Wild Majorca

Testing times, but nature’s fine!

I am going to look at how nature will cope during all this, and what we can do to still enjoy seeing nature to boost our wellbeing.

Glossy Ibis

Wild Majorca

Glossy’s and Barbary’s

It had been a great build up to seeing the Ibis, as earlier on I had been watching a pair of Stone Curlew moving around in the short grass of a small field adjacent to the platform.

Male Brambling (lef) with a male Chaffinch for comparison

Wild Majorca

Let it snow, let it snow!

We all keep a look out in the winter for the Accentors and the Hawfinch, but from time to time a rare vagrant turns up that mixes in with the Chaffinches, and is therefore my chosen bird of the week, the Brambling.

S'Illot waterworks

Wild Majorca

The not so drab looking Gadwall

They breed on wetlands with open water and in the winter they will also frequent lakes and marshes.

Sardinian Warbler

Wild Majorca

Hanging on in there

There are still some good pockets of sunshine to be had, so some species take advantage of this to fulfil their breeding and life cycles.
