- O dia começou ensolarado...e tem passarinho cantando aqui perto.
- 🇨🇵Voici un oiseau en DANGER : Le tarier des prés. ⚠️⚠️⚠️
Il était autrefois commun et typique des milieux prairiaux de basse-montagne et aussi de plaine. 🌐🧭
UNE CHUTE DE POPULATION :📉
Avec la mise en place, par le muséum, du Suivi Temporel des Oiseaux Communs 🐦🐤🐦ce déclin a pu être révélé de manière plus précise avec une estimation de -72%📉 ⁉️ depuis 1989 et -39% 📉depuis 2001. 🆘️🐦⚠️💀
Cette chute spectaculaire « s'inscrit parfaitement dans la tendance des espèces de milieux agricoles 🚜 et de répartition nordique.🧭 Comme pour le Pipit farlouse, c'est une espèce menacée de disparition des plaines françaises à brève échéance ».⏳💀
POURQUOI CETTE DISPARITION ?🤔
Il niche traditionnellement dans les prairies humides 💧🌿où, aux dégâts naturelles engendrés par des prédateurs et les conditions météorologiques 🌞 s'ajoute la destruction des nichées par les activités humaines👷♂️🚜💀. La fenaison précoce permise par le développement des techniques agronomiques, le drainage des prés humides 💧et l'appauvrissement des variétés utilisées lors des semis de prairies artificielles🌾🌾🌾 affectent directement l'entomofaune (les insectes )🦋🕷🐞 et en conséquence le Tarier des prés qui s'en nourrit.
🇬🇧Here is a bird in danger: The whinchat. ⚠️⚠️⚠️ It was once common and typical of low-mountain and also lowland meadow environments. 🌐
A FALL OF POPULATION: 📉
With the establishment, by the Museum, of the Time Tracking of Common Birds, this decline has been revealed more precisely with an estimate of -72% 📉 since 1989 and -39% since 2001. ️🆘️
WHY THIS DISAPPEARANCE?🤔 It nests traditionally in the wet meadows💧🌿 where the natural damage 🌞 is added the destruction of the broods by the human activities👷♂️. Early haymaking permitted by the development of agronomic techniques,🚜 the drainage of wet meadows💧 and the depletion of varieties used during artificial grassland🌾🌾 sowing directly affect the entomofauna 🦋🐞 and consequently the whinchat that feed on it.

- Love is in the air at Española. Watch the local dating scene, “waved albatross-style”
The waved albatross is the largest bird in Galapagos with a wingspan of up to two and a half metres. One of their most interesting behaviours is their courtship dance. Marianne from Aves Travels visited Española on May 31st and experienced this beautiful dating ritual first-hand. When to see them? From April until December! #Galapagos #albatross #birdwatching #expeditioncruise #love #nature #wildlife #bucketlist #espanola #ecuador

- I'm a couple of weeks out from turning 45 😬 I have absolutely zero idea how that happened. I mean, I still feel like a teenage girl at heart. Actually I feel like a teenage Japanese girl at heart, but either way I feel much, MUCH younger than I actually am. It's weird though, all of a sudden I'm noticing how much younger everyone around me is.
I went into a chemist today to buy old people medicines and when the pharmacist served me, it was all I could do to stop myself looking around for her parents. She looked YOUNG, that fresh and unconfident kind of young that makes me feel both extremely jealous that I'm not back there in that age again but also extremely happy that I not only survived but I lived it all before there was the internet on which to capture, for all time, evidence of my misspent youth (*ahem, early thirties after my divorce 😂) I bought myself lunch today, in one of my favourite little restaurants, eating alone and feeling like an absolute boss because I no longer feel self conscious about those kind of things. I also picked up the local tourist mag and found that one of my articles had been republished in there, and I sat reading my words and I have to admit, feeling kind of proud. No matter how hard I tried to make the connection for those around me, (I didn't quite get brave enough to hold the photo of me up to my face, while yelling, "Recognise this girl?!" to fellow diners) it remained my own little secret. Although I did end up sending a photo of the article to the husband so he could send me virtual affirmations 😂😂😂
Got a quick little photo shoot in with 2 lovely cormorants: the Great Cormorant and then a much smaller Little Black Cormorant who flew in and landed right beside it, and they both had their turquoise eyes shining in the sun so it was a nice little moment. It started to rain at one point which always makes me feel like I'm out there doing the hard stuff, you know, being all like Sir David out in the field, or at least, one of Sir David's cameramen 😂. The Great Cormorant took off after a while, and the Little Black bounced around a few times trying to make the most of the occasional sun.
