When the sea becomes a desert

10,000 Birds

I associate different times of the year with particular birds and bird movements. In some cases, I have been following these events since childhood and they have become a part of my life. One such period has just started and will continue into September. As the climatic conditions over the Mediterranean become stable in the summer months, the water column becomes very stratified and little nutrient and plankton gets to the surface.

To fly or to be invisible: a birder’s perspective

10,000 Birds

I have always found the question about which of the two superpowers to choose – to be able to fly, or to be invisible – an intriguing one. For me, it has come down to a choice between extroversion – flying – and introversion – invisibility. How to answer this question from a birder’s perspective? My hunch is that most birders are more on the introversion side of the whole spectrum, though I am sure there are many exceptions to this (hello Peter!).
