Welcome back and you will find that the habitat is rather good. There is a black hole near Monxton that can have a negative impact. Looking forward to filling in the gaps from the last sighting on this shore.

Orlando Final Week

The tour of duty is nearly over and this is my final report from Orlando. Allegedly this is it and I will not be back here on duty but never say never as there are a few months left before we go live across the MoD. The question is what do I include in this report. First a few hints on getting about...

Orlando Week 7

This last weekend has been very much a “tourist” trip rather than searching swamp and woods. There were opportunities for birds to present themselves ready for me to note that they are a new species this trip. One was when I went for an 8 mile paddle along the Wekiva River in a canoe. This was a del...

Orlando Week 6

This was a slow week though I had to put the miles in to get the target bird. Not only did I spend hours in a car I also had to tab in to be greeted by lots of Meadow Larks but no target bird. Saturday had started very early to get to Three Lakes ready for Red-cockaded Woodpecker as daylight beckone...

Orlando Week 5

It was a Bank Holiday weekend here with BBQs and fireworks. That was no excuse to rest on my laurels however I was distracted over the weekend. I spent Saturday at an expats house sitting on the boat dock watching Green Herons constantly fly up and down the canal. On the other side of the water from...

Orlando Week 4

That was an eventful week what with sport and birds. What with being knocked out of the World Cup, scraping over the line in the cricket and only a 2nd and 3rd place in the Grand Prix there is not much to shout about. But at least we were not France, humiliated in soccer and rugby. My birding was no...

Orlando Week 3

The week has quickly passed and I find myself in the office from early to late. I even was working through the England game and judging by the radio commentary on ESPN I was better off testing Standard Repair Actions than watching the game. I will be watching the game this morning though. I was begi...

Orlando Week 2

I realise that after one week the number of species was looking rather limited. I therefore decided to do something about it. Wednesday night we held a BBQ at the hotel for the Brit team. The hotel provided the BBQ , beans, beer and wine and we provided the meat and chef. The only bird was an Osprey...

Orlando Week 1

Though I allegedly up to my eyeballs with work I did think that to pass away some of the evenings, a few of you may be interested in my birding around Orlando. I arrived 1 Jun and for the first time I showed my NATO Travel Order at immigration which resulted in no finger prints being taken. What the...

Dotterel

Spent Friday evening watching a flock of 12 Dotterel at Vedette 13, Casterley on SPTA. In addition there was 1 Dunlin with them. This was followed by a couple of pints of IPA at my local. Magic!

Albufeira Holiday

I had a late summer holiday with a week at an all inclusive resort in Albufeira on the Algarve coast. The hotel was situated a 15 minute walk from the coast and was surrounded by a mix of developments. I was fortunate to have a small valley running past which to the north was undeveloped and to the ...
