Delta del Llobregat reserve with my father, more concretely to Remolar-Filipines.

When we arrived, at the way to the hides,  we saw Chiffchafs, other passerine birds and some Little Grebes.

Once at the hide I took my mum's camera and started taking pictures of the birds.
There were good numbers of ducks, with Mallard, Gadwall, Wigeon, Shelduck, Pintail and some other species.
This day the usual wintering Marsh Harriers showed very good (fighting with Common Buzzard).
As I was looking through the scope, suddendly I heard a lot of camera noise, it were some photographers taking pictures of a bird near the hide, I went to see the bird and...Surprise! A lifer, my first ever Water Rail, which showed excelent.    

 After that we had some really nice views of little and Black-Necked Grebe, Shoveler, Teal greylag Goose(2)Crested Grebe and some other birds.

As it was starting to be late, we had to go home.

Here some other pics'.

Hi, my name's Nico(lás) Ordax, and this is my personal blog.
This blog is mainly about my greatest hobby: BIRDING!
I live in Barcelona and I mainly go birding at the Llobregat Delta, with occasional visits to the Ebro Delta and the Aigüamolls de l'Empordà.
My equipment is a Nikon scope and the Steiner Sky Hawk 10x26 bins'.

I hope you like it! 'Till next post!
