Late August birding in Navarra

Category: ,

Watching Egyptian Vultures in the Larra karst area (Navarra Pyrenees).
David, from Canada, and Irina, from Ukrainia, visited Navarra in late August this summer. It was their first time in the Western Pyrenees area and they wanted to bird visiting different type of habitats and birding spots, so we designe dan itinerary that took us to high mountains, gorges, forests, mediterranean scrubland, steppes and wetlands.
2018 has been a quite dry year and this has their consecuences in birds. There’s fewer food as the plants didn’t grew so much as other years and didn’t produce as many seeds as they used to, this means fewer invertebrates and birds have noticed it. This year has become a hard year for birds and also for birders that want to find them. So to go out in search of them was a tough challenge; nota ll the birds we wanted to find were found, but we managed to see several interesting species… some of them even ‘lifers’ for our guests.
Griffon Vulture

A finales del pasado agosto estuvimos guiando a David, de Canadá, y a Irina, de Ucrania. Era su primera visita a nuestra zona y, a pesar de haber sido un año muy seco que ha hecho escasear a algunas especies de aves, pudimos ver muchas otras de lo más interesantes, incluyendo avutarda, mosquitero ibérico y verderón serrano, entre otros.

Aves de las alturas

Category: ,

El pasado 17 de junio estuvimos guiando a los pajareros alaveses José y Ekaitz por el Pirineo Occidental con intención de encontrar algunas especies de aves de montaña que no se ven todos los días. De hecho, debido a que habitualmente viajan más hacia el sur había algunas aves que no habían visto desde hacía muchos años.

José escudriña las peñas con su telescopio.
Realizamos una salida de día completo visitando diversas zonas del valle de Echo y el Prepirineo Navarro. A pesar del calor que se anunciaba las zonas de montaña tienen la ventaja de que normalmente suavizan mucho las temperaturas, con lo que pudimos disfrutar de un día muy agradable.
Un paseo por el bosque mixto de hayas y pino silvestre nos recibe con múltiples pajarillos forestales como carbonero garrapinos, agateador euroasiático, trepador azul, zorzal charlo, verderón serrano o camachuelo común. Cerca se oye brevemente un picamaderos negro. Al rato llegamos a unos roquedos donde vuelan aviones comunes, aviones roqueros, vencejos reales, canta un colirrojo tizón y, al rato, aparece ¡el treparriscos! El lugar ofrece una vista fantástica que se completa con varias aves que vuelan de un lado para otro como chovas piquirrojas y piquigualdas, alimoches, buitres leonados y 2 quebrantahuesos que vuelan durante largo tiempo ofreciéndonos un espectáculo admirable. Uno llegó a posarse en unos riscos y pudimos observarlo un rato con el telescopio apreciando cada detalle de su imponente aspecto. Al marcharnos aún pudimos ver un abejero europeo y un águila real que merodeaban por la zona y unos rebecos pirenaicos en las zonas más elevadas de las montañas.
En otra zona del valle, donde nos detuvimos a echar el picnic, una pareja de alimoches con su cría del año (ya volandera y con su preceptivo plumaje color chocolate) hicieron nuestras delicias. Como ‘sobremesa’ nos dimos un corto paseo para buscar marmotas, y tras un rato vimos una no muy lejos (hoy estaban más tímidas que de costumbre). Este paseo nos ofreció también la posibilidad de ver escribanos cerillos, más colirrojos tizones y milanos reales, entre otros.

Tuvimos la suerte de que este quebrantahuesos se posara durante un rato a nuestra vista (foto con movil a través del telescopio).
Tiempo para reponer fuerzas.

De regreso paramos en un área de monte bajo mediterráneo en el Prepirineo Navarro con la intención de ver roquero rojo, pero éste no se presentó en el rato que por ahí estuvimos. Si tuvimos la fortuna, por el contrario, de encontrarnos con escribanos hortelanos, bisbitas campestres, collalbas rubias, currucas carrasqueñas y otros pájaros de estos ambientes.
Al final un día bien aprovechado con buenos avistamientos en un entorno envidiable. Si te interesa venir a una de estas jornadas de ‘pajareo’ consúltanos.

Day-trip with José and Ekaitz to the Western Pyrenees; habitats such as beech and Scots Pine forests, cliffs, mountain grasslands and Mediterranean shrub áreas gave us the opportunnity to find birds as Subalpine Warbler, Sardinian Warbler, Tawny Pipit, Citril Finch, Egyptian Vulture, Golden Eagle, Black Woodpecker and even Lammergeier and Wallcreeper! Despite the high temperatures it turned into an awesome birding day.

Touroperadores británicos visitan la Montaña navarra

Category:

A mediados de junio de 2017 Turismo de Navarra organizó un fam-trip para touroperadores ingleses especializados en turismo activo y de observación de naturaleza a la montaña de Navarra. Mirua estuvo guiándolos durante dos jornadas, concretamente en el Valle de Ultzama y en el Parque Natural de Urbasa-Andia.

Explorando en Bosque Encantado de Urbasa.
En el valle de Ultzama centramos nuestra atención en el Bosque de Orgi (Lizaso), un robledal atlántico de fondo de valle de los que hoy en día quedan ya muy pocos. Debido a cómo se ha acondicionado este bosque resulta perfectamente accesible para todo tipo de público (incluyendo sillas de ruedas) y hace que en unos instantes te sientas inmerso en medio de su frondosidad. Son muchos los valores naturales que realzan su interés, pero el día de la visita las aves son las que más se hicieron notar, destacando el mosquitero ibérico o el milano real como las especies que más atención reclamaron a los componentes del grupo. Lástima que una tormenta hiciera que tuviéramos que abandonar el lugar antes de tiempo.

En Urbasa nos dirigimos al Bosque Encantado que nos regaló escenas de una belleza apabullante. Todos recorrimos sus recovecos de rocas, musgo, helechos y troncos en silencio disfrutando de la experiencia con todos los sentidos, siendo el comentario al salir del lugar muy significativo: “Pareciera que estás en otro mundo”. No faltó una panorámica al raso donde pastaban centenares de cabezas de ganado aprovechando el pasto fresco de montaña y terminamos en el Balcón de Obaba (o Pilatos) donde realizamos nuestro picnic admirando las vistas y, posteriormente, estudiando el ir y venir de buitres leonados, chovas piquirrojas, alimoches y otras aves rupícolas.

Increíbles formaciones y paisajes del Bosque Encantado.

We had the pleasure to guide a group of British touroperators in the mountains of Navarra in mid June. This famtrip was organized by the Navarra Tourism Board in order to promote our destination among companies specialized in nature tourism. We visited places like the Orgi Oakwood in Ultzama Valley and the Urbasa-Andia Nature Park. Mountains, forests (of different kinds), countryside and cliffs were the landscapes we saw. And we had also some time for birdwatching being Griffon Vulture, Egyptian Vulture, Red Kite, Booted Eagle, Red-billed Chough, Alpine Swift, Crag Martin, Bonelli's Warbler and Iberian Chiffchaff some of the birds we found during this brief time here.

Swedish Birders visit the Western Pyrenees - May 2017

Category: ,

We had the pleasure to guide a roup of Swedish birders of the Avifauna company last May. With this group we visited many places in the Ebro Valley and Pyrenees, but especially in the Navarra región, which is a fantastic birdwatching destination. Steppe, wetlands, forests, bushland, mountains, gorges and cliffs, rivers… all these habitats and more were scanned to reach our main target: enjoying birding in a great scenary.

The group arrived to Barcelona on the 20th of May and we made our way to Navarra in few hours. No time for birdwatching this day, but in a pair of stops and from the cars we could see many raptors like Griffon Vulture, Egyptian Vulture, Short-toed Snake Eagle and even a Golden Eagle.
The next day was dedicated to steppe birds in Southern Navarra having very good views of the Dupont’s Larks. Other good birds here were Calandra Lark, Thekla Lark, Greater Short-toed Lark, Spectacled Warbler, Black-eared Wheatear, Southern Grey Shrike and Pin-tailed Sandgrouse, but the highlight of the day was undoubtely an inmature Spanish Imperial Eagle that we saw very well three times!


This Spanish Imperial Eagle was one of the surprises in this trip, as they are very scarce in the Ebro Valley (Photo: J. Hansson).

In the next day we visited another steppe area in search of Great and Little Bustard with no luck (it’s difficult to find these birds at this time of the year… but we had to try!) but the day wasn’t bad and we found Blue Rock Thrush, Penduline Tit, Wryneck, several Short-toed Eagles, Hen Harrier, Montagu’s Harrier and more birds. In the afternoon we visited the Pitillas Lagoon, a large salty lake where we able to find Whiskered Terns, Red-crested Pochard (a short glimpse of two flying birds), a Great Bittern and a pair Ferruginous Duck (a rare bird here) very close to the main observatory.

The pair Ferruginous Duck in the Pitillas Lagoon were another big surprise for the trip.

The fourth day was dedicated to the Navarra PrePyrenees, a more hilly landscape with Mediterranean bushes, trees and farmland, but also some fantastic gorges and cliffs: Ortolan Bunting, Common Rock Thrush, Tawny Pipit, Black-eared Wheatear, Subalpine Warbler, Western Orphean Warbler, Melodious Warbler, Bonelli’s Warbler… but also raptors like Short-toed Eagles, Egyptian Vultures, Red Kites, Booted Eagles, many Griffon Vultures and two Bonelli’s Eagles!

We also enjoyed finding butterflies, like this Spanish Festoon (Zerynthia rumina) (Photo: J. Hansson)

We visited the higher Pyrenees in the two next days. This has been a very dry year and wildlife is suffering because of this, so we found poor bird and mammal activity in several places. Despite this circumstance we managed to find Red Crossbill, Water Pipit, Ring Ouzel (the gorgeous ‘alpestris’ subspecies), Alpine Chough, Red-billed Chough, Raven, Red Kite, Black Woodpecker, Alpine Swift, and the most wanted ones: Citril Finch, Lammergeier and Wallcreeper! These days were completed with many orchids, butterflies, several Pyrenean Chamois and Marmots.

We were lucky to find the Wallcreeper!

We had to point our scopes high up to see some Pyrenean Chamois. This has been a very dry year and most of them are grazing in the highest mountain grasslands.

Leaving Navarra and heading back to Catalonia we stopped in another area of the PrePyrenees. We had the opportunitty to find again many of the birds we already had seen in the previous days, but also to add species like the Black Wheatear. This seventh day had a very special moment when we saw perfectly how two Lammergeier were throwing bones and eating their fragments: an unforgetable show!

Both Bearded Vultures (or Lammergeier) landed to take some bones and eat them; they were far but we saw them very well with our scopes (Photo: J. Hansson).

In the last day we were back close to Barcelona, but before returning to the airport we had time to make two stops, one for enjoying with a pair of Bonelli’s Eagles flying up and down in a gorge, and another one to see what I had kept as a surprise for the end of the trip: some Lesser Grey Shrikes that still live in this region. Hobby, Woodchat Shrike and Roller were also seen here, so we had a great end for this 8-day trip.   

We ended our trip watching two adult Bonelli's Eagles (Photo: J. Hansson).
A finales de mayo de 2017 recibimos 12 'birders' suecos de Avifauna, con los cuáles recorrimos diversas zonas de los Pirineos Occidentales, desde la estepa hasta la alta montaña, visitando también bosques de diverso tipo, humedales, roquedos, monte mediterráneo y muchos otros hábitats. El tiempo acompañó y pudimos disfrutar de especies muy apreciadas por los observadores norteños, tales como alondra ricotí, ganga ibérica, quebrantahuesos, treparriscos, alcaudón chico, carraca, águila perdicera y hasta un águila imperial ibérica, entre otras muchas.
