I have been really busy with getting the website finished the last few days and as a result, I have had little time for birding. Managed a few hours up at Algorfa this evening which turned out to be really good. As I watched the rock face I hoped to see Eagle Owl on, a number of other species were recorded, Bee-eater (numerous), Iberian Grey Shrike (4), Stone Curlew (10+), Little Owl (2) and Black Wheatear all showed well.

Unfortunetley the Eagle Owl didn't show but I have a good idea where it has moved to, it tends to move around the area and appears not to be breeding despite holding a good (large) territory. A huge consolation was a Red-necked Nightjar which completley out of character began flying around in full daylight and landed in the open for a few minutes. I was that caught up in the moment that by the time I reached for my camera it took to the air again, landing out of view.

  1. Hi mate hope all is going well, I'm enjoying the blog and the website looks great. I've plugged Aquila bird tours on the Devon 2010 blog - do I now get a company t-shirt like Joe?!
