The Serins Are Singing, A Sign Of The Algarve Spring

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

Yes, it may only be mid-January, however, this is the time everything starts coming to life in the Algarve, particularly here in the hills.

The first sign of spring is the European Serins singing and a large flock (at least 50) have arrived here at the Quinta.

I took a wander around the garden this afternoon to grab some reference shots of both the female and male. They are very similar except the male has much more yellow on his breast and head.

As you may have noticed, there has been a lack of wildlife shots and posts recently as I have been busy with other projects, however, I will be making some time to get out an about in the next week. Firstly, I will be working out a way to get up close and personal with these tiny birds, but for now, here’s two shots showing the difference between the sexes.

Here is the female….

This Week’s Featured Print: Dusk With A Great Story!

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

This week’s featured print is a shot of dusk at the amazing seaside village of Burgau. Whilst I was taking this shot, I could hear the group of people sat at the table near the slope to the beach commenting that they hoped that “The photograph won’t fall from the cliff”. I was in a safe place but it may have looked a bit dangerous from their position.

Fast forward a few days and I was displaying this image as part of my stand at the Aljezur International School Christmas Fair. The group had came to the fair and noticed the photo, when they read the information badge showing the date, they instantly realised that it was them in the photography. Of course, they purchased an A3 sized framed print as a memory!

The dusk colours were amazing that evening which made the photograph a great image of a great coastal gem.

As always, the Featured Image has a discount across all variations.

The Pine Processionary Caterpillar can be a real issue here in Southern Europe and even more so in the Algarve.

Towards the end of December and into January/February, you may notice silky Spider-Web-like nests appearing in the Pine Trees. They have a hidden danger.
