Plenty of birds in an open area

4 03 2012

Going out the night before did not stop me to go for a walk (of course late in the morning…) around La Vega Lagunera, an open area consisting in a mixture of crops and low bushes. Firstly, I saw 2 migrating black kites, one of them fighting with a local common buzzard, and then I enjoyed both spectacled warblers and Berthelot’s pipits, most of them singing and doing display flights.

It was interesting to see a Sardinian warbler feeding on Opuntia and the always impressive Tenerife blue tits already paired and defending territory. I also flushed a meadow pipit and a song thrush that must be migrants.

Let’s wait for the true spring.
