A very prolific site is Lerizia. And probably warmer than Slovenia in January. You are building your 2020 portfoglio really quickly.

A beautiful set of additions from an apparently excellent birding site!

Saturday morning I went to a Hide in Arrábida, less than 40km south of Lisbon, I´ve been there a couple of times last year and it´s a good place to get some forest birds, there are two hides in the place, a YMCA camping, the hide I already new was booked so I had to settle for the other one which has an orientation that in the morning isn´t as good as the other one.

 

I struggled a bit with the light conditions and also with the focus of a couple of birds, they move quickly and don´t pose for as long as I wished :P.

 

Anyway, at this stage my list of forest birds was pretty much empty so every species that showed up was an addition.

I wasn´t exprecting to see this one, it occurs in the area but in small numbers, it´s not really common south of the Tagus River, and last year I was only able to get a really scrappy EBC so it was a good surprise.

I thought I had a better picture of the Dunnock so I stoped photographing them , should have carried on.

They have this pitiful look but they were bullying the Dunnocks, they left the other birds alone but as soon as they saw a Dunnock they chased it away, quite funny to watch.

Also from Saturday, another new species:

 

#29 (N2), 4/1, Woodlark, Arrábida

1296950254_Cotoviarborea24JANArrbida.jpg.e4c82da8a1c0adab4a3332deb7aa481c.jpg

 

Not the best shots but it was really far from the road, the P900 did a good job because even with binoculars I could only see there was a bird, and that´s because I saw it fly to the tree.

At this rate you will either break the P900 or break our spirits. :P

30 in the first 7 days of the year. Well done.
