Blogging by Marius

I hadn’t been in touch with my friend Marius for a couple of years. Back when I was researching for “Where the birds are in northeast Spain” Marius selflessly provided me with information on where to find certain birds in his Tarragona homeland (Baix Camp and Alt Camp, Catalonia) and also invited me to help myself to his cherries whenever I was in Farena in the summer.  So I rang him and we chatted for a while about the Bonelli’s Eagle, his motorbike, my second book and his cherries.

I also found out that he has blog (or bloc as he puts it in Catalan). Follow this link to find out more about Marius and his relationship with the natural world around him:

If you only understand English then be prepared – it’s in Catalan. In fact true to his Catalan roots Marius pokes a bit of fun at me for the name of my website. But it’s only a bit of fun, and I can forgive him as long as I can sneak into his garden and pick his cherries every June after doing my Common Bird Count at Farena.
