The Epic Journey Begins – The Great Autumn Migration (Part one)

Short-toed Eagle - Valle de Genal, Andalucia, Spain

Short-toed eagle

Look into the skies above Southern Spain; what do you see? Rather like the owls, in the first chapter of Harry Potter, that suddenly began to appear everywhere; birds of prey that usually wouldn’t be seen at such close proximity to us are popping up all over the place. We’ve spotted them perched above supermarket car parks and on various urban buildings in the last few days. We’ve seen them flying down towards Spain’s south coast. Bee-eaters,  warblers, swifts, swallow and martins by the tens-of-thousands.

 White Stork - Tarifa, Costa de la Luz, Strait of Gibraltar

What are they doing? Rather like those of us that have preferred what Spain has to offer as opposed to our native countries; these birds likewise choose Iberia or other more northern European countries to mate and raise fledglings. They arrived in spring in large flocks, having flown northwards from a range of countries in Africa. Here, they have gorged themselves on abundant local food supplies that provide the energy needed both to produce a brood of chicks and sustain themselves during the arduous process of rearing them until they are ready to leave the nest. That task having been completed and summer drawing to a close, the birds will be preparing to undertake the reverse journey to over-winter thousands of kilometres to our south.

Black Kites & Honey Buzzards

The birds of prey (raptors) are not the only type of winged travellers shouldering the migration. White storks are everywhere and you may have spotted smaller birds flocking together now that have spent summer in pairs feeding their chicks: Bee-Eaters are gathering and House Martins, Swallows and Swifts are among such noticeable birds as their nest sites are found mainly attached to human habitation. These smaller passerine species perform their migration differently to the larger birds and next week we will explain how and why in: The Great Autumn Migration (part two): Homeward-Bound Travellers Challenge The Powers of Nature.

Acquiring a nature reserve was not exactly what I had in mind

Nature reserve

Hundreds of wildflowers including 18 species orchid, dozens of butterflies, lizards, snakes, scorpions, tarantulas, broomrapes of every description, dozens of nesting bee-eaters and crag martins. With many griffon vultures, booted and short-toed eagles overhead this nature reserve like most of Andalucia is absolutely brimming with biodiversity.

For the past 3-years I’ve totally in awe the shear biodiversity here in Andalucia. I can say that 100sq metres is Andalucia has  more species than 10 sq kilometers in the UK it’s simply over-flowing with flora and fauna species. So when I was asked by the local landowner would I like to buy some land I could not resist so 600 euros well spent I am now the proud owner of my own delightful nature reserve comprising of all of 2.1 hectares. I now feel totally responsible for its welfare and in truth I am…. quite some responsibility and not one I was expecting or had in mind.

Cricket stretching its hind-leg, Gaucin, Malaga, Andalcuia, Spain

After a lng deep sleep and a dew-laden morning a cricket as yet unidentified performs a hind-leg stretch.

European Bee-eaters at nest hole

Unquestionably Europe’s most exotic and colourful avian specie we have 17 pairs nesting this summer.

Oleander

Oleander shrubs in full bloom are everywhere though my search for the Oleander Hawkmoth caterpillar to date has proved to be fruitless.

Scabious - Gaucin, Andalucia, Spain

Thousands upon thousands of Field Scabious flourish in the rich limestone soils a simple handheld technique is all that is required to convey the essence of a wildflower meadow in Andalucia.

Swallowtail

An impressive swallowtail butterfly is a common everyday sight, though their close relative the Scarce Swallowtail is in fact the more frequent observed species.
