Photo above: Bosco Dies 7.1.2007


Rüppell's Vulture* Gyps rueppellii (1)
(1) Cádiz. A bird was seen on 11.1 in company of two Black Vultures Aegypius monachus, one Lammergeier Gypaetus barbatus (well away from Pyrenees!) and a large flock of Griffon Vultures Gyps fulvus at Muladar de la Peña, close to the ornithological station of Colectivo Cigüeña Negra, Tarifa, Cádiz (Salvador Solís; communicated by Paco Montoya).

African Crake* Crecopsis egregia(1) FOURTH FOR SPAIN AND THE WP
(1) Gran Canaria The fourth bird for the WP and Spain reached Gran Canaria island at La Garita, Telde on 12.1. It was collected alive and brought to the recovery center where, unlike the 3 previous birds, this SURVIVED and will be released into the wild (in the island) in few days (Pascual Calabuig). As in the previous cases it reached the island coinciding with a severe storm between the Canaries and Africa involving fog and strong winds. See photos below and a thumbnail here (P.Calabuig)


Photo above: Pascual Calabuig 12.1.2007

Allen's Gallinule* Porphyrio alleni (1,2)
(1) Huelva The adult found at El Rocío marshes on 21.12.2006 (Luis García/PN Doñana), searched for but not relocated on 22 and 29.12.2006 and finally relocated on 4.1 (Paco Chiclana, Mario Martín). See a photo below. On 5.1. it was seen and photographed again at the same place (José Luis Arroyo, Juan Luis Barroso, Estela Gil, José Carlos González).See a photo below and three thumbnails in the right hand column here.Seen again on 13.1 at the same place (see another photo below) (Jose Antonio Sencianes, José Angel Campos, Antonio Tamayo).Still visible on 17.1 (Chris Batty, Stuart Piner) and 18.1 (Paco Chiclana). Severe doubts have arisen on this bird origin: the bird showed damaged primary tips and lack of secondaries (see thumbnails here) and was very tame, eating almost from hand (J.Sagardia, P.Chiclana). Besides, another escape, Actophilornis africana was recorded at Doñana too, not far from the Allen's site (Pablo Fernández). The bird was showing well on 21.1 (Richard Bonser) and 22.1 (Martien Brand), see a photo below. On 24.1 it was unsuccesfully looked for. The party of 8 visiting birders were told by a local that on 23.1 the bird had been picked up by a man coming with a van with a logo of a bambino. (?¿) (communicated by Paco Chiclana).

The corpse showed an impact in its head. It is unknown if it died caused by the crash, a fact that seems at least possible (J.A.Lorenzo in litt. and editorial comment)

(2) Girona An adult ringed bird in the right tibia, different from (3) but possibly one lingering individual having been seen elsewhere in Europe (and perhaps in this same place in years 1998, 1999 and 2000) was found at Blanes harbour, Girona, on 8.1 (Xavier Larruy, Xesco Macià). See a photo below (X.Larruy) and a thumbnail here.This bird is probably the same that had overwintered here seven years ago and that in the meantime had been ringed in Germany and, later overwintered for two consecutive years in Italy. Finally, on 30.10.2006 it was in Switzerland (2nd for the country) on its way to the Mediterranean, back to Blanes again!. The story of this bird is at EBN Italia here.
