Pulau Ubin - The other way, Singapore June 2014
I have been handicapped in the 10,000
Birds year list. For a bird to qualify on the list, it must be seen from a site
that I have not visited before, or for at least 5 years. The idea being that I
was becoming set in my ways and needed a push to explore bey...

Costanera Sur, Buenos Aires, June 2014
It is hard to know which moment to pick
as the highlight of this post. It could have been the long-awaited Great Grebe or
the surprise Plumbeous
rail . After looking at Red-fronted Coots all morning, it came as a shock
to find that they qualified for the re...

Powai Lake, Mumbai, May 2014
Powai
Lake was my outing of choice in Mumbai this week. 7kms from the airport, it was
the easy option on a trip that has an inconvenient schedule. We didn't get out
of the airport until nearly midday which is not a good time to brave the
traffic to Borivali...

Parque Ecologico do Tiete, Sao Paulo, May2014
If you travel from the airport into
Sao Paulo, you may well pass the Parque Ecologico do Tiete. From the road it
appears to be an unremarkable wasteland from which oozes the stinking Rio
Tiete, like a seeping wound. On a hot day, the river is apparent as so...

Buenos Aires - pre-post, June 2014
A trip to Argentina is always
exciting, but for some reason I always seem to go at the same time of year. I
am a couple of weeks late during this visit as May turns to June and the
weather has been cooler than I recall. It was beautifully bright during the

Ibirapuera Park, Sao Paulo, Brazil, May 2014
It was very pleasing to catch up with
the Blonde-crested Woodpecker again
in Ibirapuera Park this morning. The park is perfect for an easy stroll when
home time comes before lunch time and the common species are reliable and easy
to find here. Most of the b...

Paulo during the journey into town from the airport. The ridge of forested
hills has been protected and designated as a State Reserve. My issue today was
that it is only open to the public on weekends and ...

Fort Mason, San Francisco, Apr 2014
An early
flight home limited my options again this morning and another cop-out to Fort
Mason was the soft choice. I hoped to find the Wandering Tattler and get a
flight shot to add a bit of spice to an up-coming 10,000 Birds post , but had no
luck in that r...
