Remolar-Filipines 04/12/2011

Yesterday, my dad and I made a short trip to the Delta del Llobregat.
On the way to the hides, along the "riera" there were Pochards and some passerines (like Chiffchaff). Once at the hides, we mounted the scope and started watching, between a quite large flock of Lapwings were some Spotted Redshanks, Golden Plovers and Dunlins. A Marsh Harrier and a Sparrowhawk appeared and all the Lapwings flew away, in the middle of the Lapwing group we realized a Glossy Ibis. It sat down on one of the islands near to the hide. There were also Shelducks, Purple Swamphens, Wigeons and other waterbirds.

On the way back, I found two Tufted Ducks at the "riera", there were also two Black Necked Grebes.

Pelagic from Tarragona 26/11/2011

Last saturday I went to one of the pelagics made from Tarragona,
 At the harbour of Tarragona we could see some Shags, a Sandwich Tern and some Cormorants. We continued and started throwing fish, to attract the seabirds, soon, we had a quite large number of Gulls behind us (most of which Mediterranean, Yellow Legged and Black Headed). Soon there appeared the first Gannets who showed brilliantly, there were also Balearic and a few Yelkouan Shearwaters. The most important species of the day were 3 Razorbills who we saw flying to the north.
