Pictures of Alpine Swift nests

Well it isn't exatly the nest but the hole where the nest was. They were always stopping there.

First Alpine Swifts at school

Last thursday me and my friends were meeting in front of our school to go to the demonstration (there was a general strike in Spain on thursday 29).
While waiting for my friends a large group of Alpine Swifts flew over the playground.
I guess they'll nest on the building nearby in some ventilation holes like last year.
On the trees on the street I could also find two Serins and a Blackcap.

Remolar Filipines 18/03/2012

Hi, once again.
I'm sorry to post so late, but I was one week in Lyon with the school and I hadn't access to the pics'.
On the riera there were a couple of Pochards and some Little Grebes.
At the hide from Pollancres there were two Flamingos, a Spoonbill, Greylag Geese, Red Crested Pochards...
We went on to the Maresma where there were more species despite the hide was full of people.
With the scope I spotted a nice group of waders which included Black Tailed Godwit, Redshank, Spotted Redshank, Black Winged Stilt, the last Lapwing...
There were also many duck species including some Wigeons, Shelducks, Teals and Shovelers.
Many wintering birds were still present and some migrants had arrived so I had a lot of species that day including some like Gannet and Sandwich Tern which I saw at the beach.
 After counting I realized I had seen 58 species which are my record at the Delta del Llobregat :)

This was a turtle present at the Maresma. Does anybody know what species it is, if you need I've got more pictures. Thanks a lot.
