Whooper Swan Cygnus cygnus (1)

(1) Lugo. There was am adult bird on 7.8 at Outeiro de Rei, Lugo, at rivers Ladra and Miño junction (Pablo Quintana)

Canada Goose Branta canadensis (1,2)
(1) Lugo The bird of nominal ssp. at Riocaldo lagoons, Begonte, Lugo
remained there on 16.8 (Antón Pérez y Javier Gómez). See two thumbnails here.
(2) A Coruña. A bird was seen and photographed at Cecebre reservoir, A Coruña on 13.8 (Ignacio Aparicio). This bird is very probably the escaped individual seen at Villagudín reservoir from august 2005 carrying a pink PVC ring. The goose remained there until summer 2006 when it moved to Cecebre. It stayed at Cecebre in 2007-2008 when it lost its PVC ring, so it now has no sign of coming from captivity despite it's almost sure the same individual (comments kindly provided by Xabier Varela).

Pale-bellied Brent Goose Branta bernicla hrota (1)

A Coruña. On 28.8 a bird was seen migrating W from Estaca de Bares, A Coruña (Antonio Sandoval, Dani López Velasco, Guillermo Rodríguez, Marco García, Joan Ferrer, Albert Cama, Marcel Gil, Manolo García, Oscar llama, Alfonso Valderas, Ricardo Hevia et al).

topoWood Duck Aix sponsa (1-2)
(1-2) Tenerife An eclipse male and a female, both moulting, were seen in good shape at Erjos ponds, Tenerife, on 18.8 (Thierry Jansen). Origin unknown. See a thumbnail here.

American Black Duck Anas rubripes (1)

Asturies An individual reached Ria de la Villa, Villaviciosa, Asturies on 29.8 (Adolfo Villaverde)


(Fea's) Petrel Pterodroma c.f. feae (1)
(1) A Coruña. An individual assigned to this species was seen migrating W from Estaca de Bares, A Coruña, on 27.8 (Daniel López Velasco,Marco García Gala,Guillermo Rodríguez,Joan Ferrer,Albert Cama,Manolo García,Marcel Gil,Oscar Llama,David Martínez Lago,Alfonso Valderas,Ricardo Hevia and a dutch birder). So far no accepted records for Spain! (ed. comment).

Wilson's Storm Petrel Oceanites oceanicus (1-4)
(1-4) A Coruña. At least four birds were seen in a pelagic off Cariño, A Coruña (Antón Pérez, Javier Gómez and others -names yet to be received-). See a thumbnail here.

White Pelican Pelecanus onocrotalus (1)
(1) Madrid. An unknown origin individual, but probably an escape, was seen at El Pardo reservoir, Madrid, on 24.8 (Miguel Angel Sánchez)

Presumed Hybrid Western Reef x Little Egret Egretta gularis x garzetta (1,2,3,4,5,6)
(1) Cádiz. There was a dark bird, seen also in previous years, at Codo de la Esparraguera, Sanlucar de Barrameda, Cádiz, on 11.8 (Paco Chiclana, Fernando del Valle) and 13.8 (Paco Chiclana). See a thumbnail here. Still around on 17.8 (Paco Chiclana, Beatriz Chiclana). Seen again on 25.8 (Paco Chiclana, Andreu Requejo)

(2) Gipuzkoa. An odd juvenile almost white egret was seen and photographed at Plaiaundi, Irun, Gipuzkoa on 10.8. It had a large, deep based, bill and pale legs (Alfredo Herrero, Miguel Angel Lopez de Armentia; Ricardo Rodríguez). See two photos below (Ricardo Rodríguez). Like in the case of the July 2009 whitish bird at Cádiz, which was almost white and recalling this individual, this Plaiaundi bird was quoted to show also a few dark feathers, in this case in the mantle, recalling some gularis gene flow. Seen again on 12.8 morning (Serafín Alarcón). Still around on 15.8 (Juan Carlos Andrés). See more photos here (where no black feathering is visible, a fact confirmed by other authors: since the closeness of gularis and garzetta, producing viable offspring, the presence of some gularis gene in this bird is perhaps an option, the other more logical being an aberrant garzetta. But those aberrant garzetta could be, simply again individuals showing some light -structural in this case, a few feathers in an otherwise white bird- characters of gularis gularis, falling within this wide area of the hybrid option, ed.comment)

(3) Valencia. A 'typical' white-headed bird was seen at El Romaní ricefields, Sollana, Albufera de Valencia on 17.8 (Bosco Dies, Carlos Oltra). This bird has been seen lingering around these ricefields since last July by the same two authors. See a photo below (C.Oltra).

(4) Barcelona. A dark grey & white individual was seen at Filipines marsh, Llobregat delta, Barcelona on 16.8 (Sergi Torné, Sergi Bueno) and 17.8 (Ferran López). There are a couple of photos in Llobregat Delta Bird News blog here.

(5) Tarragona. A typical individual was seen at la Tancada saltpans, Delta de l'Ebre, Tarragona where an almost resident bird occurs the last years. The individual was seen on 6.8 (Jorge de la Cruz), photo here; 19 & 23.8 (Josep Tantull, Roser Solé). It was showing a rather different plumage to those of previous months but it could be related to moult and wear. See a photo below and thumbnails here (Josep Tantull)


Photo above:© Josep Tantull. 19-23.8.2009

(6) Cáceres. The individual seen on 18.7 at Charca de Los Gañanes, Guijo de Coria, Cáceres was been moving between that and Portaje reservoir, where last recorded on 7.8 (Sergio Mayordomo).

Lesser Flamingo Phoenicopterus minor (1-3,4,5-6)
Toledo There were three at Laguna de Villacañas, Toledo on 5-6.8 (Xurxo Piñeiro, Maria José Valencia). Of these three birds, TWO were ringed birds and at least ONE (ringed AS) was a proven escape which has been lingering around Spain for three years at least (see a 2007 post in the Rarebirdspain blog here). These birds were recorded in the nearby Ciudad Real mancha lagoons last month.

(4) Toledo. On 5-6.9 another individual different from (1-3) was seen at Laguna del Taray, Toledo (Xurxo Piñeiro, Maria José Valencia).

(5-6) Almería. There were two unringed birds at Cabo de Gata saltpans, Almería, on 7.8 (Ruben Vlot et al). See a photo below. The birds remained in the area on 17.8 (Delfín González). See two photos below. Still there on 28.8 (Delfín González)

Rüppell's Vulture Gyps rueppellii (1-2)
(1-2) Cádiz. Two birds were seen and photographed at Ojen valley about 4km before the Barrios 'end', Cádiz at around 11.00 a.m. on 14.8 (Phil Chantler, Jack Chantler)
. See a photo below (Phil Chantler). One of these birds may have been the same seen at Santuario de la Luz on the morning of 17.8 and almost certainly the same bird that afternoon close to the La Pena watchpoint (John Cantelo and four Dutch birders). On 19.8 two immatures were recorded at Sierra de Enmedio, Tarifa and very probably are the two birds featured here (Óscar Llama, Antonio Ceballos).

Gyps rueppellii

Long-legged Buzzard Buteo rufinus (1-2)
(1) Gibraltar On 1.8 two birds were seen over Gibraltar (Mario Mosquera).

Saker Falco cherrug (1) SECOND FOR SPAIN (and first for Cat.A)
(1) Girona, Lleida, Tarragona, Zaragoza, Navarra A juvenile from an Hungarian LIFE project with a satellite transmitter made its way from Hungary across S Europe to NE Spain, entering Spain on 30.7. That day the bird crossed the border around midday to be radio located at Vall de Camprodón, Ripollés, Girona at 13h. It flew SW to the San Ramón – Calaf area at Segarra county, Lleida, an area of extensive plains and cereal agriculture where it remained that night. During its second day in Spain, it left Lleida province to head S for the Montblanc area, Conca de Barberà, Tarragona where it was located at 10 AM but it continued flying this time SW, through the coastal sierras to the Ebro river basin around Flix and Ascó villages, Ribera d’Ebre, Tarragona (13 hours). It continued this time Eastwards, entering the core of Ebro basin steppes at Aragón region, and was recorded at Belchite steppes, S Zaragoza at 19h. It presumably remained that night there. On the 1st of August the bird was located at 10 AM a bit NE of the steppe area, around Cariñena. Again on the move it was heading NE to the limit of Navarra and La Rioja communities and around 13h it was near Alfaro and Peralta. Again an open near-steppic cerealist area. The last up-to-date record was from 19h when Piros was heading NW within Navarra and it was in a wide area around Olite and Tafalla, which is also a credited area for Lesser Kestrels (Falco naumanni) within Navarra region. Read the full story with links, maps and photos at Rare Birds in Spain Blog here. The bird moved further W, deeper into Spain, the first 5 days of August: on 4.8 it entered Burgos province and slept at Villalonquéjar,near Burgos city. On 5.8 the bird moved further W through Tierra de Campos and entered Palencia. Could this be the 1st Hungarian vagrant to the USA given this flight rhythm? :-). In the locations from 14th August, Piros the saker is more or less staying in the wide area known as Tierra de Campos, within Valladolid province. The wide area would be between Becilla de Valderaduey and Villalón de Campos, near Villacid de Campos. It has been moving around the wide area always returning to a same spot. Piros was seen and photographed for the first time in Spain on 24.8 at Castilla-León community. Exact location is not given for safety reasons (Juan Sagardia). See more photos in Juan Sagardias blog here and two below courtesy of the author (J.Sagardia)..
