This morning I was able to verify that the migration of waders is in full process in El Abra. If last week it seemed that even the step appeared timidly in the form of 2 or 3 species, the current diversity is high for what is usually common in the area.
There are still at least 2 of the 3 needles I have seen last week, one of them ringed in Holland whose code Iñaki and Egoitz Ikaza read.
Numenius phaeopus In the very beach of La Bola continues the curling antler Numenius phaeopus ., one of my favorite shorebirds, feeding on the little sea crabs that swarm among the rocks. Numerius phaeopus . Next to them were a mixed flock of 2 large plovers Charadrius hiaticula and 8 common correlates Calidris alpina < / i>, most of the specimens with the nuptial plumage.
Common Calidris alpina .Another species that has increased its numbers is the common tringa totanus, with 2 species in La Bola and 9 in Lamiako . They are precious with the bridal plumage, although the difference with the winter livery is certainly subtle, but with more nuances.
Common Archibebe Tringa totanus .
With its plumage is very beautiful, together with the contrast of the legs and orange peaks make it a beautiful limicola. is the group of common archibebes that rested in Lamiako in the few rocks that were discovered almost in the high tide.In Lamiako also I could see with Iñaki Ikaza a mixed side of 9 big and small plochlets 6 common correlates, habitual species but that give much vidilla to the Abra. Now the bird is very entertaining for this part of the coast of Biscay.
Charadrius hiaticula .
However, it is the Arriluce dock that could offer me potentially greater satisfactions because last week we saw two fat nuptial correlates, species that I have little sight; however, they were not there today. Those who did not miss his appointment were the Calidris alba tridactyls, of which there were 2 specimens scurrying along the blocks of the dock accompanied by a common solitary correlation.

We run the tridactyl and common correlates feeding together.
We are currently working on the development of the Aridis spp. a gray plover pluvialis squatarola adorned with an intermediate plumage was fed while trying to avoid the waves. Even 2 moths Phalacrocorax aristotelis rested near the shore of Ereaga beach. Phylacrocorax aristotelis (it seems that the one on the left is a 2 c and the one on the right an adult.One that does not abandon us is the dark correi Calidris maritima that has been around for some time, perhaps it is the same as the winter has passed on the dock; it will not be long before he leaves for his breeding regions in Scandinavia.
Dark coridries Calidris maritima .The Arenaria interpres stone stones do not leave us either, having counted today 7 specimens with winter, intermediate and nuptial plumage.
Finally, note that last week was seen a cobweb correlated by José Ángel in La Bola, a limicola that is not easy to observe in Bizkaia.
