Happy Christmas from the two of us


Hi everyone, Can we first of all wish you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Healthy New Year. It is hard to believe that we are nearly into 2010 and producing our 5th Christmas edition of the magazine. Hopefully next year will be a better one as 2009 has been a difficult year for everyone, but for Gran Alacant it’s self we have seen some very good things happening. The childrens new playing area’s, new Petanca rinks, many tree’s planted, and the on going building work of the new Park, the area in front of El Clot being revamped and the closing in of the Sports Hall. There are more good plans in the pipeline for Gran Alacant so hopefully next year we will see even more work going on here. In the magazine this month there are places advertised for you to book your Christmas Lunch, also for choosing the place to see in 2010, so we hope you enjoy the Festivities this Christmas Time. For our front cover picture, we could not find a snow scene of Gran Alacant!!! so have cheated. The picture was supplied to us by our daughter and son-in-law, Kelly and Darren who live in Canada, suffice to say, they have no shortage of snow scenes. Have a good month, Barry and Sandra

We at your Gran Alacant Advertiser continue to bring you all of the news from the Gran Alacant Councillor, Loreto Cascales, as we have since May 2005.

The first matter on the agenda, was to inform us, that another sum of money is to be released from Central Government, meetings are taking place to decide the best use for it. The work going on to improve the edge of the clot with a path and cycleway, wes interupted on Wednesday 18th November, where 250 plants waiting to be planted, were stolen from the side of the road. The piece of land near the Carabasi bars that was a pathway through to Arenales is now to be planted with trees, this side of the Elche Town Hall fencing. The clearance of the top soil there has had to be taken very carefully as there are major sewage workings under that particular area. There are so many good things that go on around GA that we often know nothing about. The weekend of November 21st saw more tree

planting taking place along the road from the GA Centre towards the Post Office. There is some bare land there, behind the bus stop, where volunteers

were planting 1500 trees and plants.. Nice to see the comunity involved. The project is a joint venture between our

Town Hall and the Provincinal Town Hall of Alicante. Food and drinks were available to the volunteersWe mentioned a sunken drain cover which is a danger to cars and particualy moto-cyclists. It is just as you turn right at the junction from the bowls club, to the Noreuga turning. WE were at the GA Commercial Centre car park, where a lady was in distress after having her purse stolen from her handbag. Her biggest problem was what to do next. Who do you contact. We have an area police car, almost always on Gran Alacant. If you ring 96 541 11 03 you will be put through to a person who speaks several languages who can then contact the GA police car for immediate involvement, also if you have an emergency that needs either the ambulance or the fire brigade, or police, ring 112. Maybe worthwhile for us all to keep a note of these numbers. Whilst on this subject, we asked if there was any way that the police would


nominate us a community office as in some other areas of Spain. Someone we could all relate to and possible build up a relationship in helping one another.. We were told that when the new pathways were originally laid there was no money for watering the trees with a permanent watering system. We know it is a bit late now, but, as you can see, all 4 km length of trees are now having a system installed now extra monies have become available. The New Park is making good progress and it is hoped this will be one of the

an entrance opposite the post office

flagships on our urbanisation. We have news and pictures in this edition about the tram service that is gradually being built to run along much of our coastline. There is to be a station stop in our area, possibly by the petrol station on Gran Alacant. This will link up to the airport, Santa Pola’s new bus station, and on southward. You will also eventually be able to use it to travel to Alicante and well beyond in a northerly direction. This building work will be on going and is expected to take several years to complete. Baile bnuses have confirmed to us that they will continue with the orbital bus around Gran Alacant throughout the winter. So if its too cold for the train, you will have an alternative. They are hoping to get a timetable to us at some point. When the dead trees opposite Altomar 1 are replaced, they will not use “pine trees”. The cry has gone up in the Town Hall from our magazine and our readers, NO PINE TREES PLEASE. We were contacted about an abandoned car which has been in situ for a couple of years. We will get a photo and number plate number to Loreto, so the car can be removed We were hoping to publish the Fiesta programme over the Christmas period, but, unfortunately it was not ready before we went to press. We hope you all have a lovely Christmas and thank you all for making our magazine so popular. If there is anything you would like to see in our publication, just give us a call.

Hello everyone, welcome to December始s issue. Can I take this opportunity to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year.

As Christmas will soon be upon us again I thought it would be a good idea to offer some ideas on what to buy for that special someone in your life. It is sometimes very difficult to think of something different, or something that they would like. Well here are some great gift ideas to make life a bit easier for you.

Gift vouchers are a wonderful gift idea for anyone; they can choose a treatment of their choice, for example:

A luxurious massage. Ease away those aches and pains, feel rejuvenated, relaxed and calm. This is a great gift for all age groups. A Germaine de Capuccinni luxury facial. This can be either for the woman or man in your life. A facial is a wonderful way in which to keep the skin looking and feeling younger. Chocolate facials available, yummy!!!!!

Germain de Capuccinni have gift ideas all wrapped up. If you purchase a face cream you will receive an amazing free gift all beautifully wrapped - a must for the lady in your life.

Body scrubs. These are particularly good for getting the body exfoliated, leaving the skin feeling totally cleansed and rejuvenated. Mmm heaven!!!!!

Please feel free to either call into my salon or contact me on the number on my advert below. Have a wonderful holiday Dott.

Merry Christmas

Already you are reading our last article of 2009 – what a year, and it has passed so quickly. I hope the world never faces so many crises in 2010 and the longer term….. especially with regard to finances and the economy. We can now look forward to better times in 2010 and beyond as the world emerges into a “new financial order”. We will be taking a few months off writing for you between January and March but expect to be back with up to date information and interesting articles in late Winter/early Spring. For all those who have contacted us and who we have been able to help and advise – thank you for your interest in our services and your support, it makes our job so rewarding. If you have not yet been in touch, why not start 2010 in good shape - thereʼs still time to call us before the festivities!! Christmas is a time for taking the “foot off the accelerator” for a couple of weeks and so we will be closed for business for two weeks although still responding to telephone enquiries and emails as normal.

Our family tries to remember the true celebrations of Christmas. For us, we have three children and one grand-daughter, so my wife and I, along with the family, will be gathering together and enjoying a chilly break near St Davidʼs in Wales. This is an isolated and spiritual place – the smallest city in the UK. It is more akin to a large village than a city or town. If you ever get the chance, do visit the cathedral as although modest in size, is one of the most atmospheric in Britain, and home to the casket of Walesʼ patron saint, St David.

Having lived and worked in Spain for over seven years now, we thought it time our youngest child saw snow for the first time, so we are definitely hoping for the traditional white Christmas. The last one I remember was about 1979 I think!

To all readers, our staff and family wish you a peaceful and happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year. We look forwarding to writing for you again in 2010. Chris or his colleagues are available on one of the numbers below. Please donʼt wait until itʼs too late, seek independent financial advice now.

MR LAMB IS BACK IN LA MARINA, this time, in the village. Leave the N332 at the first turning signposted La Marina, when approaching from Gran Alacant. Through the village he is on the right, past the third set of traffic lights, easy to find.

La Marina..VILLAGE The Royal British Legion has been helping the Serving, ex-Service personnel, their widows and dependants since 1921. It is probably most famous for its Poppy Appeal and Remembrance activities. Here in Gran Alacant, your branch has been actively supporting these areas. Due to the generosity of the people, the businesses and clubs the sum raised this year was a staggering 3273 Euro. Of this amount the Remembrance Variety Show alone raised a total of 1070 Euro and the feedback from the audience was that the Show was a great success. We would also like to thank all the Acts who gave their services Free of Charge. This money remains in Spain and in part funds the Welfare case beneficiaries, of which there are some 150,000 possible candidates just here in Spain. Many Thanks for your help. The next meeting is scheduled for 1 December 2009 in the Norwegian Club and we hope to see you all there. Time 7.30pm prompt. New members/visitors are welcome and you don't have to be ex-forces to join.

Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards. One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, 'Now don't get mad at me....I know we've been friends for a long time.....but I just can't think of your name! I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is.' Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said, 'How soon do you need to know?'

Dear Sandra and Barry,

Genuine emails to our magazine

I live in Gran Alacant and just over 2 weeks ago I was very ill one Wednesday night. I was attended to by the local police and 2 ambulances and then taken to Elche Hospital for further treatment.

I would like through your paper to say a great "Thank You" to all concerned as well as all the friends and neighbours who called and offered help and assistance. Many Thanks from Graham and Susan Knight.

LAPLAND Today I went to Lapland, had a sleigh ride in the snow, Played snowballs with the huskies, saw Rudolfʼs red nose glow, Met Santa in his workshop, his elves were working hard, The rooms were filled with laughter, all tears and sadness barred. Had a hug from dear old Santa, his blue eyes twinkling bright. Children laughing and singing, clapping hands with glee. Sat down, had Christmas dinner, in my pudding, a charm and a key, A present for each and everyone, the real world far away. It was a shame to wake up to an ordinary day. We tried to make life magic, in a world so full of woe, I guess, I drea, eccentric me, but one day I will go

Entertainment

scene

It始s great to see the amount of entertainment provided by several of the businesses on Gran Alacant. If you have been a regular advertiser with us, you are quite welcome to send us pictures and details, for publication, FREE of course, to give you some extra publicity.

Gran Alacant


Above in blue boxes are Halloween pictures from the “Yellow Submarine”, red boxes various entertainment nights from “Los Belgas”, orange boxes Halloween at the Phoenix, and Halloween and Cabaret from “OʼDuills” bar. OʼDuills was from halloween night which started with two hours non stop from “Jimmy Mac”. What then followed was a cabaret from people living on our urbanisation, all put together as a cabaret from Terry who is “Terryoke”. A real variety of talent, all in costumes that were made, owned or acquired, to give a real authentic feel. The pictures showed the wonderful camaraderie from our Urbanisation of GRAN ALACANT.

23


Don’t forget, if you advertiser reguarly with us, send us any pictures for future editions.

Just a bit of background to the show on halloween at OʼDuills from Terry who runs his Terryoke show three or four nights a week which involves a karaoke with a difference, as there are several impersonations ie; Freddie Mercury, Elvis, Blues brothers, Michael Jackson, and more to follow. The show came together as a result of Terry asking a few of the regulars that if they were interested would they do a party piece for the night. The support from them was phenomenal from the start. Some costumes came from Algo Viejo Algo nuevo in the GA commercial centre from Sabine who gave 100% support. Everybody took it seriously and it was put together in about three weeks. Another show in OʼDuills was planned on the 21st November and on New Years Eve there is a special night planned. The new years night will have a very Spanish slant on it and is not to be missed. The name for the group is the “Imposters from the Costas”. As you can imagine this involves people from all walks of life and even different nationality's ie; Belgium, Irish, English, Spanish, and Dutch. Terry is 50 years old and had a very successful business in Ireland, but after his wife recovered from cancer they decided to move to Gran Alacant full time. Terryoke started early this summer and has been a great success. He plays in the Gran Alacant area every week and receives great support from the locals. There will be regular shows during the New Year and this magazine will publicise the events.

An elderly couple were on a cruise and it was really stormy. They were standing on the back of the boat watching the storm, when a wave came up and washed the old man overboard. They searched for days and couldn't find him, so the captain sent the old woman back to shore with the promise that he would notify her as soon as they found something. Three weeks went by and finally the old woman got a fax from the boat. It read: 'Ma'am, sorry to inform you, we found your husband dead at the bottom of the ocean. We hauled him up to the deck and attached to his butt was an oyster and in it was a pearl worth $50,000. Please advise.' The old woman faxed back: 'Send me the pearl and re-bait the trap.'

The family run Official Irish bar & restaurant. Well it’s that time of year again when Maribel and myself Chris wish to thank all our very loyal customers and hard working staff, and wish you all a very Happy Christmas and Prosperous New Year. We would especially like to thank Terry and Linda for The Terryoke Experience which has been a great success, and is going from strength to strength. Terry has worked very hard with many of the locals (who we would also like to thank for their hard work and time) to bring together and create fun and crack in a cabaret show, featuring, Elvis, Fabba. Village Idiots, Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury to name but a few. To close off this year there will be a great night of all of the above and lots more, it will be a night not to be missed. 2010 will not only be a new year, it will be a new chapter in O’Duills when we will be reinventing ourselves, with a full shake up of all our menu’s and our sports coverage. Keep an eye out in this magazine for when these changes will take place. Every bar and neighbourhood has it’s own special person, that you take for granted and you only miss them when they are no longer with us. We had one of those very special people 'Patsi' who was taken very quickly, we will always think of her with fond memories may she rest in peace.

Happy Christmas

A MESSAGE FROM OUR TOWN HALL in SANTA POLA to the people of SANTA POLA and GRAN ALACANT. CAMPAIGN OF AWARENESS ABOUT CLEANLINESS GRAFFITI, NOT ALWAYS ART At this time we are going to talk about a large number of posters and advertisements that appear posted on our street lamps, street furniture and façades. The town hall, is constantly cleaning up every street lamp of our town because they are usually full of papers, blobs and even graffiti. It is a laborious task carried out by the workers of the municipal cleaning dealer company. Then, we put a notice on some of them warning not to make dirty according to our cleaning ordinance. Unfortunately, there are still inconsiderate people who do not respect the others’ work and continue sticking up posters anywhere, apart from the advertising invasion that comes up on windscreens or thrown on the ground. That is why let’s remember what our cleaning ordinance says in its article 25, title VIII: “The individuals or legal entities in whose favour advertising is done, as well as those who promote, manage or carry out the placement of the posters will be held responsible for the offence”. Article 26: “The individuals or legal entities in whose favour advertising is done, as well as those who promote, manage or carry out the delivery will be held responsible for the dirtiness produced by the distribution of leaflets which are not delivered by hand, are delivered outside mail boxes, or outside the boxes especially set up for such effect by the neighbours or owners’ community”. Neither must we forget the so-called graffiti that appears anywhere, either public or private locations, making dirt façades, furniture and even vehicles, and consequently causing a regrettable image of our city on the basis of we do not know what kind of art or merit that the authors find there. Perhaps if their desconsiderate authors had to clean them up with their own hands, they would think it over before doing such vandalism acts. Regarding graffiti, our municipal ordinance says, article 27, title IX: “It is forbidden to do any kind of painting in public streets, whether they are drawn on structural elements, roadways, pavements and street furniture or whether they are drawn on exterior walls”.

50

Again, we remind you that any offender who carries out any of the actions explained above may be fined between 100 and 3000€, depending on the seriousness, apart from the cost of cleaning up the damages.


Happy Christmas

Santa Pola Football Club Santa Pola C.F.

by Kevin Rendell

Tough times for Santa Pola C.F.

At the end of October there was I extolling the virtues of the sexy football Santa Pola were playing as they approached November unbeaten. Unfortunately, since then the old girl has put on a bit of weight and hasnʼt looked half as attractive in recent weeks. In their final game of October, ʻPola lost 3-2 away at El Campello and followed that reverse with home defeat against Polop. On their travels a week later Mutxamel also beat them 3-1 on an awful, gale lashed Saturday afternoon. Three defeats in a row were soon forgotten as the Marineros travelled to Hurchillo, temporary home of Orihuela B, and left with all three points after a deserved 1-2 win. The team now boast twenty points and three defeats from their first eleven league games.

Theatre of Dreams

Manchester United fans amongst my readership will be very familiar with the alternative name for Old Trafford.

AUGUST 2009

NOVEMBER 2009

Very soon Santa Pola C.F. will be trotting out at their very own local version of the

theatre of dreams. Work is now two thirds complete on the Manolo Macia stadium in Santa Pola and the ground is almost unrecognisable from recent seasons. New seating is now in place on the extended grandstand, all of which will be under cover when the work is finished. The huge steel skeleton that will eventually form the roof has been erected and now awaits finishing touches. At ground level, work is progressing rapidly too, the next phase for the press room, gymnasium, cafeteria and medical centre is completing the internal fixtures and fittings, the external shells having been finished some weeks ago. Replacement floodlights will soon be in place in all four corners and a re-laid natural grass pitch is due to complete the project which was started six months ago. The hope is for an “inauguracion” evening with a friendly fixture against high profile local opposition before Santa Pola C.F. welcome their first league visitors early in 2010. One thing is certain, Gran Alacant and Santa Pola will soon have a sports facility second to none locally and an arena we can all be justifiably proud of. Forthcoming fixtures Due to the deteriorating state of the Els Ciprerets pitch, Santa Pola will, until the Manolo Macia ground is ready for use, play their remaining home fixtures in 2009 at the Pereira ground in the town. This will be familiar to followers of Gran Alacant Football Club as the ground where GA FC play and train. DECEMBER SCHEDULE SANTA POLA C.F. HOME Santa Pola - Alfaz del Pi 13.12.2009. AWAY Alguena - Santa Pola 20.12.2009.

FOOTNOTE: The weekend of Sunday December 6th is a National Holiday and no football takes place locally. Just like the UK parliament, Santa Pola C.F. take an extended Christmas break after the Alguena fixture and hostilities resume early in 2010

Monte Mar Bowls and Social Club – Sponsored by Super Valu Monte Mar Australian Pairs – Sponsored by Avalon Funeral Plans We recently held the inaugural Australian Pairs Weekend, kindly sponsored by Roger Brierley and the Avalon Funeral Plans Company. Thirty-six players took part in this two-day event, with most never having participated in this type of format before. That said, the two days turned out to be one of the most enjoyable events we have held, and with the help of Roger and Avalon we intend for it to be a permanent fixture in our repertoire. Over the two days, we were battered by gale force winds that provided the most challenging conditions that many of us have ever bowled in, but even the weather did not stop many extremely close matches played to a high standard. At the conclusion of the event, which was also well supported by a good number of supporters, the winners of the event were Lynne and Colin Armitage. Roger accompanied by Sandra, his wife, then provided us with a very welcome drinks and snacks reception, and presented Lynne and Colin with the Avalon Trophy and other prizes.. Our thanks must go to Dave Melville our Competition Secretary, who once again organised a flawless event, to Liz Melville for her tireless work in helping David and maintaining the control and marking for the event. Further thanks go to Barry Woodfine, Stan Routledge, Colin Armitage and Bill Young, all of whom despite also competing in this event, gave up what little spare time they had to provide us with Umpire coverage for the two days; thank you gentlemen. Finally, once again thanks to our sponsors, Roger and Avalon, and long may our association continue.

New Sponsors We are delighted to announce the arrival of new sponsors, who join some of the Costa Blanca’s top companies in supporting our club. The new sponsors are the 121 Car Hire Company, which has been born out of the stupidity of British banks in bringing its predecessor 1car1 to its knees. Several senior staff previously with 1car1 have pulled together, the new company has been born, and once again we have an excellent facility of car hire in the UK, when those of us who live here permanently visit dear old Blighty! The Scribe, in his role as Commercial Secretary, was delighted to welcome to the club Cherie Walker, a partner in the company, who had come to meet club officials and to attend a local Costa Blanca exhibition. The company are sponsoring our twenty-four week winter league, together with our Honorary President’s Day next year.

The photograph shows Cherie Walker with Club Captain John Chapman. Other Club News Coaching School Club coaching, conducted by Bill Young have recommenced on Sunday mornings. Existing and prospective new members are invited to contact Bill on 966796851, or E-mail to HYPERLINK "mailto:info@montemarbowls.com" info@montemarbowls.com If you have never bowled before come along, you may surprise yourself.

Hola a todo el mundo, In December there a parades of Moors and Christians held in Alicante and 8th to 12th in Monforte del Cid. Monforte is a very special place to see these parades, there are more parades than anywhere else. The last day is really special, early in the evening there is a parade where you can see everybody enjoying and having plenty of fun, then two hours later takes place the religious procession, in my opinion this is very impressive, to see how the atmosphere changes from fiesta, noise, dancing, to a silent and solemn procession. The way they go up the steps at the church is very beautiful, and when this finishes “fire works”. I reckon is very late but do not forget that we are “late birds” we live at night. On the 10th at about 8p.m. on the harbour we celebrate in Santa Pola the coming of our Madonna Virgen de Loreto. There are also fiestas in Alfaz del Pi, Agost , Callosa d’En Sarria and pilgrimages in Denia and in Sella. Also I would like to talk about the flour battle that take place in Ibi, “Els Enfarinats” it’s a real battle with everybody throwing flour to each others, wearing tore old clothes. And last come Christmas time, street lighting, “turrón” contests of Christmas Carols almost everywhere, plenty of people in the street buying anything, time for Christmas cards wishing all our friends, relatives and loved people “Merry Christmas” Do not forget sending your letter to the three Kings, I am sure that on the 5th of January they will bring you all plenty of joy, come to the centre of the town and enjoy the three Kings Parade. The best one of these parades is the one held in Alcoy. Also I would like to make a special mention to the most important sport event held in Santa Pola, the International Half Marathon Villa de Santa Pola that will be held on the 24th of January at 10:30 a.m., come and enjoy this fantastic event.

To finish dear readers I want to wish you all ¡Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

A HEAVY PATIENT Because this is our last article in 2009, and Christmas are approaching, this time we prefer to write, instead of about problems and diseases, about a funny real anecdote which happened to us some years ago, related to the biggest patient we have ever treated. Of course, in order to keep the confidentiality, names, places and dates are fictitious. Seven years ago, in summer, I was working in an emergencies service a hot Saturday evening, when a gentleman wearing a big moustache knocked on the door. In a strong Italian accent he asked if there was an exotic pets specialist there. I answered I was. Then he introduced himself as the owner of the circus which had just arrived to the village the day before, and he said my services were required because he had a problem with the… lions. The trouble was the youngest lions had pain at the limbs so they could hardly follow their trainer’s orders. I replied I would check the lions when I finish my turn, at about 21:00h, immediately before the night show. A few minutes before 21:00h, my

husband and colleague picked me up, after buying at the supermarket a big box of biscuits for our daughter, and he loved the idea of working some extra time visiting the circus lions. The show was going to start in a few minutes, so there were lots of people watching the elephant getting ready for the show. The elephant was a female (all the elephants you can see at circuses and zoos are females, because they are smaller and much less aggressive than males). The man who came to see me at the hospital that evening was brushing the elephant carefully with a massive brush, and the elephant, which was a very good and well educated girl, lifted carefully their legs to have them cleaned properly. After that, they washed her with a big hydrant, and then she was dressed in a shiny coat. Everybody who was in queue for buying the tickets was watching the process with curiosity. Then, the man with the moustache saw us and invited us to go to the lions’ enclosure. The animals were in a big mobile cage. There were about ten lions there, all of them very young (no more than 2 years, not very big, and still without the typical mane of an adult male lion, so, their development was not finished). The man with the moustache called the trainer, who asked the

animals to move, trot and jump in order to allow us to detect where the problem was. At the same time we asked the trainer about the diet of the lions, when did they notice the problem first, etc. Apart from the cage, there was a double fence between us and the lions: “lions are dangerous, signorina” the man said. And then, I suddenly felt somebody was touching my shoulder. I turned my head and I realized it was, not my husband, not the trainer, but the elephant’s trunk. I got scared, because I’m not afraid of encaged limp lions standing 5 meters far from me, but I really are of a massive, not encaged elephant! Mr Moustache moved the elephant to the opposite corner so we could continue our conversation, but she came back and gently touched my shoulder with her trunk again. When “Mr Moustache” saw the terror in my face said: “That’s all right, signorina, don’t panic. The elephant ate another Vet this evening, so she is not hungry now”. That was a good argument, but for some reason I didn’t calm down 100%. For the third time, the elephant came back and started touching me again, but then, suddenly, I realized what she really wanted: with her powerful sense of smell, she had detected the box of biscuits I carried in my bag, and she was trying all the time to grab it with the trunk. We opened the box, and it took her 4-5 seconds to gulp all the biscuits. Just in case, we ran away before she finished,

Happy Christmas because we had all the info we needed for diagnosing the problem of the lions. We were invited to watch the show, but unfortunately we couldn’t stand because we had to go urgently to buy a new box of biscuits. The lions improved quickly by correcting the diet and increasing calcium and vitamin D levels. This is a very common problem in young captivity bred lions. From that moment, when somebody asks us if we treat exotic animals, the very first thing we ask the owner is the weight of the animal.

WHAT’S THAT IN THE CLOT? by Mark Etheridge Have you ever wondered why a rifle marksman is called a Sniper? That’s because the bird we are looking at this month is one of the most difficult to shoot with a gun, which is jolly good news for the Common Snipe and bullet manufacturers, but bad news for the

budding shooter, and when he gives up the pastime in despair, even better

European birds taking their winter holiday on the Costa Blanca. They are


very distinctive as you can see from my photograph with that extremely long beak, and a good starting point for getting to know the difficult range of birds which comprise the waders. Once you know the Snipe, you can then judge other waders against them. Look for them in the shallower areas, they will be quietly feeding in amongst the

flocks

of

duck,

coots

and

moorhens, and being fairly unobtrusive about it. Occasionally one will whizz across your field of view from one of the hides, and you’ll quickly see why it is a very fleeting target for the shooter. So, what’s with the Pinnochio beak? This is a bird which feeds on muddy areas,

probing

the

depths

for

invertebrates, going at it like a demented sewing machine. Although the plumage is very striking with its brown and white stripes, it is one of those misleading ones designed so that when the bird is on its nest, it becomes almost invisible against the background. Breeding male Snipe make the most peculiar noise during their display flight. They indulge in power dives, and while doing this extend a feather at each side of the tail. These feathers vibrate, leading to a noise which sounds vaguely like a goat bleating, but which is known in birding circles as “drumming” – once you’ve heard it, you’ll never forget it! The Spanish name for the Snipe is Agachadiza Comun, but the Spanish word for a Sniper is Francotirador, so perhaps
