I'm back. I've been away visiting the friends and family in the UK, my lens packed up and I came back with a stinking cold, worse than man flu! I managed to get this one photo of a Red Kite flying over the house before the lens died.

Scrambling on the Caldera Ridge, Sierra Nevada
A loose ridge (better as a winter route) on the Puntal de la Caldera. Gives some easy scrambling in very impressive scenery, including dramatic views of the north faces of Mulhacén and Alcazaba

Been very busy during much of September so not been around much. Apologies. I got up in the early hours of this morning to watch the lunar eclipse. It was quite spectacular. This is one shot from my efforts at  night photography.

I managed to capture this beautiful Black-eared Wheatear recently while out in the Sierra Nevada. Another bird that is heading back to Africa for the winter.

I'm a day late for this theme but thought I would share it anyway. I was out on our local patch in Spain's Sierra Nevada and saw an eagle that I did not recognise. I took some ID shots and continued on eventually bumping into Seprona (responsible for nature conservation and management). They excitedly told me that this eagle (they were watching too) was a Spanish Imperial Eagle. These eagles do not live in our part of Spain, so to see one in the Sierra Nevada was amazing, but to see such an endangered species makes it doubly amazing. The last count on this bird seems to have been done in 2011 and states that in Spain there are 279 pairs and the bird has moved into Portugal with just 3 pairs. This bird breeds nowhere else in the world. Pretty exciting day for us.

Right place, right time, right light etc etc. One of those very rare moments for me when it call comes together. The only thing done to this shot is I cropped it. I love these shy and frustrating birds. The European Bee Eaters are all moving South to their wintering grounds in Africa and everyday I think there will be no more, but everyday another group fly through. I feel sad that they are leaving us, but I shall look forward to their return in the Spring.

Today is International Vulture Awareness Day. Why do we have this day? Well click on the link and read this informative article by +Peter Jones and learn why Vultures are so important to human well-being.

"So what makes vultures so special? Well, to repeat myself and strengthen their case, you have to understand they feed mostly on carcasses of dead animals, generally not killing their own prey. As scavengers they play such an important role in the ecosystem, assisting the decomposition of dead animal matter, cleansing the environment and most importantly for us, they reduce the spread of harmful diseases. In short, there is no reason to harm this group of birds and every reason to support efforts to conserve them."

Billie has become quite the regular visitor to the campocam watering hole. She stayed for 20 minutes drinking, scratching, sitting, snuffling around :) This is just a screen capture of a video, with hunting season in full swing I don't want to put times etc on. Although she is safe on our land, you just never know if some hunter is walking around in the night.

Come on, you know you want to join us :D
#patagonia  

Following in Bonatti's Footsteps

In Jan 1958 Walter Bonatti & Carlo Mauri made a legendary attempt to climb Cerro Torre from the west on the Patagonian Icecap. That same expedition made first ascents of Cerro Mariano Moreno & the Cordon Adela range. Due to weather, remoteness & difficulty they took 15 days to reach the Cirque de las Altares at the foot of the Torre.

In November 2015 we are taking a small group (with ageing limbs, but young hearts & minds!) on that same journey. The return will be made alongside the Viedma glacier, encircling Cerro Huemul. The trip will last 7/8 days. 2 places left for those interested in joining us.

Patagonia Trek 2015
We just can't keep away. In November we return to the Patagonian Icecap. Huemul Circuit with Icecap Extension. Different route, but same amazing landscapes! Slower paced expedition, would suit ageing mountaineers/trekkers. 2 places remaining.

I think it's pretty obvious to all who follow my trail cam (campocam) videos that I am rather fond of the wild boar JJ who comes to visit. This morning he came again and I think he showed a lot more of his personality. He seemed to be in a cheeky playful mood. He made me laugh a lot in this video and, to me, behaved very similar to a dog.

It has taken a while but the Sparrows have at last decided that the campo watering hole is a great place for a pool party. Like any good pool party there was plenty of drinking and fighting ha ha. The Stone Marten also chose the right bowl to drink from this time and didn't get a soaking :)

Yay so I got to get out somewhere yesterday with the camera. I managed to fluff up every shot, near enough! Don't you just hate days like that? Here is a good example of one fluffed up shot.

It has been horribly hot in Spain since the begging of July and I have not got out anywhere with my camera, everything is hiding from the heat, including me! But campocam has been busy capturing visitors (day and night) to the campo watering hole. Yesterday was particularly busy with birds and even a Cirl Bunting came for a drink.

Another little reminder for myself of cold! It seems forever ago that I was cold, cool would do fine, but to feel some cold right now would be wonderful. Our Kamchatka expedition 2013.

Excited to get a mystery solved. Campocam recorded a very short video of an animal back in June, but it was only of the animal moving away. There was much discussion as to what the animal might be. Well last night it came back and we have our answer. It is a Badger :)

We have been in a 3 week heatwave here in Spain our 2nd one in succession and with a 3rd apparently to start next week. I have resorted to looking at photos of cooler times, like this one from our 2011 Patagonia icecap expedition.

Having been attacked and stung by a wasp today I am going to celebrate Bees. Bees are good, I like bees, you can walk past bees without getting stung! Here is a bee doing what bees do best.

I have been seeing this bird around for quite a while now. Yesterday, while checking on wildfire that has been burning, I was lucky to have this Booted Eagle fly over my head :)

JJ spent 3/4 hour in the campo last night drinking, making mud baths and snoozing! I think I may need to provide him with a paddling pool. He is one happy pig :)

I love my wild boar (fondly known as Juan Jabali). I had been a little worried about him as I had not seen him for a very long time and another smaller wild boar had been visiting. I needn't have worried. I have been putting fruit and water out for the birds during this very hot spell. Not one bird has taken up the offer but last night JJ visited, had a drink, ate the fruit, raided +Pepe Badaje vegetables, knocked the water bowl over, had a snooze in the mud bath and then raided my sweetcorn for pudding. Love him :)

Am I aloud to say that I adore a shot I took myself? It may not be perfect but for me I love it. I think there is such a story in this one moment in time.
