Goldfinches

This period is a good time to go to photograph the goldfinches on the beach. Today at the mouth of the river Cesano there were many to feed on the seeds of Beach cocklebur
(Xanthium orientale subsp. italicum) with some greenfinch too.

It ‘s not impossible to get close enough to make good photographic compositions,  the important is to have patience until  “you become an anonymous part of the landscape”.

Prati di Nocria

From the Strada delle Scalette you can see a plateau on top of a hill not too high between Monte Catria and Monte Strega,  saturday morning December 12, 2015 I went there.

I discovered one of the most beautiful places to observe the Monte Catria ridge, after an hour of easy climb we overlooking on a stunning scenery.

The peak is perfect for to watching with binoculars from all sides in search of wildlife,
From Piano degli Angeli to Monte Strega, from Monte Mura to Costa Calecchie right up to the Bosco Rotondo.

To come back absolutely.
