The 13 Best Hotels in the Canary Islands for Families

Protected sandy beaches, fun water parks, and excellent whale- and dolphin-watching make Spain’s Canary Islands a great choice for a family getaway. We’ve visited hundreds (and hundreds) of hotels in Tenerife, Gran Canaria, and Lanzarote to find resorts with the most family-friendly features, like large or apartment-style guest rooms, beach proximity, pools for kids, and on-site entertainment.

See All Canary Islands Hotels

1

Puerto Rico, Caribbean

Built into the cliffs overlooking Amadores beach on Gran Canaria, the Gloria Palace Royal Hotel & Spa is a sprawling oceanfront resort with beach access and stunning vistas of the water. The two outdoor pools are definite highlights, as they are large and overlook the beach.There is also an indoor playroom with a ball pit and jungle gym, as well as the outdoor children’s area and kiddy pool. Games and entertainment tailored specifically for the little ones are also offered.

2

La Caleta, Adeje, Tenerife

Hotel Suite Villa Maria is a quiet village-like sanctuary perfect for young families. Its 78 duplex villas are more like vacation homes than typical hotel rooms. (Maybe make that dream vacation homes, since here you can cook dinner and leave the kitchen disorder to housekeeping.) They start at 800 square feet and come in one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations, all with full kitchens, living rooms, and multiple bathrooms (even one-bedroom villas have guest bathrooms on the first floor). The villas are positioned around a peaceful pool complex with three pools (one for kids), an enclosed playground, and a pool bar with barbecue. The hotel has a teen room with four PlayStations, and an adjacent supervised kids’ club with activities like face-painting, bingo, water aerobics, Play-Doh, ping-pong, balloons, live music, and a nightly free mini disco. When we visited, the mini disco was just getting started in the main square, but the participants were largely distracted by the exotic bird show that was setting up a few feet away.

3

Costa Adeje, Adeje, Tenerife

This 271-room luxury hotel is kid-friendly and large — with five buildings, two pools, three restaurants, and a wide array of on-site amenities — but sprawling grounds allow for uncrowded and mostly serene spaces. Family-friendly features include a heated kiddy pool, playground, and kids’ club with activities, as well as outdoor tennis court, a nine-hole putting green, an indoor squash court, and loaner bikes.

4

Playa de las Americas, Arona, Tenerife

HD Parque Cristobal Tenerife’s bungalow concept is unusual in Playa de las Americas, an area where most hotels are big-box balconied buildings. But Parque Cristobal’s low-rise layout doesn’t mean it’s not lively: a digital concierge in the lobby lists day’s agenda, which might include water polo, yoga, sangria workshops, rifle shooting, shuffleboard, and football tournaments, and live entertainment is staged every night in a subterranean nightclub.  The enclosed grounds mean that kids can rove about freely with newly acquired friends without parents’ constant concern. For this reason, and because of its easy stroller access, Parque Cristobal is first and foremost for families with children. The hotel’s Kid Suites were renovated in 2015, and come with changing tables, high chairs, bottle warmers, and food processors. Their colorful second bedrooms feature two beds, beanbag chairs, and PlayStation 2s.

5

Meloneras, Gran Canaria

There is always a lot going on at this sprawling, African-inspired resort, with a kids’ club with daily activities, two kiddy pools (one of them with slides), and a packed entertainment program for adults and children. Additionally, there is a long sandy beach down the street. Just be aware of the handful of extra fees, including for Wi-Fi, parking, and in-room safes.

6

Costa Adeje, Adeje, Tenerife

The kids’ club at this large, luxurious resort features a kiddy pool, daily activities, and an area for teens with a PlayStation, board games, and a foosball table. Tennis courts, a putting green, yacht day trips, and an on-site astronomical observatory that hosts guided star-gazing nights keep kids and their parents entertained.

7

Costa Adeje, Adeje, Tenerife

Costa Adeje Gran Hotel is a large, family-friendly hotel conveniently located a short walk from the beach, bars, restaurants, and shops. With three large pools, two restaurants (one particularly good), optional all-inclusive rates, and a kids’ club with daily indoor and outdoor activities, the hotel offers a solid upscale resort-style stay in a central location. However, some guests may find rooms a little plain for a hotel that advertises itself as a luxury property, and extra fees can add up.

8

Costa Adeje, Adeje, Tenerife

An all-inclusive resort catering to families and couples, the h20 Costa Adeje looms large as a 467-room property. Its on-site beach is small and rocky, but the hotel runs free shuttles to Las Américas beach. There is also free Wi-Fi, a buffet restaurant (plus two others: one Japanese and one a la carte), and a  kids’ club offering daily activities, a playground, and mini-disco at night.

9

Costa Adeje, Adeje, Tenerife

Melia Jardines del Teide is located a 15-minute walk from Playa del Duque, one of Costa Adeje’s best beaches. The hotel is a popular pick among families, thanks to its kids’ club, a playground, a kiddy pool section, and kid-friendly entertainment, so be warned that it can get busy. Wi-Fi comes at an extra charge, but all in all, this is probably the area’s best all-inclusive.

10

San Agustin, Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

Though the 448-room Gloria Palace San Agustin is not right on the sea, it offers impressive views of the beach, which is about a 10-minute walk away. The property is conveniently located near one of the main highways and the shops of Playa del Ingles. It caters to families in particular with its kids’ club, table tennis, child-friendly entertainment, and kiddy pool. All ages can enjoy the extensive pool complex, which spans two levels that house two outdoor pools (in addition to the one for children only) and plenty of lounge chairs.

11

Playa Blanca, Lanzarote

Families and groups looking for an all-inclusive beachfront hotel with plenty of dining and entertainment options won’t be disappointed with Sandos Papagayo Beach Resort. With 488 rooms, three pools, and several restaurants, the most common issue guests have is getting lost on the grounds. Guest rooms vary in size but even the lower-category room types have terraces and some rooms have beautiful water views, along with dated decor. The hotel offers daily activities for kids and adults, including a sports complex with tennis and basketball courts, miniature golf, and a kids’ club with a playground and lots of toys and activities.  Las Coloradas Beach is easily accessible via a direct path from the hotel.

12

Puerto Calero, Lanzarote

This family-friendly all-inclusive resort has serene grounds and ocean views. In keeping with the many all-inclusive resorts that line the shores of the Canary Islands, the Hesperia Lanzarote Hotel offers the standard amenities one would expect: four outdoor pools (including two that are heated year round), three decent restaurants (an international buffet, a Mediterranean eatery, and an a la carte restaurant serving regional cuisine), and kid-friendly features, such as a kiddy pool, a kids’ club, a playground, and a mini-golf course.

13

Costa Teguise, Lanzarote

The 368-room Sands Beach Resort is a mid-range beachfront property popular with families and older couples seeking value. Spacious apartment-style rooms can be hit or miss, as some have been renovated and feature simple but contemporary decor and updated kitchens, while others feel like they haven’t been touched in years, with dated elements including tube TVs. Aside from the on-site beach, the property offers dozens of daily activities for all ages — including seven pools, a restaurant, a tennis court, non-motorized water sports, a game room, and nightly entertainment — but it’s mostly quiet thanks to its sprawling grounds.

Why choose and where to stay in La Gomera?

La Gomera is the second-smallest island among all Canary Islands and is famous for its volcanic mountains with an incredible range of hiking trails.

Viviendas Vacacionales Jardín La Punta Holiday Home

This is a great place to stay during your stay in La Gomera. It has absolutely gorgeous views where your balcony is overlooking the sea. The house is spacious with a well-equipped kitchen. Free parking at the premises and a good WiFi reception are included.

long. Every room has a private terrace and a good WiFi service.

Lastly, there is a lot of on-site sports facilities, but for golf lovers, there is a famous Tecina Golf Course located a short drive away from the hotel.  

Book here

Why choose and where to stay in El Hierro?

El Hierro, one of the smallest and furthest islands in Canary Island range, it offers a unique experience to unknown. This island is almost untouched by tourists receiving mainly other Canarians throughout the year. When you are there, it feels like you are disconnected from the world filled with pollution, devices, and cars. You will see a lot of farmed animals, gorgeous suburban landscapes, electric bikes, and enjoy a bit of Wi-Fi signal too. To get there, simply take a ferry or plane from both Tenerife or Gran Canaria islands.

Salitre Apartments

I find it a super unique place to stay because while you have access to a giant swimming pool overlooking the ocean, the ocean is actually right below you. So, when you get out of the pool, you just need to make a couple of steps down to jump into the real Atlantic Ocean. How cool is that?

Besides, the room is extremely cosy and spacious. It has absolutely everything you need, not to mention how sparklingly clean it looks. You may have an unforgettable holiday at El Hierro island staying at this apartment.

Book here

Villamocanes Villa

One giant gorgeous villa is located in Frontera. It has a
room for a group of families featuring four bedrooms. Free WiFi and parking are
included which is nice because I doubt anyone would want to leave the property.

The garden offers a spacious swimming pool and a whole special division devoted to the BBQ area. Let’s start the party!

Book here

Why choose and where to stay in La Graciosa?

La Graciosa is located 2 km north of Lanzarote island. It will cost you 30-35$ (half price for kids) and 25 minutes’ boat ride to get there from Lanzarote and enjoy one or two days of the most gorgeous volcanic and coastal landscapes. On top of that, it is one of the least explored and most peaceful islands in the entire archipelago with no asphalted roads. Imagine, what a unique experience it can be!

Evita Beach Apartaments

The whole experience coming from Lanzarote for a couple of days to La Graciosa and staying at this apartment complex is just amazing! It has the most perfect views, and the best part is that it is located right on the beach.

The property not only offers access to the beach but to a volcanic stone garden. It is located minutes away from the port where the ferry takes you back to Lanzarote.

Immaculately clean 2-bedroom suite with a fully equipped kitchen and a terrace really allowed us to spend some time together after our child went to bed. Fantastic property, amazing service!

Which is the least touristy Canary Island?

While Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote may be packed with tourists during summer and winter, Fuerteventura receives slightly fewer tourists although it is the second-largest island among all Canary Islands.

You can find the least tourists in La Palma, La Gomera, El
Hierro, and La Graciosa.

La Palma is the furthest one and it takes up to 8
hours to get there by ferry or 4 hours by plane.

However, you can get an amazing getaway during your visit to Tenerife visiting La Gomera or El Hierro.

From Gran Canaria, you can take a flight to El Hierro and enjoy a couple of days in total nature beauty and tranquillity.

If you travel to Lanzarote, it is the best place to plan a getaway to the least explored and most peaceful island, La Graciosa.

So, what is your best Canary Island to visit now?

What is the best time to visit the Canary Islands?

The Canary Islands are famous for their all-year-round sunshine, and warm nice water at any beach you go to. So, when to visit the Canary Islands?

The best time to visit the Canary Islands is either between March and May or September and November. Summer is one of the most expensive seasons, all the islands are overpacked and hotels are overcrowded. This just makes everything significantly more expensive and more challenging to get.

We went to Gran Canaria in the last days of September until mid-October and are absolutely convinced that this is the best time to go. We felt like VIP guests with very few tourists around us. The majority were Canarians. The weather was pleasant, the beaches were not packed, and our daily routine for two weeks ended up being in the water anyways. Plus, no queues, cheaper tours, car rental, and hotel prices.

Are the Canary Islands safe for tourists?

Apart from figuring out which Canary Island to visit, it is important to look into other aspects of your future travel.

In relation to safety, the Canary Islands are extremely safe and have a low crime risk, especially in tourist areas. There are good police presence and safety regulations, especially at the beaches.

Are the Canary Islands expensive to visit?

It is no wonder the Canary Islands is one of the most popular destinations by UK tourists and now I know why. While you can get a cheap flight to one of the islands for as little as £20 GBP ($25 USD) one-way flying with a low-cost airline, you are also guaranteed to get tanned, swim in warm water without getting too much wind at the beach, and enjoy all-inclusive hotel deal for much lower than you would get it in the UK, or frankly speaking, anywhere else in Europe. I’d say the alternative could be a resort area in Egypt or Turkey.

If you get an all-inclusive deal, you won’t need to worry about spending your money on food, or alcohol drinks at all. So, the rest is up to you on how much you want to spend on tours and souvenirs.

Can you drink the water in the Canary Islands?

Most of the tap water in the Canary Islands is drinkable as it is desalinated seawater, but it tastes funny. While it is safe to drink, it is up to you whether to buy bottled water or not. During our stay, we have got a couple of bottled spring water, 8L each. Also, every hotel will provide you with any water amount you want offering it one of the bars next to the pool with slides.

What language do they speak in the Canary Islands?

The official language is Spanish. We found very few tourists
when we went to Gran Canaria and spoke Spanish daily. The only tourists we
found were the hotel animators.

In the majority of the Canary Islands, there are many people who speak English because there are lots of tourists throughout the year, so you will be safe to travel there language-wise.

The second most spoken language is German. In fact, many hotels have signs and menus in three languages, limited to Spanish, English, and German.

Canary Island Families

On March 9, 1731, fifty-five Canary Islanders arrived at Béxar,
becoming the first municipality in the Spanish province of Texas

The last phase of the strategy was to establish a civil settlement or presents in
Texas.  To that end, on February 14, 1719, the Marqués de San Miguel de Aguayo proposed
to King Philip V of Spain that 400 families be transported from the Canary Islands,
Galicia, or Havana to populate the province of Texas. His plan was approved, and
notice was given the Canary Islanders to furnish 200 families; the Council of the
Indies suggested that 400 families should be sent from the Canaries to Texas by way
of Havana and Veracruz.

 

By June 1730, twenty-five families had reached Cuba and ten families had been sent
on to Veracruz before orders from Spain to stop the movement arrived.

Under the leadership of Juan Leal Goraz, ten families started out from the Canary
Islands.  Within a month after the group arrived at Cuatitlán in September of 1730,
the number increased by marriages to fifteen families and four single men, a total
of fifty-six persons.  This is evident from a comparison of the list of the families
taken at Cuatitlán, September 9, 1730 with the official list taken just before they
left Cuatitlán, November 8, 1730.  At Saltillo in the state of Coahuila a new list
and inventory was taken on January 31, 1731.  They were provided with an escort of
10 soldiers to the Presidio de San Juan Bautista and from there they where escorted
to the presidio of San Antonio de Béxar by Francisco Dubal, where they arrived at
eleven o’clock in the morning on March 9, 1731.

The Alvarez Travieso and the Arocha families apparently joined the original party
of settlers after their arrival at Cuatitlán.  A new and final list was made after
arrival at San Antonio in order to confer upon them the title of nobility, as first
settlers and upon their descendants, the title of Hijos Dalgos or Hidalgos, mandated
and so honored by the king of Spain, Philip V, each family head could use the term
“Don” before his name, denoting his title.  Today, there are many individuals and
families who are descendants from these original Canary Island colonists.

Herodotus called the Garden of Hesperides, Homer the Elysian Fields and Pliny the
Fortunate isles. Christopher Columbus visited them in 1492. The name Canaries is
derived from canis, the Latin word for “dog.” Early explorers named them for the
many dogs they found there. The isles share an eternal spring climate but they differ
dramatically amongst each other.

 

The original inhabitants of the Canaries were a race known as the Guanches, a name
derived from guan, meaning man or people, and achinch, meaning white mountain in
an obvious reference to Tenerife’s snow-capped Mount Teide. The natives lived a Stone
Age existence of shepherding and very rudimentary agriculture. They buried their
dead and, in the case of chieftains, mummified the, much like the ancient Egyptians.
In Tenerife, Bencome, the mencey or leader of the tribe, fiercely resisted the conquistadors
with his flint exes and slings, while in Gran Canaria the ruling guanarteme, Semidán,
welcomed the European strangers and established truces.

 

Modern contact with the Canaries began to develop in the Middle Ages as sailors from
peninsular Spain arrived to plunder the isles of their orchids, which were used to
make dye, and of their inhabitants, who were enslaved. Conquest in earnest only began
with the Norman explorer Jean de Béthencourt who, in 1402 , claimed Lanzarote on
behalf of his feudal lord Henry III of Castile and who later became king of the islands.

One of the few remaining possessions of Spain, the Canary Islands lie in the Atlantic
Ocean about 60 miles (95 kilometers) from the northwest coast of Africa.   Their
total area is 2,796 square miles (7,242 square kilometers). The Canaries are divided
into two provinces of Spain­ Las Palmas and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.  They comprise
seven principal islands­ Tenerife, Grand Canaria, La Palma, Hierro, Gomera, Lanzarote,
and Fuerteventura­ and several smaller uninhabited ones.  They were called Fortunatae
Insulae (Fortunate Islands, or Isles of the Blest) in ancient Roman legends.  

During the settlement of Texas in the early 1700’s, the Spanish government recognized the need to both Christianize and civilize the Indians of Texas. They also realized they would need to keep the French from encroaching on Spanish territory. They developed a three-fold strategy. First, was establish a series of missions to bring Christianity to the Indians.  Next, protect those missions by a series of presidios or forts and finally, populate the territory with civil settlements loyal to New Spain.  The presidio of San Antonio de Béjar was established on the San Antonio River in 1718.  That same year, the mission of San Antonio de Valero was moved from the Rio Grande to the vicinity of the presidio, completing the first two stages of the three-fold strategy.  Béxar, as it was known, was populated only by a small group of solider’s and their few families. A civil government did not exist at this time.

Karen, better known as Travelmadmum, realised her tribe had been suffering from a bad case of them when they escaped to Fuerteventura with Barceló just after Christmas for a Canary Islands holiday with children.Winter is never an easy time, and it can be even more trying when you’ve got kids. Once the Christmas lights have come down and the holidays are over, the cold months stretch out before us, with a long wait until spring decides to deign to make an appearance.Karen and her husband Shaun decided what they and their two little ones, Esme and Quinn, needed was an escape from the not-so-Great British Winter to the sunshine, in the form of family-friendly holidays in the Canary Islands. And, as far as winter family holidays go, this one definitely did not disappoint.

Who is Travelmadmum?

Travelmadmum, Karen Edwards, is an Instagram sensation with over 105 thousand followers and a hugely successful blog, who first gained media attention when she and her husband Shaun took to the road during her maternity leave. They like to call it a baby gap year. Her little girl Esme was only 10 weeks old when she went on her first adventure!Since then, they’ve added little Quinn to the tribe, and he’s been exploring the world almost since day one, too! This tiny person has already been to 27 countries, Esme to 41, and their mum and dad to 81. And they’re not going to be stopping any time soon!

As Karen points out on her blog, she and her husband don’t have high-powered jobs or sky-high salaries. They’re just travel lovers, who want to share that love with their kids.They simply made the decision back when she first got pregnant to make the most of her maternity leave to spend quality time with their new arrival whilst discovering the world, and have never looked back.As Karen puts it, ‘the overall aim (of the blog) is to inspire like-minded, travel-loving parents – your travel days do not have to be over. It’s all about incorporating your little person into your way of life.’ Travelling with young children doesn’t have to be impossible!Currently based in London, the thought of Canary Islands winter holidays was something they just couldn’t resist.

Canary Islands family holidays: Fuerteventura winter sun

Right after the Christmas madness was over, in need of an escape from the cold of London, Karen, Shaun and the kids packed their bags and headed for the Barceló Castillo Beach Resort on the shores of Fuerteventura for a child-friendly Canary Islands holiday.The kids couldn’t believe their eyes when they got out onto the balcony of their apartment and saw the playground, beach and swimming pool, their stomping ground for the next few days.As it’s one of the best child-friendly hotels in the Canary Islands, there are all kinds of kids’ activities laid on at the Castillo Beach Resort’s kids’ club to keep little ones occupied whilst their parents have a chance to relax and unwind, as this family found out. One of Esme’s favourite parts was the kids’ disco, which she really got stuck into!Karen was particularly grateful that there was plenty to keep the kids amused after having been keeping them entertained all Christmas long, as we’re sure any parents out there will understand only too well.They spent their days soaking up the glorious winter sunshine, the perfect antidote to all those coughs and colds that we all fall victim to at this time of year, especially the smallest people amongst us.Whilst she was in Fuerteventura, Karen had lots of people sending her messages asking whether it was really that warm at the beginning of January, struggling to believe it when looking out of their window’s in the wintry UK, dreaming of short breaks to the Canary Islands. Her video answer spoke louder than words.She uploaded a video story from the sandy beach showing Shaun paddling in the shallows with Esme on his shoulders, both in full swimming gear, soaking up the gentle rays. If that doesn’t prove that Canary Islands family holidays are the best way to get a bit of sun at this time of year without going too far from home, we don’t know what does!

Canary Islands winter holidays: the perfect escape

Are you looking for the best place to stay in Fuerteventura for families? If your idea of heaven is the perfect all-inclusive holiday, then the 4* Barceló Castillo Beach Resort, in Caleta de Fuste, might be just what the doctor ordered. As far as Fuerteventura family hotels go, it’s a fantastic option.You’ll be able to luxuriate in your spacious bungalow or apartment, take your pick from several restaurants and bars, try your hand at water sports or even treat yourself to a spa session whilst the kids are kept entertained. One thing you’re definitely not going to be on a holiday in the Canary Islands with children is bored!Each of the Canary Islands has their own individual charm, and they’re all perfect for winter family holidays and family breaks with balmy temperatures year round. But, if you’re after a bit of peace and quiet to go with your sunshine, then the ‘tranquil island’, as Fuerteventura is known, might be perfect for you. If you’ve been wondering which is the best Canary Island for families, you’ll be pleased to know that this might just be the best Canary island for kids.With February fast coming to a close, you might be wondering what the weather is like in the Canary Islands in March. The excellent news is that the only way is up! The already balmy temperatures warm up even more come March, and the cooler winter nights start to give way to warm spring ones.Don’t just sit there and stare out of the window waiting for summer to arrive. Book yourself and your family a little slice of summer, spend your holidays in Fuerteventura, and get the dose of ‘Vitamin Sea’ you all need to see you through till spring.

What is the best area in Gran Canaria for families?

In our opinion, Puerto Rico is the best area of Gran Canaria for families, especially if you are traveling with toddlers or babies.

Best Hotels for Families in Gran Canaria

  • h20 Playa Meloneras Palace (Meloneras)
  • Hotel New Folías (Maspalomas)
  • Riu Vistamar – All Inclusive (Puerto Rico)

What to do in Gran Canaria with kids

Besides going to the beach or pool and enjoying the good weather, you can plan fun day trips depending on what are your interests. You will find lots of things to do for kids in Gran Canaria, from visiting an animal park to an amusement park and various boat trips that you can take.

1. Cocodrilo Park


Visiting Cocodrilo Park can prove to be a fascinating experience for kids while in Gran Canaria

Cocodrilo Park in Gran Canaria is the zoo with the largest exhibition of alligators in Europe.

Cocodrilo Park is actually a rescue center in Agüimes, Gran Canaria, that welcomes many animals stolen or simply found by the SEPRONA (Nature Protection Service).

Visiting the park as a family can be a learning experience for the children (they even offer a crocodile show at 13:00 h).

2. Go on a boat trip


Take the kids on a boat trip in Gran Canaria

Since you’re on an island, it only seems fitting that one of the best things to do in Gran Canaria is going on a boat trip. There are many types of boat trips, like fishing trips, whale & dolphin watching trips, or boat trips where you can stop to snorkel or swim. It all depends on what your family’s interests are, and how young your kids are since not all excursions are ideal for children. 

BOOK ONLINEGran Canaria: Dolphin Watching Cruise

  • Duration 2 – 3 hours
  • Unlimited soft drinks

Palmitos Park


Ideas for visiting Gran Canaria with children: go to Palmitos Park

Palmitos Park is the largest zoo in Gran Canaria and a fun place to visit with the kids. Be prepared to spend the entire day at the park, since they have lots of animals to see and some shows as well, like the ones with dolphins, raptors and exotic birds.

4. Holiday World Maspalomas

Especially if you’re staying in the Maspalomas area, Holiday World can be great for some nighttime entertainment. The park has been updated recently, so there are lots of attractions for kids and parents as well. They count with over 30 attractions, including a 2 story carousel and roller coasters.

Ride the Ferris Wheel for scenic views of the area, take it easy on the Carousel or feel the adrenaline on the Spin Loop. Take the little ones to the activities specially designed with them in mind and stop for some refreshments in the food court.

BOOK ONLINEHoliday World Maspalomas Wooland Ticket

  • Includes Entry Ticket to Wooland
  • Free cancellation up to 24 hours before the activity starts

5.

Enjoy the best family beaches in Gran Canaria’s


Puerto Rico is a great resort for families with small children

Gran Canaria is mainly a sun and beach destination, so spending time at the beach will probably be your no.1 activity with the kids (or time spent by the pool as well, depending on what you prefer).

In our opinion, the best family beaches in Gran Canaria are Playa Amadores, Playa de Puerto Mogan and Anfi Beach.

These beaches are especially suitable for kids because they are well equipped and have calm waters, which make them safe even for small children and babies. All these beaches have plenty of restaurants nearby, so it’s easy to grab lunch or some drinks during the day.

6. Poema del Mar

This is a really interesting place for kids, but for adults as well. Poema del Mar is located in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, the island’s capital and it’s part of the same group as Loro Parque and Siam Park in Tenerife. Poema del Mar is home to a giant Aquarium with many species of marine life, along with many other exhibits that will keep you occupied for a few hours.

BOOK ONLINEPoema del Mar Skip-the-Line Ticket – € 25 per person

  • Entry is free for children under 4 years old
  • Skip the ticket line
  • Wheelchair accessible attraction

7. Sioux City Park San Agustin

Sioux City Park is the first Wild West theme park launched in Spain. Here you and your family can dress like a cowboy or Indian, visit the establishments in town and their animal park as well. The park is great even for toddlers and small children, who will really love the visit to the animal farm.

8. One of a kind experience: Indoor SkyDiving

9. Angry Birds Activity Park Puerto Rico

Angry Birds Activity Park is a really popular attraction in Puerto Rico, featuring zip-lines, a playground and a laser maze. All the activities in the park are included in the price of the ticket and children of all ages will find something interesting to do and explore in this theme park.

10. Elder Museum of Science and Technology

This museum is also located in Las Palmas, as well as Poema del Mar, so if you’re visiting the capital you have two options for places to visit with the kids. This is an interactive museum, which also includes a replica of a space station, plus a 3D cinema and a planetarium.

11. Aqualand

Aqualand is the largest water park in Gran Canaria, located very close to Maspalomas.

If you’re staying in the area and your kids really want to go to a water park, then you might give it a go for the day. We have included this park on our list because we think that you should be aware of its existence on the island, although it does not have very good reviews and prices are quite high in the park for food and drinks. 

12. Lago Taurito Water Park

This is a much smaller water park than Aqualand, but their prices are reasonable and you can have something to do even for very small kids. There are not as many rides as at Siam Park, but the ticket is also much cheaper. If you’re staying in Taurito or in the neighboring Mogan or Puerto Rico, you might give this park a try.

13. Racing Kart Maspalomas

This karting track is located in Maspalomas and it can offer a day of adrenaline for teenagers and adults as well. They can also organize competitions for you if you’re coming with several members of your family and friends, so it could be an interesting option to celebrate a birthday in Gran Canaria.

    which island to choose for vacation?

    When the beach season ends on the mainland of Spain, many tourists turn their eyes towards its island part – the Canary archipelago. In Russia, a situation has historically developed that when we say Canaries, we mean Tenerife, but in fact, the Canaries are 7 inhabited islands, each of which has more or less developed tourism. I was lucky enough to visit 6 of them, and I would like to tell you about the features of recreation on each of these islands.

    Tenerife

    The most famous of them is, of course, Tenerife. It is very popular with Russian tourists, which is completely justified. Possessing excellent climatic characteristics, this island is interesting for its nature and landscape, as well as excellent infrastructure for recreation for both the elderly and families with children and young people. The popularity of the island is also explained by the ability to fly to it without a transfer in just 7 hours. The island has a well-developed hotel base. You can stay in modest and inexpensive apartments, as well as in luxury hotels with a huge territory, luxurious interiors and excellent service.

    The island is big enough, so even during a long vacation you can always entertain yourself with something and keep yourself busy. Here is the highest point in Spain – the Teide volcano, which is visited by almost all vacationers on the island.

    Good beaches, good restaurants, nightclubs and amusement parks make the island popular with outdoor enthusiasts. Those who prefer a beach holiday get great pleasure from swimming in the ocean, walking along the embankments and excellent local cuisine. The most popular park in Tenerife is Loro Park, which is home to a huge number of animals and birds. Shows of parrots, dolphins and seals are held here. Another park of interest is Siam Park Water Park with its state of the art water slides, pools and restaurants. There are also several other theme parks, ancient towns and scenic landscape attractions on the island.

    Tenerife is perfect for all types of tourists. The only caveat is that since the island is located in the Atlantic Ocean, even in summer the water rarely warms up above 23 degrees.

    Gran Canaria

    The second most popular island is Gran Canaria. The island is also very interesting and unique. Of course, the entertainment industry is somewhat more modest here, but nevertheless, you won’t be bored here either. The island has several beautiful resorts, the most popular of which is Maspalomas, located in the southern part of the island. The resort is famous for its endless dunes and sandy beaches.

    Here you can stay in luxurious hotels of many European chains. There are very few vacationers from Russia on the beaches of Gran Canaria. For children, Palmitas Park, a water park and Sioux city were built on the island. The island will appeal to lovers of mountain landscapes, good beaches and people who are interested in a relaxing holiday away from noisy cities.

    Lanzarote

    A very peculiar place is the island of Lanzarote, very popular with German tourists. This island’s landscape and scenery immediately shows its guests that it is of volcanic origin. A visit to Lanzarote combines a relaxing beach holiday and sightseeing. A characteristic feature of the island is the symbiosis of nature and design: the famous artist Cesar Manrique had a hand in almost all of its interesting places. He designed a restaurant in a cave, built unusual buildings all over the island, and created a very picturesque cactus park in an abandoned quarry. It is he who owns the emblem of the Timanfaya volcano park – a funny imp that you will meet on the roads of the island.

    Timanfaya National Park is an amazing sight: many volcanoes of various shades, standing in the middle of a desert area where there is practically no vegetation.

    Here in the park, in the El Diablo restaurant, you can taste dishes cooked on a volcanic grill and make sure that the volcano is not extinct, but simply asleep. Lanzarote has enough beaches, both wide sandy and small, hidden in secluded bays. Due to the very sparse vegetation, the island may seem somewhat uncomfortable to some. For a leisurely tour of the island, combined with rest, 7-10 days are needed.

    Fuerteventura

    Lanzarote’s closest neighbor, the island of Fuerteventura, is nothing like it. If the main color of Lanzarote is dark brown and black, then Fuertevetura has a light beige hue. The name of the island in Spanish means “strong wind”, and this is the true truth. Fuerteventura is a paradise for windsurfers who come here from all over Europe.

    The island is bordered by sand dunes, and in the center of the island there are mountains that form a very peculiar lunar landscape.

    In principle, the main concept of holidays in Fuerteventura is windsurfing and relaxation. There are no big cities, huge amusement parks, the infrastructure of the island includes everything you need, but nothing more. The island is suitable for a relaxing pastime or water sports.

    La Gomera

    The island of La Gomera is very often visited by tourists as part of excursions from neighboring Tenerife. In general, this is justified, since the island is small and cannot boast of luxurious beaches, noisy discos or modern amusement parks. Its main attraction is the Garajonay Natural Park, where a relic laurel forest grows, which is under the protection of UNESCO.

    The island is cozy and provincial. Its capital, San Sebastian, is a pleasant place for a day trip. Its main legend and attraction is the well, from where Christopher Columbus drew water before setting sail for America.

    The island is very interesting for lovers of hiking in nature. The hotel base of the island is poorly developed.

    La Palma

    Probably the least known island among Russians is La Palma – the greenest of all the Canary Islands. Despite its modest size, the island has enough sights to interest tourists for 5-7 days. There are several good beaches, interesting volcanic parks where you can walk and see the craters of volcanoes. In the center of the island there is a very picturesque gorge, viewing platforms and the highest point of the island – Roque de los Muchachos. There is an observatory next to it. A very winding serpentine leads to Roque de los Muchachos, so when planning a trip, take more time for this part of the tour. Near the city of El Paso is the visitor center of the Caldera de Taburiente Natural Park, which has many hiking trails of varying difficulty. When visiting La Palma, you should understand that hardly anyone will entertain you on the island, so the main purpose of the visit should be to relax and explore the natural beauties.

    Hierro

    The smallest island of the archipelago is called Hierro. The island has a very diverse landscape, part of it is covered with the remains of volcanoes, solidified lava, the coast of the island is formed by high rocks and cliffs. Despite this, the island is quite green, its central part is covered with thickets of relict laurel forests and ferns. Hierro has small beaches covered with volcanic sand. The island is of interest to diving enthusiasts. Currently, Hierro is not very popular with tourists, as in 2011 there was little volcanic activity on it.

    Choosing a holiday destination

    So which of the islands is the best choice to visit if you are visiting the Canary Islands for the first time? Well, probably, after all, Tenerife. Here you can easily find the necessary balance between relaxation on the beach, educational pastime and numerous entertainments.

    From Tenerife you can also visit the island of La Gomera.

    The second place, in my opinion, is shared by Gran Canaria and Lanzarote. When choosing one of them, it is necessary to take into account personal preferences and preferences. Gran Canaria is greener and more familiar to the eye, Lanzarote is completely unusual and almost devoid of vegetation.

    Fuerteventura is the perfect choice for windsurfers or people who just want to relax and unwind. If you want to arrange an excursion part of your vacation, you can swim in Lanzarote by ferry.

    La Palma is for gourmets who have tried all the other parts of the Canary archipelago and are looking for something new. The island itself is very wonderful, but it is quite difficult to get to it. In addition, for many people who are accustomed to a fun and noisy resort life, La Palma may seem too boring.

    Joan Torrent retired. He received prizes in clothing and did not take Rosell to Cantera

    Joan Torrent Sole (born in Barcelona on 6 January 1941) is a rare type of professional dedicated to one club. Fully committed to Barcelona, ​​he has been linked to the club for 54 years at various stages of his life. Torrent joined the Blue Garnet as a player in 1959 and remained with the Blues until 1968 before returning to coach from 1975 to 2021. An example of constancy and fidelity.

    Torrent started playing football in Palamos (Girona, Catalonia) where he lived between the ages of 6 and 16. His mother, Maria, was sent to Girona by doctor’s order for treatment of some ailments, and took little Joan with her, leaving the rest of the family in Barcelona’s Gracia district in the care of his father, who was fond of cycling and was a big movie lover.

    Joan started his career in the Infantile category of the Palamós club, and soon Girona took him to their Juvenil. He excelled as a defensive midfielder due to his physique, physical and technical qualities. His debut for the Girona first team came in season 1958/59 at the age of 17 under the direction of Ricardo Gagliart. The legendary Barcelona player Josep Samitier laid eyes on him and took him to Condal (the predecessor of Barcelona B) for 400,000 pesetas and a friendly match at Vista Alegre (former Girona stadium). “I already have a replacement for Luis Suarez [Miramontes],” Torrent recalls the words “Sami.” “He was wrong,” he adds with a laugh, making it clear that “Luisito was Luisito.”

    AFCB / Josep Morera i Falcó

    Samitier (left) and Kubala (right)

    Barça

    He spent two seasons at Condal under Gomez de Lecube and Enric Rabassa. Of the latter, Torrent recalls that he “was a miracle coach and a great person.” From 1959 to 1960 he trained with the Barca first team and made his debut in a friendly in Manresa. “I was shaking and E.E. (Helenio Herrera) noticed my nervousness. I was 18, and I had to play with players whom I saw only on the cards. He told me to calm down, that I would eat all the opponents … And so it happened, I had a great match, ”recalls Joan.

    Condal were relegated in 1960/61 and Torrent was loaned to Segunda side Las Palmas. Another blue garnet legend, Ladislao Kubala, advised him to head to the Canary Islands, because there his game, similar in style to island school football, would make great progress. He guessed. Torrent shot while playing for Las Palmas, during which time he also served in the army (22 months as a volunteer) and found the love of his life. October 8 marks the 60th anniversary of his marriage to Violeta, a native of the Canary Islands.

    At Las Palmas, he played alongside Yellow legends such as Tonono, Germán, Gilberto, Ulasia, Juan Luis and Guedes, with whom he formed a historic duo in midfield. His third season at Las Palmas ended with a promotion to La Liga under Vicente Daudera. Torrent wanted to stay, but Barça demanded him back. He signed a three-year contract and made his debut under Cesar on 27 September 1964 in A Coruña (2-1 victory).

    That season, Torrent was blamed and infamous for Amancio’s injury in the Barça-Madrid match on 28 February 1965 years (dislocation of the peroneal tendon). The truth, however, was that the Madridista entered the Camp Nou pitch already in trouble, as he himself revealed when meeting Torrent at Chus Pereda’s funeral in 2011. Amancio did not appear on the field until October. And Torrent had to endure an unfair campaign of harassment and humiliation.

    With the start of the 1965/66 season, Barça’s new coach Roque Olsen suggested that he leave: “With Müller and Gallego you’ll be on the bench for a long time,” he told him. And Torrent, who wanted to play, agreed to a new lease. This time – in the “Sabadell” under the leadership of Pasiegito. He stayed there for two years, missing six months due to hepatitis and scoring a life-saving goal for Celta in the Liga play-off. Returned to Barça in season 1967/68 when Salvador Artigas was already the coach. He played only six matches, the last on May 31, 1968, in the Cup against Real Sociedad (6:1).

    Sabadell

    Torrent asked to be released and signed a contract with the Sabadell club for three years. There he was again met by Pasieguito and many former Barça players: Pujol, Vidal, Montesinos, Marañon, Alfonceda, Saballa, Pereda… He recalls that President Ricardo Rosson, a textile businessman, paid bonuses for winning with suits from his factories. During the time spent there, Joan managed to fill a whole closet with them.

    Bottom: Saballa, Montesinos, Seminario, Muñoz, Pujol

    After his stage with the Woolies, Torrent decided to stop, although he had offers, including from Cesar’s Cultural Leonesa. He retired in June 1971 and received a regional coaching certificate, but still played football at the end of the season 1972/73 with Girona in Tercer.

    Torrent managed clubs such as Palamos (brought to the next category), Esparreguera and Mollet (rescued from relegation), until in 1975 he received an offer from Laureano Ruiz to lead the Aleviins of Barca. And he remained on the coaching staff for 46 years, until 2021. During one of the screenings, he refused 12-year-old Sandro Rosel. “I sent him home and when he became president he reminded me of that,” says Joan, adding that the future Barça president thanked him for his frankness. Among his wards were Amor, Guardiola, Xavi, Gabry, Puyol, Piqué…

    In 2021, an employee of the club called him and said that he would not continue to work, and today Torrent regrets that after so many years he was not informed of the separation in a more beautiful way. Torrent is still linked to Barça through AJB. He started out with a socio card number 350 and is now number 13. “Unification is amazing,” he says. And he remembers the “brothers” Manchon, Tejada, Verges, Ramallets and Zhensana, with whom he experienced so many moments of real “blue garnet” passion.

    The Canary Islands are a wonderful holiday destination whose benevolent climate welcomes visitors throughout the year. This Spanish archipelago lies in the Atlantic off the coast of West Africa and is volcanic in origin. The four most popular islands are Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura and all have something different to offer. What they have in common is their great climate, their spectacular scenery, high standards of accommodation and service, good food and ample opportunities for shopping. If you dislike extremes of temperature, a Canary Island holiday will fit the bill. Summer or winter, it never gets too hot or too cold. In the summer there is a slight breeze which has a pleasant cooling effect should the mercury become unusually high.

    One of the attractions of a Canary Island holiday is that it provides winter warmth for sun-starved Britons without necessitating a long haul flight. This is a great advantage for those travelling with young children. The islands offer a diverse range of accommodation from top of the range all inclusive hotels and luxury villas to apartments on room only basis, thus ensuring that they cater for all budgets. Do check out the tariffs for all inclusive holidays especially if you are travelling with children. Constant snacking can be very expensive and it is easy to go over budget. You may find that this option offers the best value for money and at least you know at the outset the total cost of your holiday.

    The Canary Islands have a plethora of eateries from fast food and pub grub to first class restaurants that cater for all tastes and pockets. Every island has its own selection of tourist attractions and recreational facilities so there is always plenty to keep you entertained. You can choose from banana boating, surfing, sailing, water skiing and fishing. You can go whale and dolphin watching or big game fishing. Tourist attractions include water parks and amusement parks, bird and animal sanctuaries, camel and horseback riding, national parks and cave explorations.

    Canary Island holidays can be as active or as relaxed as you wish as there are resorts to suit all age ranges and interests. If you bring young children for a seaside holiday you’ll need to find a sandy beach. Being volcanic, although there are some natural beaches, many of them are coarse and dark and not conducive to castle building. There are of course manmade beaches with sand imported from the Sahara. There are many sheltered bays and coves where bathing is safe and there is a good provision of water sports.

    Many regional airports offer flights to the Canary Islands. You can search for holidays from your local airport on the Cheekytrip website.

    Save yourself time and money and find the best deals on Canary Island holidays on the Cheekytrip price comparison site. With over three dozen travel companies competing for your custom, you are assured of the best deal. To use our search engine, simply enter your point of departure, your destination and your dates and within a few seconds, we’ll find you the holiday that offers the best value for money. All you have to do is make a phone call. Offers change daily so if you wish to avoid disappointment, book today.

    Once again about the song of the Russian canary
    Most of the modern publications on canaries in Russian tell in detail about the origin, breeds, keeping, breeding, treatment. These texts move smoothly from one book to another, but it is almost impossible to find materials on singing in them. The reasons for this are in the fluidity, constant movement and variability of both the tastes of the breeders of the Russian canary, and in the work of the performers themselves, who are constantly changing something in the song. The same thing happens with the examination of singing at competitions. The evaluation scale changes and develops, the knees that make up the song come and go, new “moves” are created, old ones are forgotten. The latter is especially sad, since the course of the canary’s song could be created by several generations of breeders. Its features are a living manifestation of musical tastes, features of the national sound of folk instruments, the voices of forest birds and other sounds of native nature.
    How did the tribes “roller”, “pipe”, “bell”, “seagulls” mentioned in ancient texts sound 100 years ago? One can only hope that the old phonograph records are not all lost, and that modern canaries will have a chance to hear the voices of history. The work on creating a Russian canary song library seems to be the most important thing in domestic canary breeding today, also because the development of the song reflects the formation of national musical culture. The song of the Russian canary with its secrets of learning, the selection of teachers from among the outstanding forest singers, the best-sounding bells, bells, the manufacture of special pipes – “pipes”, which are a special art to play, should undoubtedly become the subject of the most serious historiographic research. Remarkable masters of canary singing of the last century, such as Ryabov, Shelyadov, Gorshkov and many others, who gave their own names to their own “moves” of the song, should take their rightful places both in the Museum of the Russian Canary and in the international encyclopedia of canary knowledge. The Russian Canary Support Fund plans to regularly publish collections dedicated to the problems of singing evaluation, training of young males, selection of Russian canaries, feeding features during the training period and other subtleties of educating class singers. We invite all canaries who are ready to share their own experience to send their publications to the address: kenarfond@yandex. en

    An example of a canary singing

    9. Teaching canaries to sing

    Domestic canaries can sing all year round, but they also have their singing season. It usually starts at the end of November. By December, their voice already sounds in full force, but the best singing can be heard from February-March and throughout the spring. At the end of summer and autumn, birds molt, during which they sing very weakly.

    Canary male sings. The singing of a female can be heard very rarely, besides, it is not very beautiful, contains many flaws and does not last long.

    Male canaries truly have unique vocal abilities. They not only skillfully imitate the singing of other birds, but also imitate human speech, and also reproduce musical phrases played on musical instruments, and even whole melodies. Some kenars are real virtuosos in this area.

    Over the years, canary breeders have carried out breeding work aimed at improving the natural abilities of canaries. As a result, significant results have been achieved.

    All this became possible due to the fact that representatives of many breeds of canaries, in particular the Harz canary, can inherit their singing abilities. Their song, as a rule, consists of several rounds, or knees, which are often performed in a special, strictly established sequence.

    However, canaries also need to be trained to sing. A bird may have an excellent heredity, but not be a good singer. In order for a canary to flawlessly perform a song that meets the breed standard, it must be trained long and hard.

    In the singing of kenars, in addition to the song itself, its structure and quality of performance, the voice of the bird is also evaluated. Rattling should not be heard in it, and individual notes should not be flashy, loud and sharp. Pure, strong, sonorous and at the same time gentle voices are most highly valued.

    Good singers should have at least 10–12 knees in their song. The best of them perform up to 14-15 different tours.

    Not all canaries have the same singing ability. Among them, as well as among people, there are especially gifted, who perfectly perform their song, there are mediocre singers, there are also mediocrity, whose singing is even unpleasant to listen to. The offspring of good singers, as a rule, for the most part will also sing wonderfully, but only if they are trained to do so.

    Bad singers also pass on their mediocrity. Not very capable are mixed species of kenars obtained from different song breeds, no matter how great singers their parents may be.

    Singing is usually taught to young kenars. This is a very complex process that requires a certain skill and a good musical ear from the teacher. A very important condition in the process of training a bird is also the correct maintenance and feeding. For example, the development of singing skills is facilitated by the transplantation of males from a passage cell into small single cells measuring 35 × 25 × 18 cm, and they should be transplanted immediately after the end of the molt.

    When transplanting each of the kenars, it is necessary to inspect, inflating the feathers on the breast and abdomen. It is very important to establish the physical condition of the bird – whether there are excessive fat deposits or excessive thinness with a protruding chest, etc. fatness. This factor is considered favorable for the development of singing.

    Some birds that have lived in the same cage for some time get used to being together, and at first they refuse to sing at all when separated. In this case, for the first 1–2 weeks, cages with birds should be placed side by side so that they can see each other.

    When the males get used to sitting alone, their cages are placed one above the other, and the rows are blocked with cardboard so that the birds do not see each other. From this time they can begin to train.

    Previously, special bird organ and various musical instruments – pipes, flutes, etc. were used to teach canaries to sing. Currently, electronic recordings of the best canary singers are used.

    At the same time, the live singing of “teachers” is still considered to be the best way of learning, which should be selected in advance for young kenars. Experienced canary breeders are very careful in this matter. The fact is that only the best singers are suitable for training, but finding them, all the more so, is not very easy to get. Kenars with outstanding abilities are very rare and, as a rule, are not available to a wide range of owners. In this regard, the “teachers” are often allowed canaries, which have small errors in singing, such as high whistles or small wheezing.

    Birds learn best from their father. However, if such a canary sings with many errors, and there is simply no way to find another good singer, it is recommended that the young male be left to develop himself, since he inherited the main features of the singing of his breed. On this basis, the kenar can independently create a song characteristic of a given tune. The new song may differ somewhat in content and be significantly inferior to the song of the trained bird, but it will have less marriage.

    The main skill of the kenar is the clear execution of the knees of the song with smooth transitions. The “teacher” must perform his song without dissonances that any student can learn and then repeat.

    The main teaching method is most often open. It lies in the fact that cells with males are arranged in one or more rows. In each vertical row, birds must be fenced off from each other with cardboard or plywood. It is believed that, without seeing each other, males will behave more calmly, less excited or excited, and the result will be more even and longer singing.

    All cages containing trained kenars must be rectangular and of the same size. The cells with the very first brood are placed in the upper row, and the cells with the males of subsequent generations are placed in the lower row. The cell with the “teacher” is placed opposite the cells with the “students” so that they can see him. There should not be birds of other breeds in the room, otherwise notes of other tunes will appear in the singing of kenars, as a rule, spoiling a good song.

    In the first weeks, the cages with the birds to be trained are slightly darkened. To do this, you can use blue, green or blue curtains. Some amateurs darken the entire room by curtaining the windows, but in this case, the cage with the “teacher” should be on the windowsill behind the curtain, without losing sunlight.

    Birds can be placed differently in the room. To do this, use a special educational cabinet in which you can place any number of “students”. There are many individual cells arranged in the cabinet, their back walls and front doors are glazed with frosted glass. Holes should also be drilled on the rear walls of the cells to allow fresh air to enter.

    In the absence of the study cabinet described above, an ordinary bookcase can be used instead, which is divided into the required number of cells and doors are attached to each.

    In any case, the amount of light entering the pupils’ cages is controlled by opening and closing the cage doors. Changing the intensity of light, in turn, is one of the important means used in the learning process. The fact is that, being in the twilight, the young kenar is not distracted by anything and listens more attentively to the song of the “teacher”. As a result, he will learn it better and more correctly.

    Educational cupboard for teaching canaries singing

    As mentioned earlier, the cage with the “teacher” is installed opposite the cupboard that contains the “students”, or in one of the upper cells of this cupboard. Poorly singing birds should be placed closer to the “teacher”, which will contribute to the better formation of their voices. The canary breeder must watch the singing of his pets every day and periodically listen to them. When sharp and loud trills appear in the singing of young kenars, he enhances them by darkening them so that the birds themselves sing quieter and better listen to the teacher’s singing.

    Over time, the incoherent sounds of young males, still completely different from beautiful harmonious singing, are transformed into separate knees – components of their future song. After about a month, differences will begin to appear in the tunes of males, which a beginner amateur may not notice. Therefore, it is recommended to invite an experienced specialist to listen to birds.

    The first audition of kenars takes place about a month after the start of training. To do this, they are released one by one from a darkened cage or placed in a separate bright room, where they have the opportunity to sing freely for 30–40 minutes.

    If a specialist finds errors and distortions in a bird’s song, the cage is immediately darkened, stopping singing. If these shortcomings are not corrected during the next auditions, the kenar is rejected as a singer.

    After listening to all the kenars, their cells should be rearranged. Males gather in separate groups, in the singing of which an approximately common set of knees is manifested. Thus, the birds are divided by tunes, in accordance with the developed inclinations. Arranged in this way, the cages will help the canary breeder to achieve the best coherence in the singing of birds and, as a result, the stability of their singing.

    When the various songs are finally formed, the cells with the canaries begin to darken at the same time, so that they sing better among themselves and further consolidate their tune. The song of the trained canary is finally formed by about 7-8 months of age. Cells by this time cease to darken.

    Self-taught singers form their own song, which takes much more time.

    Young, newly formed singers can already be used as assistants to the lead singer when training the later brood. But, first you need to make sure that the new singer really correctly adopted the teacher’s song and constantly maintains her plan.

    The plan or structure of the song is the constant alternation of knees in a certain order. This alternation should be correct and harmonious, and the transitions from one knee to another should be soft. In addition, the singer must perform the entire song at once from beginning to end and without stopping.

    It is considered a very beautiful technique when a canary, having completely sung the whole song, repeats its second half. Such singing is not only long, but also interesting.

    Using musical instruments

    To teach canaries to sing with the help of musical instruments, special air whistles are currently used, which reproduce the sound of various scatterings.

    The main part of this whistle is a soft sheet tube. The shorter and narrower it is, the higher the sound produced will be. Its volume is regulated by covering the top of the handset.

    At a distance of 2 cm from the upper end, a hole with a diameter of 2-3 mm is drilled, into which a beeswax partition or cork of the appropriate diameter and a length of 4-6 mm is inserted. The partition inserted over the edge of the tube must reach the cut hole.

    Attached to the bottom of the tube is a special reservoir filled with water. When it is empty, the whistle sounds like a non-vibrating scattering. Such sounds are used to teach birds to sing. A tank filled with water to a certain level gives the whistle the sound of a vibrating placer. The tone of the whistle is changed by replacing the tube with a tube of a different diameter.

    Use of electronic recording

    This method involves the use of recordings of the best canary singers. This method is convenient in that it does not require the presence of the “teacher” bird itself, which is very difficult to find. A high-quality recording may well replace a Kenar singer.

    Teaching canaries with such records is currently the most common method in the West. However, such training does not always end successfully, since this technique has not yet been fully developed.

    For Russian canary breeders, recordings of songs by good singers are often inaccessible due to high cost. In addition, owners of birds with a beautiful tune are usually reluctant to share their art with other canary breeders, wanting to preserve the uniqueness of their pet’s singing and sole ownership of a particular tune. As a result, the birds disappear without transferring their skills to any canaries, or they pass into the private hands of wealthy owners who acquire the bird rather just for fun, not caring about the development of the singing art of canaries. If, in addition, such an owner is a foreigner, this, as a rule, is accompanied by a sharp change in the conditions for keeping kenars. As a result, their song changes and most often the quality of performance suffers.

    For those who have the opportunity, some recommendations are offered for recording canary singing and using it in teaching:

    from learning and, worst of all, may be included in the song of the kenar;

    › the song of the kenar must be recorded several times in a row – subsequently, from these recordings, the most pure in sound and correct in performance is selected, or a montage is made from a set of separate knees assembled in a certain order;

    › it is possible to combine 2 different songs in one recording, but this is very difficult;

    › the best time to start teaching canar using notes is in the morning;

    › after each song, it is necessary to make an interval of at least 10 seconds – during this pause, the call of the kenar is inserted;

    › the student must listen to the recording for at least 40-50 minutes 4 times a day;

    › Recordings are recommended to be used only at the initial stage of learning, as well as to improve the song of the leading kenar so that he does not forget the plan of the song.

    Pupils with a good heredity easily perceive a recorded and played song, even if it is very complex in content. However, when they come out in full voice, it is necessary to move from the records to the canary teacher.

    It is useful to record the leading kenar during the molting of males, when they seldom sing. In addition, it is used in the case when a male is acquired with a song plan that has not yet been fixed.

    If all the described actions are correctly performed, the result will be sure even if the breeder has no previous experience in teaching canaries to sing.

    Once upon a time in an HFT company… / Sudo Null IT News

    My personal trading history, all coincidences are random.

    I started my HFT career at the Australian branch of one of the largest US trading companies as a C++ programmer. On the first day, I was greeted by an office with huge windows overlooking Sydney Harbor, one of which had “< 2ms” written in felt-tip pen. This has been a top priority for a dozen developers, but not yet for me. So...

    Initial shock

    One of the guys suggested the idea of ​​trading options on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), or rather, option spreads and their combinations with mandatory hedging. He needed something that could handle a bunch of confusing trading rules and be integrated with the trading platform we used, which was called Orc. It was the early 2000s and I wrote my own solution for it in VB6 under Windows 2000. I used C++, Boost, and Spirit’s multithreaded parser to integrate with Orc. The latter calculated binomial or trinomial trees to price American options on the ASX on demand. For my pricing code, I used someone else’s VBA code, rewritten line by line in C++.

    However, Orc didn’t always calculate the price on demand, it often used caching. If the original parameters remained the same, Orc simply returned the price from memory, instead of recalculating it again. This platform was too slow to compete with Timber Hill’s own platform (now Interactive Brokers) or IMC’s Ord Liquidator, which was the fastest boxed system at the time. She seemed too shabby to compete with others in terms of performance, no matter what tricks I pulled with her. However, with a large multi-dimensional option price cache (missing values ​​were obtained from it by simple interpolation), constantly updated in several threads by code written in C ++, suddenly we were able to make those transactions that were not available before.

    When I changed the interest rate or volatility curve in Orc Trader, my price cache started filling up again. Of course, this decision was not original. I first read about option price caching in an old article a few years ago. As in a modern microprocessor with out-of-order execution, you can guess the next calculations that may still need to be done in the future. Market prices are discrete. Remember, the fastest calculations are the ones you don’t have to do. The next idea was that beating zero latency is hard, but not impossible. I drew this strange conclusion about predicting the future from the fact that the fastest message is the one that does not have to be sent. I think this is even more important.

    In my opinion, the best architecture is no rigid architecture. This may sound a bit ridiculous, but it’s true in the case of HFT. Unstructured code instantly becomes legacy if you don’t pay attention to system architecture. Since, in fact, premature optimization is the foundation of everything, it’s best not to debunk common computer myths and let your competitors stumble over them.

    My Orc Trader hack wasn’t a perfect solution, but it made a few people happy with trades that weren’t possible before. They even looked happy when they saw these deals in the reports with their own eyes. However, overall it was only a minor success. In the future, it turned into hundreds of manual rules for finding deals, recouping only the costs of the operator with its trading. But at least I had fun.

    Focusing on “

    < 2ms”

    Let’s remember the “< 2ms” condition written on the window pane. I wrote an article suggesting a faster and more sophisticated way to achieve even lower latency. A team of three programmers, including me, had to implement it. The first choice fell on the Korean stock exchange. There was no need for price caching in this project, since the European option pricing model is not much more complicated than simple interpolation, even in multiple dimensions.

    At this time, processors with a frequency of 2-3 GHz were just beginning to appear. Our performance metric was a little off – we mostly measured latencies inside our code rather than those inside the operating system (which are actually much longer.) This still worked when the data came in at millisecond intervals, because at that time the network stack spent on packet processing from 50 to 100 microseconds. The main thing to remember here is when the processor can execute more than billion operations per second, then over a million instructions fit into these two milliseconds. To be honest, this is very, very bad code if this million instructions is spent on simple price calculations. If it takes you a million steps to decide on a deal, quit immediately. Here every nano second is important.

    It turned out that I was assigned to a team that was not very cohesive, and as a new employee, I had to be careful. There were only three of us in the development department. One of the team members (who was actually an excellent programmer) apparently got tired and began to spend all his working time on games and forums about video accelerators. “Mr. GPU” had previously written the company’s key libraries for multithreading, and they were not bad, although they suffered from design problems. All synchronization was done through mutexes and any operation required locks. I ended up using the C++ Boost library again. “Mr. GPU” apparently did not enjoy the project and looked like he was on strike of some kind. He was no doubt annoyed at having to work on my idea. The other guy was less capable, but still minimally competent. He usually ate a lot and constantly went to the meeting room to watch the next movie on DVD there.

    But we had to somehow manage to overcome these two milliseconds. As it turned out, I needed to write more code than expected – I had to stay up late several times. “Mr. GPU” did the job of integration, while “Remote Dude” did nothing at all. As a result, our new system showed delays of just under five microseconds. I thought it was a huge success. However, this figure did not take into account network delays. Definitely, they are now much more important than a month ago.

    One of the other employees congratulated me. From him, I learned that the bulk of IT people (including him) considered this an impossible task. Apparently, they hoped that I would fail. The changes I brought were not widely accepted, but I received a small bonus without a significant increase in salary.

    I used to expect to stay in this job for twenty years, especially after the dot-com bubble. But now it is clearly time for me to move on.

    Looking for a new job

    I contacted several HFT companies and shared my thoughts on what could be done. One good Dutch trading company listened to me very carefully, but offered nothing. Years later, I learned that their team started to implement something like what we talked about in the interview, the very next week after it. I heard that the approach was successful. They called it the “implied base method”, in which everything came down to predicting the theoretical price of a futures or underlying asset. I like their name for my method even though it looks like a cargo cult. Well, that’s the way financial companies usually do business. Despite their deceit, I was flattered.

    I then spoke to an Australian company with a team of about a dozen developers focused on trading on the ASX exchange. Their platform was basically even slower than Orc Trader, taking many milliseconds to calculate. I asked for a meeting with the head of the company, who was much more successful and much younger than me. He was one of the super-high paid guys whose income had to be declared under Australian law.

    Their business didn’t look “totally clean” and he warned me that the money they earned abroad was not always legally easy to return to the parent company. Negotiations with this firm were a waste of time – I don’t want to be a black hat. Gray “Finding gaps in the rules is a fun game, as long as it’s ethical. However, these are the red lines we shouldn’t cross. There’s no fun in winning by cheating, but more importantly, your reputation matters. ” People always underestimate the cost of scandals and I didn’t want to risk it.0003

    I also liked one of the investment banks that I spoke to. It was a branch of a large Wall Street firm. I have already worked for several years in this kind of environment. The entry threshold seemed pretty low—they didn’t want to make money, they just wanted to generate turnover at no cost, so their finance department could serenade the affiliate. This seemed like a good option to me and I was sure they wouldn’t mind generating turnover as well as making extra profit. Profits rarely cause complaints.

    The good thing about my previous firm was that they could lay off even earning employees. Someone broke the rules by making a few transactions that were not authorized. They made the company money, and I was impressed that they got fired anyway for violating the rules. This correct management position is extremely rare, especially in finance.

    Then, quite unexpectedly, another possibility arose.

    I once had lunch with a guy I knew in a computer science course at the University of Tasmania who was now working for ITG. He suggested that I speak to ITG as they were private traders. This was news to me – I thought they were just brokers. I met with their CEO, Asia Pacific, and he spoke in detail about their arbitrage platform, which works with USD and CAD denominated stocks. Then I met US CEO Ray Killian while he was on a trip to Australia. The meeting went well and there seemed to be no more barriers to the development of high frequency trading at ITG. The Asia Pacific CEO plus their chairman, who was also a board member of NYSE-listed ITG Inc., ended up taking the impromptu business plan and risk calculations to the US for a board meeting.

    What happened next I don’t know – I was told three completely different stories over the next few years. According to one version, the board approved the business plan, but Killian played everything back. According to another version, some members of the board did not approve the project. According to the third version, the business plan did not reach the board members at all. I don’t know which versions were wrong (perhaps all at once), but it didn’t matter. The guys from ITG decided to do without their employer and invest their own funds. It wasn’t quite the job I was looking for, but if the business went well, I could earn about a quarter of the shares in the new company through options vested over several years. It felt like a victory.

    Birth of an HFT company

    With an investment of AU$1.5 million, it’s time to start working alone with a laptop in the office again. I set up a few servers and workstations, installed 64-bit SuSE Linux, hired three programmers, and the clock for the investor-paid period started ticking. It turns out that I’m not a very good Linux system administrator. Soon I got tired of doing poorly admin tasks and entrusted them to a freelancer. Now there were four and a half of us. But it turned out that 64-bit SuSE Linux, especially on AMD processors with their Hypertransport bus, was not ready for prime-time workloads, so we returned to a 32-bit build of RedHat/CentOS. It was a wise decision by “Mr. SysAdmin” that moved us forward a bit.

    Four months later, we took a look at the prospect. We had to choose whether to launch on our ASX or go to Korea. Three Korean exchanges, KSE, KOSDAQ and KOFFEX, were just merging into a single Korean exchange, KRX. We chose Korea, although both the business and technical environments there were more complex and risky. However, there were more features there too, plus simpler math in pricing models and a small number of tools promised a more lightweight codebase.

    A funny thing happened at the same time. When creating a new system, you usually try to come up with some naming conventions to make your life easier. I decided to use ISO codes or part of them for standardization. However, due to the merger of Korean exchanges, no ISO code has yet been assigned for the new exchange. I contacted the responsible ISO team, who turned out to be the only excel spreadsheet guy sitting anywhere in Europe. He decided that the new code for the combined exchange would be XKOX. I gasped and wrote to him that this combination does not sound very euphonious in English. Perhaps a better idea would be to use the obvious codes KRX or XKRX? We laughed and so XKRX became the new ISO code. So now I can claim that I’m the one who created the ISO code for the unified Korean exchange.

    In those early days in Korea, traders, even high-frequency ones, could not get direct access to the exchange. You had to go through the broker’s gateway and use their specific API to connect. There was no collocation at all. Among clients, there was a large difference in delays that was not controlled by the broker, simply due to different locations and interaction technologies. Futures and options were traded on the KOFFEX exchange. KOFFEX itself was located in Busan, a port city a little over three hundred kilometers from Seoul. Derivative contracts for the KOSPI 200 index had a small denomination, but a large lot size. Because of this, they were the most volatile derivatives in the world, with a tenfold lead over the rest. The EUR/USD contract on the CME was number two and the options on the KOSPI 200 were number one. This turned out to be too much for KOFFEX, so the main trades in these instruments were carried out on their behalf on the KSE exchange in Seoul. So everything we needed from the exchange was located at one point in Seoul, although it itself was based in Busan.

    By this point, I already knew that the networking stack introduced the most significant latency that I could manage in our new implementation. I found a hardware ethernet protocol converter in InfiniBand that introduced a latency of 3 microseconds. It was made in the form of a module that was connected to the TopSpin InfiniBand switch. AMD’s Hypertransport (HTX) bus, an alternative to PCI Express, was more modern, resulting in lower internal latency. I bought several Pathscale HTX Infinipath NICs and HTX capable motherboards (they were only in alpha versions at the time, for example one of them had serial number 0x0000045!), put all these motley parts into a large case and got an expensive, but an extremely fast networking stack that I was very pleased with. He looked, of course, somewhat awkward and clumsy, but he was one of the most competitive in the world. For a few more years, regular NICs couldn’t match my configuration.

    Choosing a Broker

    After that, we went to Seoul to find a broker and a place in the data center. I went with one of the investors, a man named Bubble, who then became our employee. At first he was torn between ITG and HFT, but later he became completely at our disposal, since both the CEO and the chairman of the Asia-Pacific region, as well as other ITG employees, were our investors. It was he who was instructed to book a hotel in Seoul. It turned out that he had chosen a motel with hourly rates, seduced by a very picturesque artistic description that obscured the true picture – rundown, dirty, rooms with peeling air conditioning, a virus-infected computer. Not a very good start. Several brokers stopped by and expressed surprise at our area. It’s awkward, but funny. The trip turned out to be quite productive, we made a stunningly incredible deal.

    Good deal

    Muppetz Securities offered us a DMA service. The big firm I left didn’t have direct access. Before that, I was looking at an HP/Compaq/Tandem system at an old job, as it was one of the ways to get into a particular broker’s internal network to get closer to the exchange. It cost about US$500,000 for a small box created through HP’s custom in-house application development program. Seductive, but not for a business that is living its last days. The DMA service offered to us now was implemented on the basis of the X.25 protocol, which was then innovative for me. This broker deal was quite expensive, but since real direct access was unheard of before, I signed the contract a few days later.

    At that time, I met “Mr. Ree” from the local company RTS, who was passing through Seoul doing his own business. We helped each other in finding brokers in Korea. We used the RTS internal information system as a back-up store for our transactions so that shareholders can compare our data with those broadcast by independent vendors. You might think that the Orc platform would be the logical choice. I was familiar with Orc and at this stage it had the most user friendly interface. However, RTS had a much better API and cost an additional 10% of the monthly cost.

    Back in Sydney, I was looking at all this expensive InfiniBand equipment. Now it was useless – we were going to switch to X.25. An unexpected but pleasant turn of events. Then I got a message from the broker Muppetz Securities that he was canceling our trade despite the contract already signed.

    Some time later I learned that the Muppetz had gone to the big office where I used to work. X.25 was a very limited and rare resource. Why give it to some small startup HFT firm that isn’t even trading yet when you can go up a level and make a deal with real traders? Smart move, albeit unethical.

    It turns out that saying “no” has weakened the brains of some brokers. I believe a lot of HFT firms have been thinking about how to get direct access. It must be time. However, the cancellation of the Muppetz contract led to other, much better offers. One from Mr. M, a real gentleman and just an amazing guy with a good team. Its price was much better than the Muppetz and although technologically this connection was a brokerage access, the location was amazing – the connection point was right in the exchange building!

    I had no idea you could trade there. It turns out that this firm had a dusty, plain, air-conditioned room in an annex to the old KRX building. This old building, in contrast to the new building recently erected on campus, was connected by a corridor to the main tower, where the exchange engine was located several floors underground. This room was used as a place for emergency terminals. There was a small table in a narrow room with terminals with old CRT monitors. If the whole world were to end, employees would have to be sent there to enter the keys. This room was not adapted for a server infrastructure. Would we be interested in this little crappy room, which is the best they have to offer at the moment? I tried to hide my excitement by saying yes.

    Muppetz’s X.25 solution was technologically faster, but the connection point was in a building outside the KRX campus, which added latency. Someone was going to pay a big premium for a solution that wasn’t as cool as the one we just came up with.

    X.25 and technology

    The X.25 exchange infrastructure platform was interesting. You could count on a T1 or E1 class line (the exchange had both options and used them alternately) from Koscom, KRX’s main technology and network provider. Within the line, virtual channels were allocated at 64 kilobits per second (kbps) according to the principle of time alternation. Interestingly, because of this interleaving, you essentially have parallel access to the entire channel at the same time. The broker has a limited number of lines, but many parallel (though slow) channels.

    I did some testing and first bought X.25 NICs from a UK vendor. Popular enough to be worth mentioning, they seemed to be of industrial quality. Years ago, I was developing an information system for Citibank’s car leasing accounting system, and it used the X.25 protocol. The entertainment that this development gave me was only possible because I had an unfortunate youth in the pre-internet days – BBS, FIDO, Z-modem, Y-modem, that’s it. Most of the time at Citibank was spent fiddling with modems and other equipment just to get it all to work together. After that, everything was easy. But not with these network cards. Neither we nor the card vendor could get them to work properly. In the end, we had a conversation in raised tones, after which the seller simply stopped picking up the phone. We then bought some cheap NICs from the Canadian company Sangoma, which worked right away.

    We set up our server rack in our dusty workroom. I came with hand-built servers in a bag. Communication lines have not yet been allocated for us. The channel to the exchange will appear a little later, but now we urgently needed market data to prepare and set up our infrastructure. HFT requires a lot, a lot of data. The exchange solved this problem by running the twisted-pair cable through the air outside the building and leading it through a hinged window into our room, which we had to keep open at all times. When it rained, a little less water got into the room than one would expect. Twisted pair is connected to T1 modems. Modems, in turn, are connected to serial ports. Giant X.25 connectors, a legacy from the sixties, protrude from our Sangoma boards. Slow beats are big beats.

    Soon the line from the exchange was connected to send orders with even more gigantic X.25 reciprocal connectors. We had modules for working with Postgresql (soon replaced by versions with flat files), a trading engine in C ++, a service for calculating volatility, etc. Instead of leased lines, as we initially agreed, we used regular Internet channels. We took three providers who promised geographic independence and assigned routes to provide redundancy. Much cheaper, higher throughput and more reliable than leased lines. It was unusual at the time, but many do the same thing now.

    (Fal)start trading

    Nine months after launch, we finished testing. No certification from the exchange was then required. At that time it really was the land of cowboys. We started trading – there were 85% executions on options! This means either you can’t price options correctly (and anyone can sell you contracts at bad prices), or you’re always first in line and you’re doing well. We had mostly the latter.

    But we couldn’t make any money.

    Our original plan was to simply buy juicy options and hedge them with futures. We spent almost a million dollars developing a platform for this, and the balance of half a million remained in the brokerage account as collateral for our trading, we could not touch it. We may have time to grab the option, but all profits will evaporate if we cannot hedge it properly. We were constantly working on it, and things improved little by little, but the problem was not completely solved. I spent the night in the office and the rest of the team also worked hard. The performance of our trading engine was insufficient. In the end, I spit on everything else and, straining (as they say, “catching a bullet with my teeth”), rewrote it in 72 hours of continuous work. After that it got much better, but we found a new bug in the new trading engine. Internal application delays masked it, but it was noticeable in external measurements. The thread that wrote the logs was consuming the main thread time quantums, which cost us a lot of time. The correct solution was not easy, since we would have to set and check global flags. I just decided to give the main thread a real-time priority with the corresponding deprioritization of the others, and… hooray! – problem fixed. Although this was essentially a crutch, we got a stable delay, measured in two-digit numbers in microseconds.

    Deriving an implied volatility (IV) curve has always been an art. In my old office, traders used a manual IV fitting process, and every five or ten minutes (or hour) they adjusted their curve to match the market. A smart quantitative trader would eventually build a neat and reliable automated process. Here, too, I wanted the IV correction to be fully automated, but took a different approach. Using quadratic curves for valuation didn’t work for me, as it often resulted in an uncomfortable gap at the cash out point. We used more appropriate splines from the R libraries, added some small median filters, and some other statistical tricks. Now we calculated and published the IV curve every second. Later we even switched to quarter- or half-second intervals, but seconds were enough. This somewhat improved the situation and our option valuation seemed to be very close to reality. However, as a rule, we did not make money (or made very little.) It was time and running costs that killed us, not trading losses.

    We had another remarkable puncture. Mr. L has made some changes to the futures hedging mechanism that we have rolled out. The second we turned on the system, it instantly bought and sold on the market about a thousand lots of futures in a few seconds. We should have killed him immediately. The company could have died right then, but we were lucky to jump out of position.

    We tried, but still couldn’t make money. And these were no longer delays. The prices weren’t terrible. Our futures hedging mechanism was simply not efficient enough. We didn’t have the capital to “draw” the levels and use them to improve our financial performance. We tried to do passive market making on futures before trading options, but it didn’t matter. Nine months passed, this child’s gestation was complete, and sleeping in the office was less and less beneficial. It’s time to pray.

    Zero Strategy

    When you trade on the stock exchange, you are considered lucky if you get a part of the spread in your favor. At that time in Korea, ATM and lower options had a tick size of 0.01 pip. These 0.01 were worth about a dollar per contract. When trading a high-frequency robot with a series of options at once, if you are lucky, then you exit the transaction with an average of ten or twenty cents. One of my goals in this job was to surpass the turnover rates that I had seen before. I remember that the record in the last place was 1.13 million contracts per day. If you could trade a million options and take 10 or 20 cents each, you would be very happy. In theory, there is no difference between practice and theory. It was quite difficult for me to realize this.

    Then I remembered a conversation between one of the traders, Mr. B., and someone in the kitchen at the old firm (he ended up running the firm, by the way.) Mr. B. was asked if he bought on a good trading signal and made a profit , why doesn’t he immediately close the position? He replied that if everything was so simple, he would earn much more money than now. We had excellent latency with a good location and a direct X.25 link. The technology worked, the valuation model gave correct prices. Maybe we could do the impossible?

    I spoke to the shareholders and told them that I needed another 25,000 AUD to get through the month and try something new. The main investor issued a loan in the amount of 25,000 AUD. Mr. F., one of the original employees, coded what we called the Zero strategy. Everything was simple – not to have a directional position, to wait for an option to appear in the order book, whose price differs from our estimate by at least a tick. Then hit him. Wait. Then discard it and take the tick profit. Could it work?

    We will live!

    Our monthly trading income has become a healthy six digits. The Zero strategy worked. We increased the trading capital so that we could buy 500 or 1000 ATM options and then turn around and dump them back. There is no smart market making here. We were just being an aggressive taker.

    Being a market taker can be more problematic than being a maker. As a market maker, you have to get out of the way of the market when it goes against you, but you have to be stoic enough not to get too flighty and lose a valuable place in line. As a rule, your price threshold, after which you need to run out of the order book to prevent a loss, is less than that of an aggressor who uses a trading advantage. It looks like a strange game in which the aggressor actually has a delay handicap, since he is only ready to move after the maker has already made his move, all other things being equal. Or is it like a 100m sprint where the maker has a 50m lead and you have to chase him somehow. This analogy pretty much describes the Zero strategy. A direct connection via X.25 with wires running through a window and location on campus was enough to overcome the naivety of our strategy in those early days. Fortune smiled upon us.

    It was a kind of entertainment to watch the money appear in the bank account by itself after making a profit. It was a little surreal. We trade index options in Korea and Australian dollars appear in a bank account in Sydney.

    Some of the money I made went into a home cluster in our newly rented 200 square meter office on Hunter Street, lots of small mini-ITX computers on a cheap hardware store shelf, RAM boards, ATX power supplies, and a network switch. Implied volatility modeling, backtesting, and the strategy itself have all improved with a few hundred additional cores.

    The next step in our trading was the transition from the Zero strategy to a full-fledged hedging trading strategy. Instead of trying to hedge the position through futures, we turned to hedging with other options. We did not want to carry positions through the night, but were happy to hold them during the day. The Zero strategy kept a cumulative exposure of a few seconds throughout the day. The new strategy forced us to hold the position all day. This idea worked very well. About two-thirds of the KRX market consisted of options with low deltas and fairly static pricing. It was not unusual to see over a million lots of bids or asks in tiny options. However, buy these cheap options and it will be very difficult for you to dump them before the market closes. So we just focused on options with tighter spreads and larger deltas, tick size 0.01 with prices below 3.00. They accounted for about a third of the average market volume. We ended up growing to a typical 6-7% market share and sometimes over 10%. It is amazing that we traded about a third of the volume of the market we focused on. A normal piece of cake. Overcoming the previous speed record took place.

    Dealing with wires

    The idea for the first significant hack came from looking at a twisted pair cable that was run through a window. The modems for the T1 and E1 lines transmitted this signal through clumsy connections leading to an even larger box, which was then connected via huge connectors to the serial cards. A little research and an obvious plan was born. I bought some new Sangoma cards with T1/E1 channels from NetOptics connected with twisted pair and installed this assembly in Korea. When I was asked what it was for, I answered that it was for monitoring the state of the line and measuring delays. This statement was technically correct, but incomplete.

    The new Sangoma cards supported mixed mode, where the cards simply accept all the bits from the channel. I began to analyze them and understood what the flows looked like. X.25 virtual channels have been grouped into market data channels. They tended to follow each other in succession. There were other channel groups for puts, calls, and futures. I had to parse the HDLC layer myself, but soon I had decoded packets corresponding to the KRX channels. This bypass of the modem and network device saved about a millisecond.

    This was not unfamiliar territory. The Eurex exchange once provided a closed API – and it was hacked and the exchange protocol was reverse-engineered. After that, the official document on the technical regulation of membership on the exchange was adjusted so that it became a violation of the rules. Then this practice was stopped, but in Korea there was no such rule. Similarly, when ASX opened its first small co-location facility in Bondi, I noted that several client firms had 1U Dell servers installed, with no modems. Reverse engineering of the Nasdaq protocol wasn’t as uncommon as I had hoped – there are a lot of smart hackers out there.

    Cut off and discarded

    Things got even better in Korea. Now that I had bit by bit streaming (or at least byte by byte) I could see that the packets were wasting a lot of time on the wires. milliseconds. A common technique in network monitoring is slice, where you simply cut off the first part of a packet. I implemented this with my HDLC layer traversal code and now we were way ahead as we needed the bid and ask fields at the beginning of the quote packet. Save 100 bytes at 128Kbps and you’re ahead by 6.1ms. As the specification parameters grew and the KRX channels accelerated, our advantage decreased, but still remained acceptable. We were now submitting our orders before the input price packet was fully accepted.

    Sometimes the exchange swapped virtual circuits, and we were left with a slow cable until I decrypted new numbers. The rest of the infrastructure also slowly improved. Now we had cables running not through the window, but through cable channels from the building’s main switch. We also hung a small air conditioner over the window, which was very necessary, because the temperature in the rack was constantly rising. Our workroom was not a real data center. Then our bank sold its derivatives business and after a while the new owner decided that we were too small customers and ordered us to leave our office. Later I found out that he had his AI sales group in Tokyo, who really wanted our room for themselves.

    Another try

    We struggled to find a new home. We focused on finding several points at once so that the business would be a little more sustainable. The X.25 protocol had not yet become common knowledge, but was no longer uncommon. Someone named Dr. S. came to our rescue and placed our equipment in the data center across the street. This broker was a little smarter and understood that if we can see the entire physical data stream, then we can potentially see the orders of other clients. He was right – technically we could, but we haven’t done it yet. We had to set up a separate infrastructure for our own market data feed configuration. This broker did a great job and we were grateful for a smooth migration. The Muppetz experience was an exception. Brokers in Korea are good people.

    We set up the same infrastructure in a new location and kept looking. We noticed that the speed of market data on different sites was very different. We couldn’t get a GPS signal to synchronize the local clock over the network, but Korea used the CDMA mobile phone standard. Local manufacturer Endrun Technologies sold a nice little plastic box with which we were able to get a stable time signal. This device received a GPS signal inside CDMA and transmitted NMEA data plus (over another cable) pulses at ultra-precise intervals over the serial port. The CDMA specification promises jitter for precise time signals of no more than 10 microseconds, but in fact we got about one microsecond in Seoul. In comparison, one Canadian CDMA operator showed an accuracy of about 5 or 6 microseconds.

    We ended up co-located in the KRX underground data center. Getting inside was quite difficult due to strict security. Having traveled a long way underground, I noticed that a cell phone signal was being picked up inside the data center. I put our CDMA receiver in a rack and it worked – we got the exact time from the intermittent cell signal until something inside burned out. Suspecting that I needed to put in a more efficient antenna, before my next trip to Seoul, I bought a white flexible antenna a meter long and soldered an SMA connector to it. When I went down to the underground bunker of the KRX data center and put the big white antenna on our rack, the guys from Koscom looked at me very suspiciously. I don’t know what they thought, but several other people over the years have mentioned that they saw my white antenna lying on top of the rack in the KRX.

    Now we had the exact time at all points of presence and we needed to establish data exchange between them. We found that a few blocks away from campus, we were getting 300 microsecond latency between our locations over the city’s ten megabit Ethernet connection. This was a very good indicator and we coordinated all of our market data and orders on these internet lines. In Korea, the Internet is wonderful and we had enough of it then. Milliseconds of benefit from receiving market data from all points of presence at once improved trading. While our best orders came from the stock exchange campus, the fastest market data came from a location a few blocks away. This turned out to be quite unexpected and that location remained the best place to get market data for several years.

    A little later, we set up market data at a new point in the annex to the KRX exchange building and the delays there turned out to be huge. This was the first time I ran into Citadel in Korea, I could tell by the timestamps on the network packets – they can tell you anything if you know how to listen to them. We asked to disable this channel, Koscom stopped the transmission and physically disconnected the line. After a month or two, we paid to reconnect, they turned on the same line without changing anything, and now it was one of the best. Such were the vagaries of life in Korea. I suspect that some new kind of round-robin balancer somewhere in the middle could improve the situation. For other oddities observed there, I could not think of any obvious reason.

    Virtual channels for sending X.25 orders were 64 kbps each – this one is extremely slow. I thought we could use the same hack with Sangoma cards and started writing code that would send a packet with an order before it was fully formed in memory, which would save us milliseconds. After sending the order, we could turn the package into an invalid one, if suddenly the market situation had time to change and the order being sent was no longer needed. However, our small team was already very busy, and this task was not a priority, because our trading performance was already quite good. We learned more about implied volatility modeling and fine-tuned strategies.

    Only change is permanent

    Exchanges never stand still and KRX was no exception. They began to abandon the X.25 protocol and moved to Ethernet and TCP/IP. The exchange planned to use TCP for sending orders and UDP for market data. The trading efficiency of our X.25 hack was starting to fade. We have become too fat with our trading engine and strategy. The performance of our trading engine hasn’t improved much from the original 300 microseconds, it’s bloated. The guys at some stage repeated my 72-hour hackathon and turned the engine into something more traditional, simple and fast. Oddly enough, we didn’t really care about a hundred microseconds here or there right now, for we were pursuing strategic and tactical goals. Compared to the rest, we actually had negative latency due to the network adapter running in promiscuous mode, modem bypass, and our own HDLC parser. Our orders were still leaving before market data was received by the rest of the market participants.

    We wanted to try X.25 pre-shipping, but we didn’t have people available to spend a couple of months programming, especially since X. 25 is coming to an end. All X.25 code would be useless a few months after this project was completed. However, the idea needed to be tested, and I talked to the guy who wrote most of the software at Sangoma. He was the main developer and did the bulk of the work of writing the device driver. Maybe he can recommend someone? He said he would do it himself as a side project from home. There were some problems because the code of these drivers was very confusing with the abundance of goto statements in C, but even if this is not a very good style, the drivers worked stably. This code wasn’t supposed to last more than a few months, so it seemed like an acceptable risk. Testing took a little longer than expected and pre-submission worked, but performance was terrible. The code was so devilish that the “fast” path ran slower than the regular path. However, we did not have time to rewrite the entire code for this idea again.

    Changes to TCP support on KRX turned out to be a simple mapping of X. 25 virtual circuits to TCP sessions. You can have multiple TCP sessions open at the same time (which they call PIDs) to send orders. The market data transmission format has been ported unchanged to work over UDP. I don’t remember if they added encryption to the TCP version immediately at launch or a little later, but now when sending an order, the entire data packet that comes immediately after the TCP header must be encrypted using the ARIA cipher, and this was a mandatory requirement . ARIA is the national Korean cipher. It is very similar to AES with a slightly different S-Box layout. This is a good cipher.

    We saw that the new TCP-based architecture was going to shake up the market and potentially destroy much of the big brokers’ business. Good old X.25 was slow, but channel interleaving meant you had many parallel paths to send an order that could be shared. In the new world of TCP, there were a limited number of sessions, two or four, and all clients had to send their orders through these connections in turn, despite the seemingly many PIDs. As a result of this serialization, client requests queued up at the broker. The race condition now arose not only on the stock exchange, but also within each broker. Large brokers could lose their market share as the available communication lines could only support a limited number of HFT clients. In addition, the speed at which orders were sent increased, the sizes of market data packets also increased, and the rate at which market data came in did not grow proportionately to keep pace. The exchange was confidently moving towards a complete mess, and we understood that we had to somehow get ahead of this process. It was time to increase the number of our communication channels, which meant even more brokers to open accounts with.

    We went to Seoul to look around and were able to get some architectural diagrams that the Koscom provider kindly attached to the brokers’ racks. There was a backbone with a bandwidth of 622 Mbps, covering the entire city and having several branches that went to brokers. In the racks we saw our old friends – T1 and E1 modems. This was good news – we could continue to use the old tricks to get market data. Our new configuration included several T1 modems that were plugged into relatively inexpensive Cisco switches. If we could listen to the T1 twisted-pair stream after the main switch decrypted the packets from the common optical channel, everything would be fine.

    The transition to TCP caused a lot of confusion for KRX and everything happened exactly as we expected. Major brokers such as Samsung Securities lost their market share as they were deceived by the exchange about their ability to serve their large customer base efficiently. Market data delays became common as the exchange was now accepting orders faster without a proportional increase in seed branch performance. But we’ve already done a good job of using stock timestamps to track delays in market data. Puts, calls and futures came through different channels and usually only one (and sometimes two) was delayed. We sensed this imbalance of delays and switched to hedging mode. Several times we talked about taking advantage of the situation at those moments when we knew for sure that others were receiving highly distorted market data, but these improvements were not included in the working plans. Sometimes the imbalance of channels led to serious delays – when the data was already tens of minutes behind – we stopped everything. As soon as the imbalance disappeared, our engine automatically resumed trading.

    Working with the network in promiscuous mode was interesting and did not break the rules, because I don’t think their compilers knew about it at all. Switching to TCP/IP instead of X.25 required the use of firewalls, but we learned that some local traders were working around them. It was clearly against the rules and therefore we were not ready to do this. If you break a clearly written rule, you can be completely disconnected from the KRX exchange. Moreover, she did not have a reconnection procedure explicitly prescribed in the rules if you were once kicked out, so the decision may be completely final. We calculated that our advantage was much greater than the delays on the firewall, so as long as these clients did not listen to everyone and cut packets, our advantage was out of danger and those guys were barking up the wrong tree. I recently found out about another local group trading around the firewall in Korea. So it happens, but now it’s rare.

    FPGA hack

    We also managed to improve our market data hack. We were a small firm with a few people named Thomas. It’s incredible, but the eighteenth hired employee became our sixth Thomas. Part of the blame for this lay with me – I knew about the “Thomas problem” and, for fun, looked for graduate students with this name in different places. I noticed the new Thomas at UNSW in their NICTA group. He was preparing for his PhD and wrote an interesting paper on distributed shared memory on Linux, including a version for Itanium processors. I had come across this before, so I made a deal with him and he started working part-time as soon as he got his PhD. One of the cool things he did was crack the Sangoma NIC firmware we were using. These cards were based on a small FPGA chip from XILINX, namely the Spartan 3 model. He accessed the flash memory in the FPGA and found some registers that we could control. Soon we had our own working firmware for it, and we were able to completely bypass the stock Sangoma firmware with its promiscuous mode. Sangoma has become the main equipment supplier for us. The discovery that the Sangoma networking stack cost us almost a full millisecond came as a shock to us. The latency of our homemade networking stack was only about ten microseconds.

    Since we planned to enter other markets, we began to explore the FPGA more closely. Some time ago I almost started using FPGA instead of TopSpin’s Ethernet to InfiniBand converter. After tinkering with it for some time, I approached an FPGA company called Celoxica back in 2004 to find out about their technology. When we first started our HFT project, I asked Celoxica to come up with a solution to receive data over UDP. Trading was a new direction for them then, but they did some preliminary research and returned. Celoxica had some code for UDP over Ethernet decoding that they used in an embedded car entertainment system in Germany that could be repurposed to suit our needs. We explored it a little, but this option turned out to be too expensive. Years later, I was talking to one of the CTOs at a large Wall Street Bank who told me that he started talking to Celoxica about trading around the same time as I did. Therefore, Celoxica began development in this direction and subsequently it became an important source of income for them. Their VHDL add-on, which they called Handel-C, was quite beautiful, but, unfortunately, it could not fully meet the requirements specification. We eventually dived into FPGA development, which included the exploration of yet another language, Impulse-C. He was pretty cool, but we went back to VHDL because our design fit his model better.

    Our new SANGOMA firmware worked great for us. However, just as Einstein imagined himself running next to a beam of light, we wanted to hit the first bit, an electron or a photon, arriving at the broker. This means that we must be connected to a common fiber optic cable entering the building. This fiber was connected to a Telco communication closet from which E1 modems protruded. We wanted to get right into the optical line, bypass all network devices and leave E1 copper behind. Nowadays, you can easily buy a lot of FPGA cards that already have the necessary network connectors, but then we could not find anything that could work at the 622 Mbps speed that Koscom showed.

    So we designed our own PCB to get the PCIe network adapter we need. We directly brought the SFP connector to the FPGA chip from XILINX and nothing more. We have previously made some circuit boards for T1/E1 adapters which we have packaged in a small black plastic case to simplify our infrastructure. Those circuit boards only cost a dime or two each and helped save our nerves as we no longer needed active adapters from NetOptics and our cabling became simpler. Our FPGA adapter was very simple by the standards of FPGA devices, but not a simple thing for us. We brought these adapters and several NetOptics passive optical converters to Korea. After midnight, when everything was quiet, we ran into the cables and plugged our adapters into the gap. Now we had a signal, but it was completely incomprehensible.

    Back in Sydney, we analyzed the mirrored bitstream and struggled to understand the signal. In the end, we guessed that the architectural scheme that hung on the racks in Korea was wrong. We actually received an STS-3/STM-1 optical carrier with a speed of 155 Mbps according to the OC3 specification and now we could decode this stream. We had more bandwidth available and were even able to find our own orders in data packets, which made us very happy. Other clients’ orders were encrypted (and that’s for the best.) Now that there were many more 64 kbps channels to scan, we had to write our own tools to find the necessary data, because everything changed too often. In the end, we ended up moving to our own star optics in a rack near the KRX campus anyway, using our FPGA adapters, which proved to be quite suitable for arbitrating and coordinating as many as eight points of presence.

    Preliminary Order

    Now I wanted to try that new KRX order trick. Since it was a TCP protocol, we could also immediately send part of the packet with the order to the channel until the entire incoming packet was received and decoded – these are just bytes. The secondary TCP header was fine, so we would have saved quite a lot. However, we had two problems. First, if we didn’t have an order ready to ship, what would we do then? Every N seconds we had to send a heartbeat packet if the PID was not in use. We couldn’t send a trash bag to the exchange, because then we could draw too much attention. Since we were behind a firewall, we could only work with the contents of IP packets, and no Ethernet checksum invalidation or other similar tricks at a lower level worked from here.

    A cancel command for an already canceled or filled order seemed like a good message – this often happened during normal engine operation. So we sent her. Each time we randomly chose an order ID to avoid repetition. We occasionally received emails asking about these cancellations (which were sent by a smart broker), so we made a disguise – when the market was quiet, the engine would fall back to the tactic of sending heartbeats packets. All this worked fine in the unencrypted test network segment, but we still had to solve the problem with the ARIA cipher.

    It’s worth noting that even on a 1Gbps link with FIX 4.2 protocol (like those used on the US BATS exchange prior to the 10G ubiquity), the savings on this pre-sending still works if you’re using an FPGA. For every 25 bytes you save 200 nanoseconds. Sending an invalid checksum of an Ethernet packet at the end will usually prevent the switch from processing the packet.

    Cracking the ARIA cipher

    I wrote a letter to Seoul University, which was the owner of the cipher, and they sent me the original C code for the 8 32-bit versions of the cipher. We looked at it and were able to change the handshake process to broadcast the session key to the outside and after that we were already able to encrypt messages correctly. There was some questionable aspect to the whole encryption business model as you had to pay a royalty of several thousand dollars a year to the firm to use their official open source encryption library, however everyone in Korea was paying for it.

    Using our own implementation of ARIA, we have become much faster without the official library. In the end, we wrote our own SIMD version, which worked even better. Our reversed encryption allowed us to wrap our entire trading cycle in less time than the service code of the original cipher was forced to execute.

    Now we could finally send the provisional order over TCP. On this, we first saved a few milliseconds, then this gain was gradually reduced to hundreds of microseconds with an increase in the speed of the channels. Our advantage was actually even more than a simple reduction in latency. The Koscom switches worked on a “buffer then send” approach, so small packets traveled through the entire system faster and the resulting improvement in response time was a little better than we expected.

    There are many other open source implementations for the ARIA cipher today, and your Korean life might be easier than ours.

    Shake your wings

    We also tried some packet fragmentation techniques. A network device may split a packet into fragments for various reasons. The default Unix stack will hold fragments in a buffer for sixty seconds and reassemble them. If nothing else arrives, the packets will be dropped. The idea was to first send the possible tail fragments of the packet, then send the correct middle or leading fragment and let the switch reassemble the entire packet. The line speed was so slow that it could save hundreds of microseconds.

    We tweaked the network stack code to test this idea. Fragmented packages didn’t work at first. However, after reducing the interval between fragments to less than two seconds, everything started up nicely. It looks like the switch treated the packet fragments as a denial of service attack or something similar if the interval was too long. He should probably not miss them at all, but who are we to argue with him? Using this approach, you could have prepared packages waiting right in the path to be merged with other fragments later. However, the two second interval was a problem as we consumed a lot of valuable bandwidth trying to keep this temporary packet cache alive. We had a better idea.

    We have already sent the first part of the message in the first packet. Why not send the later part of the packet with the next TCP sequence number plus one, and then send the middle part of the sequence outside that numbering, containing the ticker, price, and quantity?
    This final part of the package had fairly large custom fields, so we would save a huge amount of time and get a lot more than with the pre-submit we were already doing. There was only one big obstacle to this plan.

    ARIA cipher was used in block chaining (CBC) mode. This means that the encryption of subsequent bytes depends on the contents of the previous ciphertext. Because we didn’t know the middle of the package before pre-shipping, we had a problem.

    If the last bytes of the packet with the order could be random garbage, it wouldn’t matter, since decryption would turn garbage into garbage (which would be acceptable.) Unfortunately, some important fields must be filled in after the large custom field at the tail of the package. In addition, the KRX exchange was afraid of zero bytes in packets. She and her technology provider wouldn’t allow it. Koscom seemed to have an unfounded fear that something might explode or terminate prematurely if a null byte were present in the packet. However, having a bunch of zeros in the encrypted stream was allowed because they couldn’t control it. The ciphertext with zeros seemed to force a mini-reload (state reset) in the sequence of blocks due to the CBC XOR operation with one zero operand. That is, it is enough to generate data, after encryption of which a zero byte appeared, in order to interrupt the chain of dependence of blocks on each other. This generated data can result in anything after being decrypted, even illegal null bytes.

    Our hack was to pass this generated data in a custom field in the batch, and also save the middle chunk with a few characters of that same field. We have to fragment the TCP packet by breaking the user field into two pieces. You have a 90% or more chance that the garbage you have in your custom field is not zero. If you check this when preparing your middle packet and see that it is not, you simply cycle through a character or two in the user field in the middle packet (i.e. the last one already delivered) until you find a completely non-zero sequence in the ciphertext. This hack can save you a lot of time.

    Machine learning

    The biggest improvement we’ve ever made to a strategy didn’t come from these low-level tricks. We used Random Forest (RF) to work as a machine learning layer to predict the future theoretical price. I first assigned this task to one of my PhDs at the firm (we had six. ) He seemed to be a math genius and had a PhD in physics on some kind of singular cosmological model, and was also a good friend of mine whom I hired several years ago and taught him C++. He subsequently lectured on C++ at the University of Queensland. I also hired one of his graduate students, whom he taught C++ (it’s funny that the company had several generations of C++ learners.) I tasked him with developing a machine learning layer using RF for the strategy. He came back a couple of months later and showed me all the things he tried that didn’t work and then explained to me why it would never work at all and why it was all a waste of time.

    I had already come across this method in graduate school, so I decided that it was better to do everything myself again. I picked up an OpenDT v5.2 package that ran via MPI on our mini-ITX board cluster. Now it has grown to over a thousand cores with motherboards screwed to chipboard shelving, and power supplies nestled in perforated metal shelves at the top. Two weeks of running OpenDT on this cluster helped me make a decent decision. I could replicate that result using the original code from the author of the Random Forest method, Leo Briman. I threw my work over the fence to Mr. L. (the guy who sent a thousand orders per second to the exchange, which almost killed us then) to roll out into production. He was a decent programmer (albeit an introverted dude) and everything was ready in two weeks. We saw an immediate increase in profits of about a third – it was a good month.

    Further improvements and adjustments to the ML layer yielded greater returns. We have become very dependent on it. Creating a fast response random forest was hard work, as accessing a huge amount of memory at random is the bane of low latency. In later projects, I did it a little better. After about a year or so, it became clear that if we turned off ML, we would not be making any money at all. However, we never really explored whether this was due to our strategy or if one low latency was no longer enough to win. I suspect the second. I’ve seen smart players like Jump set up dozens of servers in Korea and they clearly haven’t been using them to idle. There was enough ML in the air.

    One mature way of thinking about ML is that it’s just a latency reduction technique. He buys you time by trading in uncertainty. You react early, but you can be wrong. However, even the best arbitrage bots do not necessarily get filled on all of their orders. It’s more correct to think of ML as a way to get additional anchor points in the space of delays and uncertainties.

    Canary

    Another hack that I should probably mention that is common knowledge is the canary technology. The CME was criticized by many traders some time ago, as the Wall Street Journal published a study showing that some traders were getting their orders filled before the market data that would have triggered those orders came in, and this speed advantage gave them an edge. over regular members. This is a fallacious argument, since the speeds of two such different processes can never be the same. This is rather a reason to introduce additional processing code to receive information simultaneously from the slow market data channel and the fast order execution notification channel.

    There are several exchanges where the situation is different. Nasdaq was one of the first exchanges to deliver market data faster than order notifications. It was a trap for young players who didn’t expect this.

    In my first experiences with the KRX, the canary would have been triggered a second before the market data. Let me remind you that a canary is a limit order that you placed in advance at the depth of the glass, and not at the best level. Thus, when the market suddenly jumps to a new price level, your canary starts to sing, letting you know about the move a second before the rest of the market. If you can’t make money from that either, your skull must be filled with stones instead of brains. Well, I found some rocks in my head.

    It was strange. Sometimes, the price difference between these two channels was so big that you could see the market go up and then down. If it’s naive to buy on that first move up, the market can give you problems when it goes down. You could instead try to pre-time these events so you can buy low and sell your contracts right away.

    Too much knowledge was a funny problem. We have integrated this code into our data handler. One of the guys, Mr. F., called this event “star power”, like the Mario brothers.

    Jitter vs Delay

    You may recall how the KRX integration of three exchanges didn’t really affect KOSPI futures and options as they were already trading in Seoul on the KSE. The united exchange KRX closed the data center in Busan and everyone moved to Seoul. However, the government did not achieve its political goals and the Busan data center eventually reopened.

    Banks and brokers in Seoul spent a lot of money on these transfers. Sometimes it turned out that there was no peering between two data centers in Busan, and market data first went to Seoul and then back. Disorder. Only now, in 2016, the KRX exchange has moved back to be centered in Busan. Before that, the best solution was to collect market data in Seoul, and sending orders to Busan was expensive and inefficient. All HFT firms (like us) considered building their own lines between Seoul and Busan, however, Koscom banned this in order not to lose their revenues. You could only buy expensive lines from Koscom, which is what all brokers did. As a rule, you fought for channels that gave a delay of 2.9up to 3.1 milliseconds. Pretty slow for a 300 km straight cable or a 400 km road. Only in the last couple of years have several microwave radio relay links appeared.

    At the same time, the KRX data center has evolved from the world’s largest commercial platform on HP/Compaq/Tandem hardware to an AIX platform running on the IBM PowerPC architecture. Before this migration, we were getting 11-12ms round trip (RTT) pings on order send lines with about 130ms jitter. After moving to Busan, the ping was over 20ms, but the jitter was down to 30ms. Even though latency doubled on average, reducing jitter made our strategy more efficient.

    This is similar to when CME reduced jitter by replacing its gateways with iLink’s FPGA based hardware. Randomness decreases and speed becomes more important. The difference with Korea was that the delay actually increased for KRX, but as traders we don’t care, more important is the answer to another question – is my effort worth it? The new platform has improved our ROI in Korea. Similarly, I expect that less jitter, as a result of constantly reducing intra-exchange delays (not only on the CME, but on exchanges around the world), will continue to divide traders into those who can trade quickly and those who cannot. Delays continue to matter, even if they are not critical.

    Competition

    It’s worth mentioning what happened when Getco came to Korea. I don’t know much about them in a practical sense. The first thing I heard was constant complaints from brokers. Getco manages some pretty tough deals, and since they know how to make money from it, it worked in Korea too. There were rumors of amazing deals with the brokers themselves so that they could increase their market share. Perhaps this is not too different from the Canadian deal with CIBC? At the time, Getco was rumored to have paid a very low fixed price (perhaps as little as a few thousand dollars) for a Canadian broker to secure market share for CIBC.

    I started reading reports about Getco taking 5% of the market. Someone told me that this figure was closer to 15%. Many brokers complain about their clients not getting enough commission from them. The local community was quite vocal and frustrated about the arrival of Getco. But we weren’t upset one bit, at all. We were diversified enough and traded strategies that no one else had, so very few people could even understand what was happening with us. However, it served as a lesson – Getco brought in new people by trading more effective strategies. Many people lose their income and complain, the press spins a scandal. You start reading stories about how unfair the market is. It’s not like that – just an echo from the screams of the losers. This is the sad story you hear over and over again in the markets as traders fight for market inefficiencies and the effectiveness of their technology. The market is improving, but the complaints are getting louder.

    What we did worked and was acceptable in Korea, and it was acceptable in many other countries. But not, for example, in Eurex. The rules differ from market to market. If you are a portfolio manager, you now realize that you no longer want to play this game. It’s a tough competition, with hundreds of smart traders like me constantly coming up with new strategies. But you do not need to play on this field. A high frequency trader like me is next tick oriented. That’s all we care about. We’re spending huge amounts of resources pushing our fellow HFTers out the next tick. I don’t care about your portfolio alpha. It’s beyond my horizon, beyond my concern.

    I lose a lot and win a lot during the day. The HFT firm described here, which I founded in May 2005, I left in January 2011. We had only eight losing days in all this time on our main trading strategy. In four of them, the loss was less than 1,000 USD and in all of them it was less than 10,000 USD. It’s not as good as the famous Virtu (1 day out of about 1200 according to their IPO paperwork), but I’ve come to terms with it. However, remember that among the transactions there are a lot of those that cannot boast of a high financial result. We only earn a small portion of the spread, usually 10% on a normal day, 5% on a bad day and 20% on a good day. Options expiration days have sometimes given us 50% as many traders try not to trade on those Fridays every month.

    The law of large numbers allows HFT to make money every day. The same law states that if we lose our technological advantage, we will either not be able to trade at all or we will lose money every day. HFT companies often fail and leave. It is a tough industry, constantly delving into the infrastructure and microstructure of the market in order to improve its efficiency. And it will be a thankless job if people don’t understand that today’s rooster can instantly turn into a feather pillow when a company like Getco comes to your city. I’m sure the arrival of Jump also brought in a few dusty pillows.

    Korea is a funny place, as the infrastructure of the KRX exchange is still a complete mess. There are many more ideas that can be implemented in a slow, clumsy and secret infrastructure. HFTers love clutter because they can dig through it and find advantages for themselves. It’s not that difficult, it just needs more attention to the smallest details, because any complexity consists of simple things. Oddly enough, HFTers hate exchange colocation and low latency, as it is much more difficult to find an advantage there. HFT players also love venues that few people know about… Nobody wants to be ambushed.

    Portfolio Manager

    Don’t worry about the next tick. Reward market structures like ETFs that are competitive, fair, and cheap. Then you can stand and rejoice as these HFT companies kill each other for the lowest spread. This allows the liquidity they provide to work for you, regardless of their motives. After all, only buying higher and selling lower (ie narrowing the real spread) works in competition for the next tick. This is not a recipe for easy money in HFT.

    HFTs are afraid of portfolio managers – they wield a big information club that kills HFTs. Large orders move prices, which prevents the market maker from earning his spread. Asset managers even think differently. Each order execution is a desired trade, even if the market has gone further against you and the account has a drawdown, and the loss is simply an expense that is always within your model. In HFT, execution is a risk, a drawdown is a disaster, and a loss is just a shrug.

    A portfolio manager must use algorithms and the magic of market efficiency to improve the quality of their order execution. You don’t want to hire twenty people at once just to compete for a position in the queue on the next tick? You should be more afraid of machine learning-based quantum funds that are steadily automating your alpha. Worry about frustrated HFT traders who decide to change models and invest long term to compete directly with you. I see that both are already happening.

    Very few brokers offer competitive solutions, but for the most part everything seems a bit stale. A portfolio manager of a large fund with a large team can make additional profits by deploying their own algorithms and DMA platform so that their traders can trade more aggressively and frequently, in the same way that floundering HFTs look at their time horizon. But beware – it’s a slippery slope…


    Previously published under the pseudonym Thomas Anderson. This text omits the sex, drugs, and rock and roll from the original draft, as it would add nothing to the trading story. Perhaps this will help justify my decision to turn down a job I enjoyed. In any case, all this is best left unsaid, even if some personal relationship is missed.

    The deal for De Gea and Navas failed in the last seconds, Manchester United buys Martial for 80 million, Kokorin was not released to Arsenal.

    Online closing of the transfer window

    31.08.2015, 10:00
    53

    Today is X day for most European clubs. FootballHD.ru throughout the day will follow the loudest transfers. Stay with us!

    02.25 All this, of course, is insanely interesting and funny, but it would be time to be honored to know. All other information – tomorrow in the new online on the Premier League. Thank you for being with us and see you soon!

    02.24 We decided that UEFA would make the decision tomorrow. How many more details are waiting for us?

    02.17 And more details. The documents were sent with a delay of 20 seconds! Twenty! But the deadline is made by a machine, not a person. And she has no heart. There is also a version that the turmoil occurred for a very interesting reason: United employees sent documents in a format that was not opened either in the Blancos office or in the Spanish football federation. Maybe Enigma encrypted it?

    02. 14 More trash! The Guardian journalist Daniel Taylor breaks into our online and claims that, firstly, there is a special mark on the Manchester United documents, which indicates that everything was done on time, and therefore the Navas transition was completed; secondly: “Real” is furious and intends to seek a review of the decision. It’s understandable, “United” in chocolate with three great goalkeepers, and “Real” with Casilla. This is karma.

    02.10 Colleagues gradually finish online and go to sleep. But how can you sleep here when there is so much fun around? Therefore, we will sit for a while, and then we will disperse.

    02.04 Clubs still blame each other and can’t figure out what to do about it all. “Madrid” assures that they have proof that everything was done on time. But there is an opinion that instead of papers, a fax came to the office of Real Madrid with the following content:

    02.00 And who are our kings of scams?

    01. 57 Ricky van Wolfswinkel , aka PigWolf, went straight from the Norwich Championships to the Provincial Betis. And he was interested in “Spartak”, which is not difficult to see the irony.

    01.52 Manchester and Madrid employees begin to swear and exchange complaints. And on Woodward they already draw such photoshops.

    01.46 Ahaha! Everything is more fun and more fun with us. It turns out that the deal was executed late for one reason – at the last moment, changes were made to one of the clauses of the contract. Guess who. Keylor Navas! This is how you win the competition!

    01.44 In general, we have complete surREALism. Let’s wait for news until victory. We don’t split up!

    01.42 OU! AND NOW THERE IS INFORMATION THAT MU SENT THE PAPERS AT 23:59! Remembered the existence of bribes and decided to replay everything?

    01.41 Miguel Layoun has moved from Watford to Porto. You may remember him for his incendiary performances for the Mexican national team at the World Cup. Will now close the gap left by the departure of Alex Sandro.

    01.36 In the confusion, we completely forgot about Yuri Zhirkov . He almost moved to Zenit, but rejected the contract offered to him. Money not arranged or something else? But it doesn’t matter anymore. Yuri remains in Dynamo.

    01.32 No, do you have any idea what it is? Two giants were left with unmotivated and frustrated main goalkeepers. De Gea had already signed a contract and was ready for the presentation, and Navas was kicked out as unnecessary. I wonder who is meaner now? And which club will be more affected by this situation?

    01.27 HAHAHAHAHAHA! I CAN `T BELIEVE MY EYES! DE GEA’S TRANSFER FAILED! Paradox! Just a paradox! They procrastinated all summer, and on you! We agreed on everything, but in Manchester the fax was sent too late. “MJ” can still buy Navas, but now it is unlikely that “Real” will sell him. “Madrid” does not have the right to sign anyone before winter. Yeah. Such huge clubs, but like small children.

    01.25 There is information that Arsenal is interested in buying Cavani . How timely, huh!

    01.23 YOYOYOY! SPANISH MEDIA CLAIMS THAT “REAL” DID NOT HAVE TIME TO MAKE DE JEA’S TRANSFER! Awaiting confirmation.

    01.21 Sadness-sorrow. “Marseille” was left without Lamela . Tottenham blocked the transfer. And there was no time for negotiations. The French were not allowed to shush.

    01.18 News from Rome continues to come. Roma signed Ezequiel Ponce on the flag. Another great talent from Newell’s Old Boys. Attack. It cost 4.2 million. Contract for five years. Doumbia is clearly not going back.

    01.12 And we have a new sensation here! Rojo quarreled with van Gaal and threatens to leave United tomorrow !

    01. 08 Visual graphics of Manchester United transfers. But they lied about Martial.

    01.05 And what about De Gea?

    01.04 Boo! The window was covered everywhere except England .

    00.59

    Yes.

    00.57 Breaking the stereotype about Porto.

    00.55 Tottenham won’t give Lamela to Marseille until they find a replacement. Well, greedy! You have half the team playing in this position there!

    00.53 Ledesma from Lazio played enough in Europe and decided to return to South America. And not just anywhere, but in Santos.

    00.51 Kemen left Newcastle. Where? That’s right – in Marseille.

    00.49 And according to Canal+, Martial is given for 50, plus 30 as bonuses. And not a word about ZM.

    00.43 Siqueira stays with Atlético . Benfica in flight. And almost snatched it from Juventus. Now we have to wait until winter.

    00.41 Aston Villa want to sign Lescott and Adebayor . But it doesn’t seem to be today.

    00.39 And there are no more deals in Russia and there won’t be any more – the league leadership has gone home. The day was quiet and boring. One word – limit.

    00.37 And the Nerazzurri rented Alex Telles from Galatasaray. Also Brazilian. When are they all done?

    00.35 Inter have confirmed the signing of Felippe Melo. For 3.5 million, as they said. So we’ll find out if the simulators are lying to us or not – is he still in the top 50 players in the world or have they gone crazy in Milan?

    00.31 Nope, not 80. The contract is crafty. United pays 40. And will pay the same if Martial wins the Ballon d’Or. All management will now root for Messi and Cristiano.

    00.27 Kanye West is running for President of the United States, Martial is being bought for 80 million, Rennes are loaning a black God from Chelsea. .. Am I falling asleep in the med school dorm and having a nightmare?

    00.24 Less than an hour before the window closes in Spain. And where is De Gea in the new sweater?

    00.22

    And this is Bruno Soriano . Here is what Nobel Arustamyan said:

    ″… Soriano did not have time to sign all the pages of the image contract with Napoli. The fact is that the president of Napoli, De Laurentiis, makes every player sign an image contract as well. And there are 46 pages …″

    This is about the benefits of excessive meticulousness.

    00.19 А The transfer window for has closed in Russia. Waiting for another sensation after the fact?

    00.17 Louis van Gaal clearly outplayed the fourteenth fifa. Otherwise, I can’t explain it. Is there anyone alive here? Do you think the Frenchman will pay for such a price tag?

    00.10 TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA! CLOSED ONE OF THE MAIN QUESTIONS! MARTIAL TO MU! 80 MILLION! EIGHTY! EIGHTY!

    00.08 No, the news from Italy will never end! Ljaich has officially moved to Inter ! Like they said, lease with option to buy.

    00.06 Nobel says he did it. Although he told us about Klopp today.

    00.04 And yet there is one intrigue from Serie A: did Soriano manage to sign a contract?

    00.02 Oh, and summer is over!

    00.00 It’s midnight. A fabulous time of realizing that there is definitely nothing to expect from Italy. And who will now slow down the transfer market? Marseille alone?

    23.58 Wow! Witsel remains ! I don’t know whether to rejoice in this or not, but this is what Galliani said:

    ″. .. We tried to transfer Witzel, but we did not succeed. We knew from the start that this was how it would end. …″

    Why did you get involved then?

    23.56 It turned out that Bibras Natkho was against his brother’s transfer to CSKA. Like, you have to stay in Barcelona. It seems that someone will become less likely to get into the squad.

    23.52 Huh! “Marseilles”! What are you doing, stop it! The French signed Isla and De Ceglie from Juve. The first was rented and the second was bought. It looks like someone will seriously compete with PSG.

    23.45 Guys, I saw God! See you too!

    And the casting director for “Bruce Almighty” definitely knew something.

    23.42 Celtic are being taken apart piece by piece. Forward Stefan Schepovich will now delight many Getafe fans with his goals.

    23.38

    Whoa-whoa-whoa! Quiet! The guys from Dynamo dispersed in earnest. In my opinion, this is an application for the championship. It is possible to sell Kokorin at such a pace, otherwise he will fall into the reserve.

    23.33 Hernanes is at Juve, Hernanes is happy. Will the Bianconeri be just as happy at the end of the season?

    23.30 Southampton remembered they needed centre-backs and renewed interest in Van Dijk . Not to an artist, but to a Celtic player who has openly stated that he intends to leave the club. The Saints are confident that 11.5 million will be enough to convince the Scots.

    23.26 Almost half an hour has passed since the transfer window in Italy closed, and there is no information on Witsel. Looks like it remains to fight for the Champions League.

    23.24 Dynamo had a bad day and summer in general. They did not buy Ryazantsev, they did not sell Kokorin, they lost half the staff. But for some reason they left Stanislav Stanislavovich Cherchesov. And they declared him to the Premier League under the norm number 43. All right, tremble, Gabulov!

    23.21 RMC, who sent Martial to Manchester United today for 50 million, claims that Marseille agreed to lease Lamela . It seems to be worth believing.

    23.19 Jesúsa Corona was courted by PSV for a long time, but could not win. But Porto could. He always can. And soon, for sure, it will sell dearly. Still – such a name for a person. Jokes aside, the winger is great and who the hell knows why the big clubs haven’t noticed him yet. And the Portuguese did not spare 12 million, for example.

    23.17 Victor Ibarbo , who failed at Roma, the rumors are sent to Watford. How cruel and strange European football has become. One successful season – and 50 million are paid for you, unsuccessful several months – and outsiders are interested in you.

    23.14 While we’re quiet, I’ve done a transfer of damn good coffee from the kitchen straight to my stomach. The calm, as you know, is always before the storm, so you can’t sleep. And don’t you dare!

    23.04 Yuny Dmitry Belonog moved from Shakhtar to Ural. There he risks becoming a Mudfoot, because there is something to get dirty in. If you understand what I mean…

    23.02 There is some interesting news from London though. No, not from Arsenal. It’s just that Tottenham decided to raise the offer by Beraino up to 25 million. There, unlike some, they understand that attackers are needed.

    23.00 Bang! This window closed in hyperactive Italy . However, it is possible that news from it will still come. More somehow and nowhere.

    22.56 Everything! Rolling up! In “Dynamo” killed the main intrigue of the day. Kokorin remains . The irony is that this would be Arsenal’s only transfer on today’s hot day. The Londoners planned to take Alexander on loan with an option to buy. But shish you, Mr. Wenger! Sasha is too good for your nuclear submarine.

    22.53 At the beginning of the month, there was a lot of talk about the transfer of Mayuki to Spartak, but Dmitry Alenichev did not need him. Like Southampton. However, Emmanuel has found a home in France – now he is a Metz player. “Only not everyone can afford it. But Petersburgers… They could very well. Would you like to see how Jurgen teaches Dziuba and Yusupov sharp counterattacks with touchdown passes?

    22.45 Bologna have loaned Giaccherini from Sunderland. If you still remember about its existence, then you are well done.

    22.43

    I join. It seems that everything goes to the fact that for any opponent from the Premier League match with “MS” will turn into masochism.

    22.38 Wow! Lamela seems to be in Marseille! At least everyone is actively trumpeting it. Oh, how early Bielsa left!

    22.36 Proof Grosskreuz from Turkey. And there he is not on vacation at all. Hmm, but usually, on the contrary, the Turks go to Germany to work.

    22.33 Italy does not let us go. Roberto Soriano moved to Napoli for 13.5 million euros. Also included in the deal was a one-year lease for Zunigi . In the Apennines, they decided to try for the whole of Europe in the last hours?

    22.30 “Carpi” did a good job on the last day. Another eminent Italian joined Zaccardo – Marco Boriello . “Biancorossi” in the “series” seriously and for a long time?

    22.27 The transfer evening was flooded with rentals. And what about without their main lover? Alessandro Matri went to Lazio. He hasn’t been there yet. And I keep thinking, how can I go around all of Italy? It was necessary to become textured and not very technical striker.

    22.24 Do you remember the steamy defender Doria ? Even Russian clubs were interested in him, but in the end he turned out to be Marseille. Where did not take root. And left now “Granada”. Rent with the right to further purchase for 7 million. And let him allocate at least a few thousand for a club photographer’s camera.

    22.20 We completely forgot about Sevilla! And she took and borrowed defender Andreolli from Inter. Only for a year so far, and then we’ll see. A noble company in Andalusia is going, I must say.

    22.17 Details about Klopp’s move to St. Petersburg are being clarified . They say that the “Zenith” deal will cost 15 million. Well, at least there is no limit on coaches.

    22.15 But the Turks are not appeased. Galatasaray on loan from Manchester City0184 Jason Denyer . His name has been buzzing around lately. For those who don’t know, it looks like this.

    22.08 Ageless Cristian Zaccardo moved from AC Milan to Carpi. Well, now Serie A newcomers can afford world champions.

    22.03 A dream come true – Joaquín is back at Betis. Oh, nostalgia! Back in FIFA 2005, he made me pretty nervous in matches with, as it seemed, an unknown team.

    22.01 Fener seems to have serious plans for the season. They also almost bought the future star of the Uruguay national team. We are talking about Diego Roland . Only the ban of Willy Sagnol – the coach of “Bordeaux” – calmed down the angry Turks.

    21.57 The deal for Idea is formalized. Now he is an Olympiacos player. Perhaps congratulations. Will still play in the Champions League.

    21.52 It’s time to return to the Russian land. And here everything moves in a spiral, driving us into Nietzschean moods. Pavel Yakovlev again goes on a one-year loan to Wings…

    21. 47 Lucas Piazon continues to roll around on loan. This time – “Reading”. I wonder if the talented midfielder will ever show up at Chelsea?

    21.45 Meanwhile, Bournemouth continues to strengthen. Managed to fish out Glen Murray who fell out of favor at Palace. The transaction amount is 5 million. One-fifth De Gea.

    21.42 Louis, it’s time to spend. Or will the transfer of Martial now sharply drive the club into a loss?

    21.37 Schoolchildren who have not yet fallen asleep, it’s time to practice. Simple arithmetic. The total deal for De Gea , according to James Ducker of The Times, is 40 million. Keylor Navas has agreed to be part of this outrage. It was valued at 15 million. Help Dasha find out how much the most coveted goalkeeper of the passing summer is worth.

    21.33 Braun Ideye , who escaped from Dynamo Kyiv, did not really succeed in the Premier League. And now Rondon has arrived. Therefore, he is forced to bow to Greece – to Olympiacos. So far, only at the level of conversations and dreams. But, Sky Sports assures that everything is serious.

    21.31 Here MEDIASET announces that Zenit and AC Milan have agreed a deal for Witsel . We’ve heard something like this before, haven’t we? A hundred times in a summer. Do we believe in this one?

    21.26 There is almost no news from the Netherlands today. And here they are! And very interesting ones too. PSV set out to return Leroy Fehr to his homeland. Do not vegetate as he is in the CPR, in fact. There are still a couple of hours to close the deal. And the Eindhovenians should hurry up, because, judging by the start of the championship, they clearly need a quality defensive midfielder.

    21.21 It’s done! What we’ve been waiting for all day! Corporate insider from Nobel! Did someone send him money on the phone at last?

    21. 18 Lindegard officially moved to West Brom. The agreement was signed for two years. And the Dane is already confessing with might and main how he fell in love with the game of “thrushes” from his first days in England. We willingly believe. Himself from childhood for the WBA.

    21.15 Looks like Totti and Garcia’s cold war has begun. Quite suddenly, the Romans set out to sell Lajicha . The talented Serb claims “Inter”. We’re talking about a two-million lease followed by a nine-million buyout option.

    21.05 Sensation! “Rennes” acquired God! It is clear that money can do anything now, but so far we are talking only about the youngster from Chelsea – Jeremy God . The French took a talented boy on loan for one year.

    While all the students are going to bed getting ready for the big day, we continue to close the transfer window online. I take over the night shift – Nikolai Samofalov. Well, the clock is ticking, and time is now inversely proportional to the nervousness of breeders and footballers. There are only a few hours left to pull off a couple of swanky deals and polish some of the ones mentioned below. Everyone except the English. We’ll talk about them tomorrow.

    20.57 In Italy, the window closes late at night, but there, too, the main transfers are coming to an end – in austerity mode. For example, Fiorentina will rent Blaszczykowski for one season for one million euros, with the possibility of subsequent redemption only next summer for 6 million euros.

    20.51 It seems that the main summer saga is coming to an end. De Gea flies to Madrid, in the opposite direction to Manchester – Keylor Navas and 35 million euros. We are waiting for the official announcement.

    20.47 Juventus cheerfully hold the defense against Napoli, who offered 20 million euros for Daniele Rugani . But Turintsy need such a defender.

    20.40 But this is just an atomic bomb from the Italian press! Sky Italy and Gianluca Di Marzio report that Zenit have agreed with Jurgen Klopp !

    20. 35 Robbie Kruse also couldn’t stand the competition and left Bayer for a simpler club. More specifically, at “Stuttgart”, for one year lease.

    20.23 Continuing the Football Manager theme. Rennes loaned Colombian Juan Fernando Quintero from Porto. 1 million plus 19 million at the end of the season if the French decide to keep the player for a longer period.

    20.06 Wait! Bayer announced the purchase of Mexican striker Chicharito Hernandez . The transaction amount is approximately 12 million euros.

    20.03 Porto’s Spanish striker Adrian Lopez returns to his homeland. The striker will spend next season at Villarreal.

    19.59 Khodzhaniyazov from Zenit goes to Danish Aarhus , but in case of a good game he still has a chance to come back within the next two years.

    19.56 We return to the Russian transfer market, and there Amkar signed the 22-year-old Norwegian forward Chuma Anene , who until recently played for Rabotnichki. Let’s see how exactly Gadzhi Gadzhiev adapts it to his schemes.

    19.43 Rolando still managed to endure until the end of the contract at Porto and calmly moved to Marseille as a free agent.

    19.40 Urgent! Liverpool bought a striker! Meet Taiwo Awoniyi , he is 18 years old, he is from Nigeria and he will play next season at “Frankfurt” on loan. Powerful.

    19.35 AC Milan is offering a lease agreement for Witzel for 3 million. And a mandatory buyout for 22 million if the player plays 20 matches for his new club. Slightly it seems that the Italians do not quite understand who they are dealing with.

    19.30 The Orlando Pirates signed 23-year-old Ghanaian guard James Akas ! He is 23 years old. 23. Yes, 23, stop rubbing your eyes. Or 63, and he is generally a coach. We’ll let you know the details later.

    19.18 Genoa confirmed the transfer of Christian Ansaldi from Zenit. Rent with option to buy. The power of the limit in action.

    19.14 Meanwhile, the “soldiers” officially announced the arrival of Amir Natkho . The agreement was signed under the 1+3 scheme. I wonder how it is?

    19.09 So Aaron Hunt has officially moved to Hamburg. Of all the top German transfers, the only thing left to wait for is Chicharito’s announcement at Bayer Leverkusen.

    19.00 Germany has completed its transfer frenzy! We are still waiting for the announcement of the transfer of some players, but by this time all contracts must be signed.

    18.53 Schalke’s twitter announces that Draxler has officially moved to Wolfsburg ! The club’s website does not specify a specific amount, but “this is the most profitable transfer in the history of the club. ” But the player signed a contract for five years. I wonder how the fans of the London “Arsenal” feel now?

    18.50 Only ten minutes left in Germany! The website of Borussia Dortmund confirms the new player’s one-year loan, and Januzaj has already fully revealed all the cards.

    18.44 But CSKA never says goodbye to their talents – Dmitry Efremov flies to the Czech Republic for practice in Liberec “Slovan”. Not a bad choice, a loan to this club once helped Dynamo Kyiv turn Serhiy Rybalka into a key player in the team.

    18.35 Fenerbahce at the finish line in a deal for Gabriel Barbosa of Santos’ . One of the main talents in Football Manager 15 has already managed to say goodbye to the fans of the Brazilian team in all social networks.

    18.30 “Zenith” was so impressed with the game “Krylya Sovetov” that sends Milan Rodich to Samara to help. This is a complete transfer.

    18.26 Brazilian defender Felipe joined Udinese as a free agent. According to the official website of the Friulian club, the 31-year-old defender has signed a two-year contract. The player has already played in Udine from 2003 to 2010 and this can be said to be a return to his native land.

    18.20 This was already known yesterday, but the deal was made only a few minutes ago. Dante goes to Wolfsburg for 5 million euros! Recall that for the same amount he left the Mönchengladbach Borussia for the sake of Bayern three years ago.

    18.10 Meanwhile, Everton fans are trolling Jose Mourinho by singing the legendary Beatles song “Can’t buy me love” in a new way. “Money won’t buy you the Stones!”

    18.00 Only one hour left before the transfer window closes in Germany! We are waiting for the finalization of key deals – Draxler to Wolfsburg, Januzaj to Borussia Dortmund and Chicharito to Bayer.

    17.52 Fabio Borini is officially back at Sunderland! The striker has decided not to fight for a place in the first team of Liverpool, and the cats will pay about ten million pounds for him. That is, they will completely beat off the purchase price of the player by Liverpool from Roma.

    17.45 Alessandro Nesta is the new head coach of FC Miami. How quickly time flies… We read this news, remember it, and are not surprised if in a couple of years the legendary defender in the past will lead Milan. There, such twists of fate are simply adored.

    17.40 A little bit about pressing matters from Lithuania. Forward of the Lithuanian “Atlantas” Andrey Panyukov , who scored twenty goals in twenty championship games, goes to “Ajaccio”. True, so far only on loan.

    17.30 Did you miss the news about De Gea ? And here they are! Marca announces agreement in principle between Madrid and Manchester United on the amount of the deal! 30-35 million euros will cost one of the best goalkeepers in modern football. In parallel, there are talks about the purchase by the British of Keylor Navas , who previously refused to participate in the De Gea deal. But as a separate transfer – why not?

    17.26 Meanwhile, RAC1 informs that Amir Natkho is still moving from Barcelona-B to CSKA . Most likely, Muscovites will not pay a cent to the old club in this deal. But the player was offered a 4-year contract.

    17.20 And yet Schalke surrendered! Julian Draxler has already arrived in Wolfsburg, where he is shown to his new home. But about 40 million euros are sent to Gelsenkirchen, which the club will be able to spend in the next transfer window. Draxler’s agent has confirmed the transfer and a five-year contract will be signed.

    17.12 Borussia Dortmund does not spare the feelings of its fans either. Following Grosskreutz, another legend leaves the team – Cuba Blaszczykowski said goodbye to the city on his Facebook. He leaves Dortmund for Fiorentina .

    17.09 Russian clubs, despite the later closing of the transfer window, are trying to solve their problems now. For example, Moscow “Spartak” unexpectedly popped up with an offer for “Tottenham” for Adebayora . Bomb? And then! 5 million euros are at stake.

    17.06 Can we already congratulate the fans of Dynamo Kyiv? It is unlikely that Yarmolenko will go anywhere, moreover, the club’s management still managed to shove Mbokani Norwich needed a powerful striker and the Canaries are willing to shell out six million euros for him. The Congolese had already flown to England in a private plane, things had already been collected in advance.

    16.53 Against this background, it is rather strange to look at the passivity of English clubs. Is that the saga of Martial and convulsive attempts Chelsea buy at least some player in the defensive line. But not the Stones, but Papi Djilobodji , who will come from Nantes for 2.7 million euros. The player’s medical examination is already underway, while we are still trying to calculate how much Abramovich saved on this transfer.

    4.50 pm Come on? According to “Soviet Sport”, “Rubin” wants to return Berdyev . And with him to return and those players, “Rostov”, who used to play for Kazan?

    16.45 Leverkusen Bayer is going to compete with Dortmund. Kicker is talking about 11 million euros for Chicharito – no loan, just a buyout of a player who played for Madrid all last season. However, Bayer will not overflow, because Robbie Kruse is going to shelter Zonninger and the entire Stuttgart in his team.

    16.40 In Germany, all the main news comes from Dortmund. Bild confidently reports that Adnan Januzaj will be Borussia ‘s on loan next year. Judging by the mood of the leaders of Dortmund, this lease is with the right to purchase. At the same time, Kevin Grosskreutz leaves his hometown to join Galatasaray’s powerful roster . And for starters, Oliver Kirch will be the last purchase of Paderborn .

    16.35 News from the Russian transfer market. Vyacheslav Krotov became a player “Ufa” for 500 thousand euros. Spartak will have a chance to exercise the right to buy the player back for 1 million euros, but this clause of the contract will only be valid during the next two transfer windows.

    16.30 Hernanes moves to Juventus ! Apparently, the Turin club is too frightened by the performance of their midfield in the first two matches of Serie A. The price for such a player is not the highest – 11 million euros. 1/5 Martial. Moreover, there are persistent rumors that the key Lazio player is Lucas Biglia Turin offered 25 million euros and Sturaro to boot! There is something to think about.

    16.25 Ryazantsev still does not transfer to Dynamo. “The information that appeared in the media about the transfer of Alexander Ryazantsev is not true. There will be no player in the club,” the Muscovites’ press service said. Well, let’s see how true these words will be at the end of the transfer window.

    16.15 Meantime Schalke reinforces the center of the field – Pierre-Emil Høibjerg , who has already managed to grab number 23, is sent from Bayern to Gelsenkirchen on a one-year loan. The guy was out of luck with a competitor in the form of Vidal, but playing for one of the top clubs in Germany should give him confidence.

    16.10 Boom! Look who’s coming back to Italy! Gianluca Di Marzio announces an agreement between Galatasaray and Inter for the Italians to buy Felipe Melo – 3.5 million euros are at stake, plus tasty bonuses for the Turkish side.

    So, the evening period of transfer madness begins. Can German clubs complete their deals in four hours? How much exactly will be paid for Martial? Vladimir Harets will follow these and other pressing issues with you!

    16. 03 Some interesting statistics about one of the most influential people in the history of football: the amount of transfers carried out with direct participation Jorge Mendes has already exceeded 1.6 billion euros!

    15.45 Rubin striker Marco Livaia returned to Serie A: until the end of the season, the 22-year-old Croatian loaned to Empoli . In the Kazan club, Livaya failed to prove himself on the positive side, but was exiled to the double because of a conflict with Bilyaletdinov.

    15.35 Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard will join West Brom . The Blackbirds have already spent more than €40m this summer signing defenders Evans and Chester and strikers Lambert and Rondon. The ex-forward of “Zenith” became the most expensive acquisition of the club – 17 million euros.

    15.30 The amount that Manchester United will pay for Martial has been revealed – 50 million euros, excluding bonuses.

    15.10 West Ham continue to buzz in the transfer market: following the signings of Payet, Ogbonna and Obiang, the London club intend to loan Barcelona midfielder Alex Song and Chelsea winger Victor Moses .

    14.56 AC Milan Youngster Hashim Mastour flew to Malaga to sign a contract with the club of the same name. The 17-year-old midfielder will play a season in the Andalusian team on loan, after which he can be bought for 5 million euros. Mastur played for the youth teams of Italy, but then patriotic feelings surged in him, and he made a choice in favor of Morocco.

    14.50 Another piece of news from Russia: striker Aleksey Sapogov (free agent) is training with Amkar . By the way, today the ban on registration of new players was lifted from the Permian club. There is still time to close the deal. If someone has forgotten who Sapogov is, then here:

    Click here for a transcript of the Megatsunami Scenario – La Palma Landslide video.

    Man narrating: A slide from this mountain could kill millions of people in Europe and along America’s eastern seaboard. Some eminent scientists warn that it’s purely a matter of time till it happens. This is the volcanic island of La Palma 700 miles off the northwest coast of Africa. It’s a newborn baby island, barely past its 4 millionth birthday, created in the last stage of what geologists call the rock cycle. Volcanoes can form land in various ways. In Hawaii lava gently pours from vents in the ground to build up almost horizontal layers of new rock. But elsewhere, as here on La Palma, more violent eruptions build steep-sided cones with surrounding layers of thick ash.

    Eruptions in the past 60 years have jolted this island to the core, creating a fault line – a crack you can walk through – along the island central spine 6,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. On the western side of the fault, the land fell 13 feet down then stopped. Geologists Bill McGuire and other scientists say gas pressures could build up in a future eruption and crack open the island along this fault line. They have traced the fault for at least nine miles along the island ridge. And they believe the fault is so long that when it cracks open five hundred billion tons of rock will slide thousands of feet down into the ocean.

    Prof. Bill McGuire, University College London: So it’s going to go during a future eruption, there’s no doubt about that. The problem is eruptions occur sometimes every 20 years, sometimes every 200 years.

    Narrator: McGuire paints a terrifying fantasy picture of what anyone standing on the top of the landslide would see and hear.

    Prof. Bill McGuire: I don’t know if anybody’s heard the noise made by this amount of rocks sliding against another great chunk of rock, but I always imagined it as if there are a million fingers scraping down a blackboard.

    Narrator: The slide will reach a speed of more than 220 miles per hour

    Prof. Bill McGuire: So you’d be hurtling down the slope of the volcano. It would start to break up into smaller pieces as it entered the ocean but by then it would already have displaced something like half a mile of water, which would be towering above your head. And that would be probably the last thing you’d ever see. Spectacular way to die.

    Narrator: McGuire believes the impact with the ocean will create a dome of water nearly 3,000 feet high.

    Prof. Bill McGuire: This is a massive rock which is probably bigger than Manhattan Island and when it collapses it would generate oceanwide tsunami, which will be at least as devastating as those that struck the Indian Ocean.

    Narrator: The vast amount of energy pumped into the ocean will create what one scientist has called a megatsunami. Tsunami waves racing out in all directions. Computer predictions suggests they could even travel 4,000 miles toward the eastern seaboard of the United States, losing some but not all of their power along the way.

    Prof. Bill McGuire: That wave will travel all the way across the Atlantic Ocean to the east coast of North America, but the water itself won’t move all the way across, the individual particles in the world would transmit the energy to one another. We can demonstrate that quite nicely on a pool table here, where the energy from this first ball I’m going to hit is transmitted through all the others to the last one.

    Narrator: Just as energy moves from ball to ball, so the landslide energy transfers from water particle to water particle across the ocean. As the landslide’s energy approaches the coast, it builds up into a massive wall of water. These deep reds and blues are computer predictions of waves 100 feet high and more.

    Prof. Bill McGuire: The level of destruction is difficult to quantify, it is going to be enormous there’s no doubt about that. If people are still in the cities when the collapse occurs, you may be considering millions of casualties.

    The hypothesis that Canary Island collapse generates megatsunami is not universally accepted. This skepticism arises from the fact that island collapse may not have been catastrophic, instead, occurring slowly in numerous discrete small events rather than a single giant collapse. Such a slow collapse would not generate a large tsunami. So what about the large Bahamian blocks? An alternative possibility is they were delivered there by a hurricane during a time 125,000 years ago when sea level was higher than it is today.

    In summary, it does not appear that a devastating megatsunami generated in the Canary islands is imminent. There is potential for collapse of the volcanic flanks on the islands but these events will likely be less dramatic than once feared and with waves only devastating on a local scale.

    Abstract

    The Canary Island Seamount Province forms a scattered hotspot track on the Atlantic ocean floor ~1300 km long and ~350 km wide, perpendicular to lithospheric fractures and parallel to the NW African continental margin. New 40Ar/39Ar datings show that seamount ages vary from 133 Ma to 0.2 Ma in the central archipelago and from 142 Ma to 91 Ma in the southwest. Combining 40Ar/39Ar ages with plate tectonic reconstructions, I find that the temporal and spatial distribution of seamounts is irreconcilable with a deep fixed mantle plume origin, or derivation from passive mantle upwelling beneath a mid-ocean ridge. I conclude that shallow mantle upwelling beneath the Atlantic Ocean basin off the NW African continental lithosphere flanks produced recurrent melting anomalies and seamounts from the Late Jurassic to Recent, nominating the Canary Island Seamount Province as oldest hotspot track in the Atlantic Ocean and most long-lived preserved on earth.

    Introduction

    The Canary Island Seamount Province (CISP) comprises more than 100 seamounts, isolated volcanic structures on the seafloor ranging from small (<1000 m height) to mid-sized (>1000 m) and mid-sized explosive (<700 m water depth) to ocean islands1. It represents the easiest hotspot track to find in the northern part of the African plate2, but its location is difficult to explain and its origin is controversial3,4,5,6. Primitive CISP basalts are derived from decompression melting of upwelling mantle that includes deep (HIMU-type), depleted (DMM-type) and enriched (EM-type) mantle components7,8,9 and erupt after limited interaction with altered MORB crust and Cenozoic sediments10. Plausible models for the formation of scattered seamount chains like the CISP include (a) deep mantle upwelling through fixed mantle plumes5, (b) shallow passive mantle upwelling beneath mid-ocean ridges11 and (c) shallow mantle convection from continental lithosphere flanks3.

    Original fixed-plume models5 were based on the E-W alignment and apparent age progression of the Canary Islands from Lanzarote-Fuerteventura (15–23 Ma12) to El Hierro (<1.1 Ma13) (Fig. 1) and the assumptions that Canarian island-seamounts grow fast and that their subaerial ages were representative of the onset of magma generation and mantle upwelling at any given site. Later studies included northeastern seamounts and inferred a wider NE-SW-oriented fixed-plume track4 beginning near Essaouira Seamount (68 Ma) and ending around El Hierro and La Palma (<4 Ma14). Because the continental margin, palaeomagnetic anomalies and MORs and plate motion vector run roughly parallel, a NE-SW oriented seamount chain appears compatible with either model, but the age distribution and geotectonic setting are critical. Here we look at the ages of CISP seamounts from the central archipelago to the SW, analyzing rock samples that were dredged during RV Meteor cruise M4315. For the first time, seamount age data across the entire CISP are available for consideration and based on the spatial and temporal distribution, mantle convection models of origin can be evaluated. 40Ar/39Ar analyses were carried out by single-crystal laser fusion and laser step-heating using irradiation monitor TCR (27.87 Ma16). I start with a summary of results, from northeast to southwest (2Sigma errors).

    This seamount is part of the ridge connecting the seamount socles of Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura (Fig. 1) and yields a hornblende mean age of 17.8 ± 0.3 Ma and a matrix step-heating plateau age of 17.7 ± 0.2 Ma (Fig. 2). Note, this is ~3 m.y. older than the oldest subaerial “shield-stage” lavas of overlying Gran Canaria (~15 Ma17).

    El hijo

    A 600 m high young seamount15 lies in the channel between Gran Canaria and Tenerife. Biotite phenocrysts of its trachyandesite lava samples 755-1 and 759-3 yield a weighted mean age of 0.24 ± 0.02 Ma (Fig. 2).

    Palma ridge

    This seamount is in the southern submarine flanks of La Palma. Biotites from phonolite lava 666-2 yield a mean age of 2.11 ± 0.03 Ma, younger than the uplifted seamount series of northern La Palma (≤4 Ma14) but older than the subaerial volcanics of the island (<1.7 Ma18). There is a Pliocene evolved seamount in the submarine structure of southern La Palma.

    Hierro ridge

    In the flanks of El Hierro, a seamount ridge extends ~30 km south. Its trachyte breccia sample 678-2 yields a mean K-feldspar age of 133. 3 ± 0.2 Ma, reproduced by a mean hornblende age of 133.8 ± 0.6 Ma. The submarine structure of El Hierro includes an Early Cretaceous seamount, overlain by later El Hierro volcanics at its northern flank.

    Bisabuelas

    A small group of seamounts located 70 Km southwest of El Hierro was named “Las Hijas” (The Daughters) and suspected to represent juvenile future Canary Islands19. Eight plagioclase single-crystal analyses of its trachyte sample 689-2 yield a mean age of 140.5 ± 0.7 Ma. Nine plagioclase crystals from trachyte sample 689-5 yield a mean age of 141.7 ± 0.4 Ma. This is probably the oldest seamount in the Atlantic Ocean. Whether its origin is Early Cretaceous or Late Jurassic depends on the age of the submerged seamount structure, which is likely a few million years older than 142 Ma and uncertainties of the Jurassic-Cretaceous chronostratigraphic boundary (e.g. 142 ± 2 Ma20). Bisabuelas (Great-grandmothers) is suggested as an alternative provisional name for this seamount group.

    The paps

    This seamount group is located ~300 km southwest of El Hierro. K-feldspar microphenocrysts from trachyphonolitic pumice breccia 706-1 yield a step-heating age spectrum with disturbances in the low- and high-temperature regions, indicating partial alteration (Fig. 2). The plateau in-between comprises >52% of the 39Ar released and yields a plateau age of 91.1 ± 0.2 Ma.

    Tropic

    Tropic seamount is at the southwestern edge of the CISP. Thirteen K-feldspar phenocrysts from basal sample 699-1 yield a mean age of 119.3 ± 0.3 Ma. Seven plagioclase crystals from topmost trachyte sample 693-2 yield a mean age of 115.6 ± 0.5 Ma. Twentythree anorthoclase phenocrysts from trachyte sample 692-3 yield a mean age of 116.3 ± 0.2 Ma, reproduced by 10 hornblende analyses (116.6 ± 0.5 Ma) and matrix step-heating yields a plateau age of 113.9 ± 0.2 Ma for basalt sample 692-1. All samples are from the southwestern slopes and all ages are significantly higher than plagioclase K-Ar ages from the northern slope (84 to 59 Ma21). Tropic Seamount erupted from 119 Ma to 114 Ma with possible late stage eruptions until ~60 Ma.

    Discussion

    Depending on the rate, duration and frequency of magma supply from melting anomalies and the age and depth of origin, Canary seamounts grow from the Late Jurassic to Recent ocean floor towards or beyond sea level. The bulk thickness of sediments covering the basaltic oceanic crust basement (~155 Ma old around palaeo–magnetic anomaly M2522) is known from reflection seismics as at least 2,500–3,000 m, e.g. NE of Tenerife and SE of El Hierro23. At ages up to 142 Ma, Canarian seamounts are partly burried in this sedimentary sequence. Consequently, many seamounts are much larger than meets the eye or remote sensors and subaerial, submarine and subsedimentary sections need to be considered to constrain seamount dimensions and to understand structural relationships. Two examples (Fig. 3):

To keep it simple, seamount subsidence due to lithosphere loading, magmatic plumbing systems and interlocking of seamount clastic aprons and sediment sequence are not considered in this sketch. Subaerial and submarine seamount heights are precise, subsedimentary seamount heights are minimum estimates, especially for Tenerife. See text for discussion.

    Bisabuleas seamount rises to 2850 m.b.s.l. above the seafloor, which levels at ~3850 m.b.s.l. in the vicinity. Considering that ~3,000 m of sediment were deposited on the sea floor and seamount flanks from 142 Ma to recent, Bisabuelas seamount must be at least 4,000 m tall and only a quarter is peeking out of the sediment.

    El Hierro, the second example, rises to 1,500 m.a.s.l. from ~3,900 m. b.s.l. In addition, Hierro Ridge seamount reaches from 1500 m.b.s.l. down to at least 6,000 m.b.s.l., estimating ~2,500 m of sediment since the Early Cretaceous. Accepting Hierro Ridge as integral part of El Hierro’s seamount sub-structure, 2,500 m subsedimentary height add to the submarine-subaerial height of 5,400 m, transforming the youngest and smallest Canary Island into one of the oldest (>133 Ma) and tallest (>7,900 m) Canary Island seamounts.

    The new 40Ar/39Ar dates provide evidence for both a much prolongued history of the CISP and of individual seamounts and for a composite structure and multi-stage origin of subaerially young and supposedly fast-grown13 islands. The riddle of Miocene to Pleistocene islands in the center of an essentially Cretaceous seamount field (Fig. 1) may have a simple answer: Only the subaerial island tips of these giant seamounts are young, their seamount roots can be Early Cretaceous or older. As yet, only a few seamount sub-structures were revealed, however, by falling sea levels (Selvagen: >29 Ma8), by tectonic uplift (Fuerteventura: >70 Ma24,25,26) or by dredging (El Hierro: >133 Ma). The proof of widespread Late Jurassic to Mid Cretaceous seamount volcanism in the CISP has significant consequences for seismic and sedimentary facies models27 and mantle convection models, which were based on an initiation of CISP volcanism and supply of volcanic sediments to basins in the Late Cretaceous to Early Paleogene.

    An age progression from the SW to the NE is conditio sine qua non for a fixed-plume origin of the CISP, given that the African plate moves to the NE1,4,28. The new 40Ar/39Ar ages show that seamounts do not grow systematically older from the southwest (Tropic, 119 Ma) to the northeast (Essaouira, 68 Ma) (Fig. 1). Canarian seamounts are “old” in the southwestern, “old and young” in the central and “intermediate” in the northeastern province (Fig. 4). Even if the African plate had moved in reverse, this would not constitute an appropriate age progression. The temporal and spatial distribution of Canary seamounts is irreconcilable with single fixed-plume models.

    Figure 4

Seamount distribution should be aligned parallel to this vector (youngest in the SW, oldest in the NE) if derived from a fixed plume. Naive linear regression attempts yield poor solutions for the seamount data set (dashed line, R2 = 0.20) and data set including subaerial island data (solid line, R2 = 0.13), indicating a scattered age distribution and lack of a significant and systematic age progression.

    Shallow recycling of continental lithosphere into passively upwelling mantle beneath mid-ocean ridges can explain the origin of diffuse seamount chains in young ocean basins when seamount formation closely follows an MOR11. Plate tectonic reconstructions show, however, that the Atlantic MOR veers away orthogonally from the CISP. When Bisabuelas erupted, the MOR was already ~200 km away and the seamount erupted on an ocean floor >10 m.y. older than the seamount (palaeomagnetic anomaly M25) (Fig. 5). Still during the Early Cretaceous, at least three more large seamounts erupted to the east and west (Hierro Ridge 133 Ma, Henry 126 Ma29, Tropic 119 Ma). By the K-Pg boundary the latest, the CISP had reached its present dimensions with eruptions from The Paps (91 Ma), Fuerteventura (>70 Ma) and Essaouira (68 Ma), but the MOR had veered another 1,200 km to the NW (Fig. 5). An origin of the entire CISP from passive mantle upwelling beneath the mid-Atlantic ridge is also not reasonable.

    Figure 5

    Mantle upwelling and CISP follow the NW African continental margin.

    (a–e), Plate tectonic reconstructions and setting of CISP seamounts at 142 Ma (a), 100 Ma (b), 66 Ma (c, K-Pg boundary), 34 Ma (d) and Present (e). Maps created by the author with ODSN Advanced Plate Tectonic Reconstructions (http://www.odsn.de) The reconstructions show that the CISP started to form near palaeomagnetic anomaly M25 no later that 142 m.y. ago, when the North American and African continents were only 900 km apart (a). With the African Plate (continent plus new ocean crust) drifting primarily eastward, the MOR veering away to the NW and the North Central Atlantic opening up, more seamounts erupted at equal distance from the rifted NW African continental margin, scattered along palaeomagnetic anomaly M25 (b–c). At the latest from the K-Pg boundary (c) the outlines of the CISP have not changed significantly. Later seamounts fill up the space between Tropic and Essaouira (d). Figure (e) shows the present spatial distribution of all large seamounts in the CISP, including islands and unnamed and undated ones (see Fig. 1 for details). Future studies will show how many of these are actually much older and should really be plotted in (a–d). The coordinates of Bisabuelas Seamount, as projected from (a–d) onto (e), illustrate the path taken by the African plate (central CISP range) from 142 Ma to Present. This is what a hotspot track should look like, if a deep fixed-plume mantle upwelling had ever existed beneath the central CISP at 142 Ma or later. Instead, mantle upwelling and CISP follow the African plate on its 3000 km journey to the E-NE, indicating that mantle convection is causally related and physically connected to the moving plate, its continental lithospheric roots respectively.

    Of the three competing mantle convection models1,3,11, only shallow mantle convection at the rifted continental lithosphere flanks can explain the alignment, age distribution, plate tectonic setting and long history of individual centers of the CISP and agrees with the observed mix7,8,9,10 of geochemical mantle components. Breakup of the Pangaean continent exposed >250 km thick cratonic lithosphere to hot asthenospheric mantle and caused mantle upwelling (edge-driven convection)3 beneath the juvenile ocean crust (MORB) and recycling of subcontinental lithosphere (EM-type mantle). Seamount formation started less than 40 m.y. after the earliest rifting in the North Central Atlantic (~184 Ma25), when ocean crust formation was barely advanced (i.e. the process producing depleted DMM-type mantle) and HIMU-type mantle components were ambiant to dominant in the asthenosphere beneath the young Atlantic ocean basin and lithosphere.

    While the origin of the entire CISP from shallow plate-bound mantle convection off the rifted NW African continental margin is fully compatible with the geochemical composition, spread and age of seamounts and plate tectonic reconstructions, the present data set does not rule out the possibility of more complex scenarios such as alternating mantle plume and plate-related convection analogue to the Samoan hotspot system30, or multiple, successive, mantle plumes similar to “hot spot highways” in the Pacific31. Even hybrid models combining early passive mantle upwelling near the MOR in the Late Jurassic with shallow edge-driven convection throughout the Cretaceous and the appearance of a single deep-fixed plume in the Early Paleogene are imaginable. Prerequisites, however, to explain the origin of the CISP and the temporal and spatial distribution of its seamounts, these scenarios are not.

    The conditions of formation of CISP-type seamount chains (shallow source, juvenile astenosphere, slow plate, low production rate32, recurrent mantle upwelling and melting anomalies beneath the same plate segment) are fundamentally different from fixed-plume prototypes like the Hawaii-Emperor chain (deep source, mature astenosphere, high production rate, fast plate, rapid decoupling of melting anomalies from upwelling source)33, yet seamount dimensions are comparable. I conclude that plate-bound shallow mantle convection is an important mechanism of seamount formation in young ocean basins bordered by rifted continental margins and is capable of sustaining extremely long-lived hotspot tracks, for at least 142 m.y. in case of the Canary Island Seamount Province.

    Methods

    16 mineral and matrix separates from 12 dredged rock samples from RV Meteor cruise M43 were analyzed by 40Ar/39Ar laser step-heating and single-crystal fusion. Crystals (plagioclase, K-feldspar, hornblende, biotite) and matrix particles were hand-picked from crushed and sieved rock splits (250–500 μm). To remove alteration surfaces and adhering matrix material, feldspar separates were etched in 15% hydrofluoric acid for 5 minutes. All samples were washed and cleaned using an ultrasonic disintegrator. Separates were irradiated in aluminum trays and cans lined by cadmium foil at the 5-MW reactor of the GKSS Research Center (Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht, Germany). The neutron flux was monitored using Taylor Creek Rhyolite Sanidine (27.87 ± 0.04 Ma16). 40Ar/39Ar laser analyses were carried out at the GEOMAR Geochronology Lab using a 20 W SpectraPhysics Argon-Ion laser and an MAP 216 series noble gas mass spectrometer. Ar Isotope ratios from mass spectrometry were corrected for mass discrimination, background and blank values, J-value gradients and interfering neutron reactions on Ca and K.

    The step-heating and single-crystal data are evaluated in age spectra (apparent age and error vs. cumulative 39Ar in order of analysis) trying to detect plateaus (>3 consecutive steps comprising >50% of the 39Ar released, with ages overlapping within 2Sigma errors) and single-crystal populations with ages overlapping within 2Sigma errors. Plateau ages represent the inverse-variance weighted mean of the plateau step ages and errors. Statistical validity of mean ages are tested by calculating the MSWD (mean square weighted deviates) and POF (probability of fit; should be >0.05 at 2Sigma/95% confidence levels)37. Because marine rock samples are generally variably altered, the degree of alteration is monitored via alteration indices based on the measured 36Ar/37Ar ratios (plagioclase, hornblende, matrix) or measured 36Ar/39Ar ratios (K-feldspar, Biotite) following established methods38. Low-temperature heating steps generally yield 10 to 100 times higher alteration indices, but are not included in the plateau age calculations. Few crystals that yield deviating apparent ages and alteration indices are also excluded from the single-crystal mean age calculations. Results are summarized in Supplement Table S2. Full analytical data are given in Supplement Table S3. Isotope correlation diagrams, age spectra, Ca/K ratios and atmospheric 40Ar contents are shown in Supplement Figures S4.

    Administrative information
    The Canary Islands are made ​​up of two provinces: the four western islands that include Tenerife, La Palma, El Hierro and La Gomera, whose capital is Santa Cruz de Tenerife; and the eastern islands, which include Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, and with the capital Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Otherwise, each island has its own internal government called the “cabildo insular.”
    Climate
    The climate of the Canary Islands is broadly Mediterranean type modified with African influences (dry winds) and trade winds.

    Summers are generally very hot, dry and warm, wet winters but with many variations.

    The most appropriate way to present all the islands is described as a succession of microclimates ranging from 0 m to approximately 4000 m altitude. Indeed, the Canary Islands are near the Tropic of Cancer. Although the climate is appropriate to the latitude desert-like, the reality is quite different. They are located in the middle of the Atlantic, swept by the trade winds and exposed to cold ocean currents that bathe their coasts.

    The trade winds blowing from northeast provide a permanent moisture coming from the sea, very important to the islands to the west (Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro). The mountains form a barrier, stopping the clouds and allow the emergence of rainfall between 800 and 1,500, allowing the establishment of evergreen forest.

    The islands east, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, and the south of Gran Canaria, beyond the influence of the trade winds except the upper parts (Jandia in Fuerteventura and Famara in Lanzarote). The harmatan, dry wind from the Sahara is the cause of these islands a great dry climate.

    Average temperatures: winter 11 °C / 16 °C – was 20 °C / 25 °C. The annual average temperature is 20 °C (with minor oscillations) except in the mountains, where it is lower. In summer, temperatures rarely exceed 30 °C.

    The coldest month is February with an average temperature of 18 °C and the hottest months, July to September, with an average between 20 °C and 25 °C for the Western Isles. On the eastern islands, semi-desert, average summer temperatures reach 35 °C. It is remarkable that the temperature differences are around at least 10 °C between the north and south coasts because of the trade winds that moderate the climate.

    Regarding the precipitation rate, it varies with the regions, between 300 mm (in the lowlands) and 500 mm (in the higher regions). Sometimes a hot wind of desert type (calima) disturbs the followers of the god Helios. With all this and the 300 days of sun per year, the climate of the Canary Islands is considered one of the nicest in the world.

    Canary Islands Travel Guide | Spanish Fiestas

    The Canary Islands archipelago is just off the north-west coast of the Western Sahara and has long been famous as an all-year round sunshine holiday destination. There are seven main islands in the group which are all surprisingly different to each other. From west to east these are as follows: El Hierro, La Palma, La Gomera, Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. In addition, there are a number of smaller islets, of which La Graciosa, to the north of Lanzarote, is the only one inhabited.

    The autonomous community of the Canary Islands is divided into two Provinces: Las Palmas de Gran Canaria being the eastern province and Santa Cruz de Tenerife the western one. Although originally Las Palmas de Gran Canaria was the regional capital, there are now joint capital cities.

    Geography of the Canary Islands

    At its closest point only some 95 km from the African coast, the Canary Islands rise from the Jurassic ocean crust and, along with Cape Verdi, the Azores and the Savage Isles are part of Macronesia. All of the islands are volcanic in origin, although of vastly different time periods. Mount Teide, on Tenerife, is not only Spain’s largest mountain peak but also the world’s third largest volcano. La Palma has been the subject of much scientific research and/or wild speculation with regard to being the island that could cause the tidal wave that destroys the eastern seaboard of the USA, and its active volcano is being constantly monitored. All of the islands are mountainous and the further east one travels, the more desert-like much of the landscape can become. There are no rivers in the Canary Islands although, after heavy rainfall, the deeply cut barrancos can run with water quite ferociously.

    History of the Canaries

    Pliny the Elder and Homer – and perhaps Plato in his references to Atlantis – wrote about the Canary Islands and throughout early history they were known as The Fortunate Isles, the Summits of the Atlantic and the Garden of the Hesperides. Phoenicians, Romans and Arabs all colonised the islands but they were previously inhabited by native guanches probably of North African Berber origin. It was the Romans who first gave the name Canaries to the islands – because of the dogs that were prevalent there. So the islands were named after the dogs; the birds were named after the islands!

    It was in 1402 that the Castilian forces first came to Lanzarote and other islands, led by Jean de Béthencourt, who became King of the Canary Islands. It took until the end of the century, though, to fully overcome the fierce resistance of the indigenous people and in 1496 the islands became part of the Kingdom of Castilla.

    The Canary Islands proved an ideal place to use as a base for voyaging to the Americas – indeed, they still are as cruise ships call in, and tall ships and yacht races frequently call here or start from here. The strategic importance of the archipelago led to attacks from the Turks, the Dutch and the English – Admiral Lord Nelson lost his arm in a sea fight off Tenerife – but the Spanish successfully kept control.

    Thanks to the lack of light pollution in the skies of the Canary islands some of the world’s most powerful observatories are located here including those in NASA tracking stations.

    The economy of the islands had been established mainly around the growing of sugar cane but during the 18th and 19th centuries this market became dominated by the Americas and the Canaries suffered an economic downturn. As a result there was mass emigration to Venezuela, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Cuba and other parts of Central and Southern America and it wasn’t until the banana was introduced as a replacement for sugar cane at the end of the nineteenth century that the region started to recover. At this time, many British and other European businesses also came, helping the infrastructure develop enormously.

    Franco was appointed Commander of the Canary Islands in 1936 – in order to try to get him as far away from Madrid as possible – but it was from here that he was called to lead the military uprising that led to the civil war. There was little resistance to the military in the archipelago but the regime after the war was particularly harsh on this area, leading to a great feeling of resentment. It emerged a few years ago that Franco himself was so concerned about the islands that at one stage he tried to sell them to Portugal and then, a few years later, he offered them to the USA as part of a deal for having bases in Spain.

    With the development of tourism during the last 50 years or so, there has been much more migration to the Canary Islands from the mainland of Spain and they now have a very Spanish feel to them. In spite of such migration most true Canarian people are still very proud of their guanche heritage and their traditional culture remains very active.

    Language of the Canary Islands

    Although the Guanche language of the indigenous peoples is extinct there are still some remnants of it in the local Spanish dialect – which even Spanish visitors from the peninsula often find difficult to understand. What is more peculiar is the presence of words adopted from the English such as ‘queque’ meaning cake and ‘guagua’ which means bus and was originally the way the local people pronounced the English word ‘wagon’ at the beginning of the twentieth century.

    I recall once asking a student from the Canary Islands why he was late to class to which he replied with something that sounded like “I lose the wowa” which was his way of saying “I missed the bus”. The verb ‘perder’ meaning to lose and to miss is often confused by Spanish students

    In La Gomera there is a whistling language that was developed to allow people to communicate across the wide ravines of the island and this is still in existence – but mainly for the benefit of tourists nowadays.

    Canary Islands Climate

    The Canary Islands have sometimes been known as the ‘islands of eternal spring’ because of their year-round pleasant weather. Basically, there is warm, sunny weather for most of the year with summer temperatures rarely becoming too hot – the maximum is about 28°C in most places – and the winter rarely dropping into single figures at night except in the mountains.

    However, the further west you travel, the wetter the islands become, with the result that Hierro and La Palma are far greener than Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. Similarly, because of the inland mountains, both Tenerife and Gran Canaria have much more rain in the north of the island than in the south – hence the major tourist areas being in the southern parts.

    The Trade Winds are part of the reason for the mild conditions and they tend to be stronger in the summer than in the winter but occasionally they can veer in direction and come from the Sahara, resulting in a hot, sand-carrying wind, a calima, which can be quite unpleasant.

    Getting to the Canary Islands

    Most visitors to the islands arrive by plane with both charter and scheduled flights from all over the continent serving the major airports. If you are flying to Tenerife and are going to be based in the south, then try to select a flight to that airport as it can be a lengthy journey from Tenerife North if you should land there. The three smaller islands also have airports and the local airline, Binter Canarias Airways, operates many flights between them all each day if you want to ‘island hop’.

    There are various ferry services between the islands that offer a cheaper alternative to flying and most of them cater for both foot passengers and those with cars.

    Once on the islands you will discover that the largest of them have major motorways connecting the airports with the main tourist areas and roads in and around towns are generally of a good standard. Mountain roads, however, can sometimes be rather daunting until you are used to them and take note, Canarian drivers are often worse than their mainland counterparts!

    There are no rail services on the islands but they all have frequent, cheap bus services – it is best to have a season ticket if you intend to travel on them frequently; they are known as ‘bonos’ and can save you as much as 50% of your fare.

    Tourist Destinations in the Canary Islands

    More than one third of the GDP of the Canary Islands comes from tourism. Gran Canaria and Tenerife are the two most popular destinations with visitors and they are perhaps the two most similar of all the Canary Islands. Both have their major centres of population in the north of the island, a very attractive and green mountainous interior, and huge resorts in the south. Both islands also have areas – such as Puerto Rico in Gran Canaria – that originally catered for the budget end of the market but have since tried to reinvent themselves by adding some all-inclusive and higher quality hotels.

    The two islands have perhaps suffered in many ways because of their ‘cheap and cheerful’ reputations but they can offer much to the most discerning of travellers. The interiors are quite spectacular, dotted with attractive villages clinging to the mountain sides, and both have capital cities with architecture and atmosphere that can rival similar cities in mainland Spain. Meandering through the old town of Tenerife or along the spectacular city beach, Las Canteras, in Las Palmas can prove to be a rewarding experience.

    The westward islands are true paradises for walkers and nature lovers. La Palma, with its wonderfully scenics walks around the volcanoes in the south or the Caldera, the enormous crater that dominates the north of the island, is known as ‘La Isla Bonita’ and there really cannot be many more beautiful places in the world. Driving around can require strong nerves and a good sense of direction but even if you do get lost the island is only 50km by 25km at its widest so it won’t take too long to orientate yourself. All three of these smaller islands, Hierro, La Gomera and La Palma, offer peaceful holidays which are light years away from the popular perception of the Canary Islands.

    Fuerteventura has some spectacular wide, sandy beaches and is a delight for water sport enthusiasts. As the name implies, wind surfing and kite boarding are immensely popular here with regular World Championship events being held.

    Puerto del Carmen in Lanzarote

    Lanzarote is in many ways a good example of well-controlled tourism. Because of the influence of the artist and architect César Manrique, strict regulations were introduced – still in place today – to govern the development of the island. There are no high rise buildings in Lanzarote and strict rules to follow about where and what developments can be built. Manrique’s influence is all around the island – sculptures on roundabouts; his fascinating house built into the volcanic landscape; the incredible Jameos del Agua, with an underground concert hall constructed in a volcanic ‘bubble’; and the Mirador el Rio, overlooking the nearby island of La Graciosa. More than anything, though, the abiding memory of Lanzarote will be of the lunar landscape and the astonishing Timanfaya National Park.

    Things to do in The Canary Islands

    Windsurfers, kite boarders, mountain climbers, walkers, cyclists, divers, golfers, bird watchers, naturists, sea fishermen – these are just a few of the many activities available in the islands. The respective island tourist boards have assembled excellent guides for walkers and tourist trails for those with varied interests. The ideal aspect for many, of course, is that these activities are possible throughout the year – there is no real ‘off season’.

    Festivals in the Canary Islands

    The Carnivals of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria – both of which stretch over three weekends in February or March – are famous throughout Spain because of their vibrant atmospheres. These are truly spectacular occasions. Maspalomas, in Gran Canaria, also has a Carnival worth seeing, if only for the unforgettable Carnival Drag Queen festivities.

    Las Palmas has an annual Womad festival in the autumn that attracts many international artists and both of the main islands have an impressive array of Jazz and Classical Music Festivals each year.

    Food and Drink of the Canaries

    The Canary Islands’ two most notable additions to Spanish cuisine are mojo and gofio. Mojo is a very spicy sauce made from garlic and peppers. It is usually red but you can also have a green version. It is served with most fish dishes here but also with the ubiquitous Canarian potatoes known as papas arrugadas. This literally means ‘wrinkled potatoes’, because they have been boiled in their jackets in very salty water until they are wrinkled. Gofio is a roasted mixture of wheat and grain or barley. Canarians tend to eat this with everything – as a breakfast cereal or just pouring it on soups or stews. It is an acquired taste and my recommendation would be to have it as a dessert, usually as Mousse de Gofio, where it has a pleasant rather rich and nutty taste.

    Other Canarian dishes include watercress soup (‘Potaje de berros’) and a lovely broth known as ‘Rancho Canario’. Spanish speakers might be surprised to see ‘Ropa Viejo’ – old clothes – on local menus. This was formerly a peasant dish made up of all the left over meat and vegetables from previous meals but is now often put on as a tapas speciality.

    Obviously, fish is plentiful and fresh here but there is also plenty of pork, rabbit and goat to be had and the goats’ cheese can be delicious. For many, though, the sheer freshness and tastiness of locally grown avocadoes, mangos, oranges, tomatoes, strawberries, etc. , grown all through the year and available at local markets is what really attracts about Canarian eating.

    Wine is produced grown on the islands which has a distinctive flavour because of the volcanic nature of the soil. Best known are the wines of Lanzarote, especially El Grifo, a clean, crisp dry white wine that deserves a wider reputation.

    Many residents drink locally produced rum – a thriving remnant of the sugar industry. You might well be given a small glass of ron miel, the native honey rum, at the end of a meal. If you are, then I hope you have a sweet tooth!

    Canaries, a paradise in the ocean

    There, between Europe and Africa, in Spain‘s westernmost and southernmost point lies a paradise: it is the Atlantic archipelago of the Canaries, where the climate is always warm and the natural heritage is priceless, the perfect destination for any type of travel, including hiking in the national parks, windsurfing, skiing and night life.

    The islands are seven (Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Lanzarote, La Palma, El Hierro, La Gomera), each unique and with different characteristics. Today we take you to discover these paradisiacal islands that despite the mass tourism, in the last few years are engaging more and more in environmental protection, focusing on sustainable development.

    Gran Canaria

    The bustling nightlife of Las Palmas and Playa del Ingles meets the desert. Gran Canaria looks like a small continent, with different climates and ecosystems, from mountain peaks to the cliffs, from woods to beaches. The western area of ​​the island was declared a Biosphere Reserve in 2005 and experiences to try are infinte: whale watching, walks in the park of El Nublo, 60 km of beaches, not to mention a little shopping and museums.

    Where to stay: in the heart of the island, in the village of La Lechuza, you can stay in a really nice rural hotel, with traditional architecture and design.

    Tenerife

    Tenerife is the largest and the highest island of the Canaries and it surprises its visitors for its culture and the diversity of landscapes: you can relax on the beach and then get to 3,718 meters above sea level, on the Teide volcano, the third highest in the world. Despite its size, the island has two World Heritage Sites: the Teide National Park, with its lunar landscapes, and the historic center of La Laguna, with its beautiful colonial architecture. Do not miss the beautiful beach of La Tejita and the incredible Anaga Rural Park. In Tenerife a few years ago it was inaugurated a village with 25 bioclimatic housing, completely self-sufficient from an energy point of view.

    Where to stay: LodeCarta casa rural Arafo Tenerife awaits you for an eco-holiday. The property, that dates back to the eighteenth century, is powered only by the sun and is located on the road leading to the Teide National Park.

    Fuerteventura

    Uncontaminated coastline, emerald waters make the island of Fuerteventura a paradise for water sports, especially windsurf. You can choose from over 150 km of beaches to enjoy fresh fish, tame the waves and watch the sunset. But in recent years the tourism has become more varied, they increase the different paths, well-marked and maintained, to be covered on foot or by bicycle. And do not miss the delicious cheese!

    Lanzarote

    It is the oldest island of the Canaries and is characterized by black and red volcanic soils that find their maximum expression in the Timanfaya National Park. Already a Biosphere Reserve in 1993, Lanzarote has become the first destination in the world to achieve a sustainable tourism certification, the Biosphere Responsible Tourism certification. It is the perfect place to relax among the vineyards, volcanoes and caves.

    Where to stay: Finca De Arietta is the perfect place for a rustic and simple holiday. Sleep in a yurt or in a ecological cottage, just a few steps from the sea.

    La Gomera

    Its lush forests make it the greenest island in the Canaries. Few tourists, it’s the perfect destination for trekking and hiking in an authentic and pristine environment. It remains one of the few places in the world where you can admire a laurel forest of humid subtropical climate that reach 40 meters high. Do not miss the unique and charming cliffs of Los Órganos, accessible only by boat.

    La Palma

    This island, far away from mass tourism and a Biosphere Reserve, is also called Starlight: the clear and protected skies offer unbeatable conditions for stargazing. Immerse yourself in the lush nature, discover the waterfalls, the black beach of Puerto Naos, the old town of Santa Cruz De La Palma: you’ll love this piece of heaven.

    Where to stay: Finca Los Vientos is a country house, elegantly restored, in the east of the island, halfway between the airport and the capital, with a spectacular view of the valley and the ocean.

    El Hierro

    It is certainly the wildest and authentic island, a perfect destination for rural tourism and it is our favorite for an extraordinary event: it is the first island in the world to be 100% sustainable thanks to a system that can harness the hydro and wind power of the island. Already in the ’90s the island has adopted a model of sustainable development, focusing on recycling, organic agriculture and farming and eco-friendly transportation. It is definitely an example to follow in the world and also is a real gem, one of the most beautiful ocean floor of the world, steep cliffs, and the beautiful contrast between the lava fields and green forests are waiting for an unforgettable holiday.

    Which of the Canary Islands is perfect for you?

    Everything about the sun-soaked Canary Islands, which could be added to the UK’s ‘green’ list from May 17 thanks to its low Covid rates and effective vaccine programme, always seems to feel bigger and brighter.

    I’ve paid the Spanish islands a visit at least once a year since I was a teenager, and the enormity of the place always strikes me, whether that is while gazing up at the pineapple-top foliage of the palm trees around the hotel pool, gawping at the human-dwarfing size of the rainforest’s evergreen ferns, or running, grinning, down the dunes, my heels spraying golden sand in my wake.

    I’ve risen before dawn to climb Mount Teide at Tenerife’s volcanic heart, and watched the sky turn candyfloss pink and then brightest cerulean at the start of yet another sunny winter’s day. I’ve taken off above pounding waves on a kitesurfing lesson, snorkelled with vast shoals of shiny, darting fish, and romped across jet-black lava fields and through endless pine forests. Yes, there are brash resorts, but these are confined to a couple of strips of overdeveloped land, making them easy to avoid in favour of an empty sandy beach or one of the islands few non-Canarios have even heard of.

    Because that’s the other thing about the Canaries: they are plural. This is an archipelago of eight, each island with its own unique landscape. In the west, lushness prevails, with subtropical rainforests filling volcanic calderas and topping plunging cliffs. Further east, closer to Africa, a drier, flatter lavascape sees sand blown in from the Sahara, and exposed volcanic cones that resemble neat piles of ginger, cinnamon and cumin. The Atlantic surrounds you wherever you go. 

    Their inclusion on the ‘green’ list of the traffic light system would mean there would be no need to quarantine on return to the UK, although on entry it will likely be necessary to provide evidence of a negative Covid-19 test taken within the previous 72 hours. Visitors also need to download the local Radar Covid app. In the general scheme of things, these are not onerous requirements, and with average rainfall in May tickling zero, the Canaries are a great option for an early summer getaway. But which island is the the right one for you? Here are a few pointers… 

    Best for family fun: Tenerife

    Tenerife is the best-known Canary for a reason, dwarfing its neighbours with its sky-piercing volcano and glitzy attractions. Towering Teide volcano is a 12,198ft active peak that is snow-capped in winter. The summit is best reached via cable car (€27/£24 return) and you won’t forget the eye-popping Atlantic views – or the nostril-tingling sulphur plumes – in a hurry. Tenerife’s best family day out can be found at Loro Parque (loroparque.com), home to the world’s most diverse population of parrots, as well as penguins, gorillas and lions (guided tours €100pp including lunch). There are also glorious sandy beaches for sandcastle-building and parent-burying along the Costa Adeje and at Playa de las Teresitas.

    Stay: The hip Hard Rock Hotel Tenerife (0800 021 1256), with its family-friendly pools, kids clubs and rooftop bar, has rooms from £95 including breakfast. Read our complete guide to the best hotels in Tenerife.

    Best for island hopping: La Gomera

    The Canaries were made for island hopping, with ferries criss-crossing them. The easiest two to combine are Tenerife and La Gomera, linked by a 50-minute cruise across some of Europe’s best whale-watching waters (from €17.20 return; navieraarmas.com). From here you can spot bottlenose dolphins and pilot whales, before heading up through La Gomera’s lush valleys to the ancient laurel forest of Garajonay, with its abundant hiking trails, and the pretty beaches of Valle Gran Rey. Don’t miss the boat trip out to Los Órganos, an incredible cliffside curtain of basalt columns (€40; speedy-gomera.com).

    Stay: Parador Conde de la Gomera (0034 913 742 500) offers clifftop rooms from £82 per night. Enjoy the view out towards Tenerife and the sunset-facing pool.

    Best for first-timers: Gran Canaria

    First visit? Compact Gran Canaria has a dash of everything: vast sand dunes, twisted volcanic rock formations, leafy forests and even a town set in a series of ancient caves. The people of Artenara have been cave-dwellers for centuries – and many still are. The new museum (artenara.es) may just sell you on their eco-conscious lifestyle. Also found in the island’s central mountains is Tejeda, a charming hilltop village surrounded by walking routes, and the volcanic thumb of Roque Nublo, once a place of worship for the aboriginal Guanches. The island’s south is sun-soaked and boasts Gran Canaria’s best beaches, including the shifting golden peaks of the Maspalomas dunes. You won’t have to walk far to shake off the crowds – or your clothes (it is nudist-friendly). 

    Stay: The retro-chic Seaside Palm Beach (0034 928 721 032) offers dune-view rooms and a pool surrounded by palms from £200, including breakfast. Read our complete guide to the best hotels in Gran Canaria.

    Best for sand and surf: Fuerteventura 

    For surfing, Fuerteventura blows the other Canary Islands out of the water, with its strong winds, lava reef breaks and lengthy sand beaches. A dirt road known as the North Track sees a steady stream of surfboard-topped camper vans and wetsuit-clad water babies seeking out the best of the waves between the towns of El Cotillo and Corralejo, both of which have numerous surf schools. To the south, Fuerteventura seems to turn entirely to sand, promising endless powdery beaches stretching out into shallow turquoise waters. These are ideal conditions for windsurfing, or for scuba diving on Jandia reef. Here, you can chase trumpet fish, moray eels and groupers, and spot angel sharks and stingrays (guided dives from €46; diveprofuerte.com). 

    Stay: Gran Hotel Bahía Real (0034 971 929 364), just outside Corralejo, has beach-view rooms and a chic ocean-front lounge bar. From £250, including breakfast. Read our complete guide to the best hotels in Fuerteventura.

    Best for a stylish break: Lanzarote 

    “Lanzagrotty” is no more – the chicest of the islands has shaken off its down-at-heel reputation and emerged as the Canary of choice for the hipster crowd. Island-born architect César Manrique is largely responsible for Lanzarote’s harmonious aesthetic, having designed many of the sugar-cube casas scattered across its ebony lavascape, as well as many of the public buildings. Check out his Jameos del Agua, a volcanic tube turned café and concert venue, and the Jardín de Cactus, where the sculptural plants fill an ancient quarry (cactlanzarote.com). Lanzarote also produces the islands’ best wines from the small, friendly bodegas dotted around the interior. Bodega La Geria (lageria.com) and Bodegas Rubicón (bodegasrubicon.com) stand opposite each other, surrounded by vines and lava peaks. Both offer laidback tastings.

    Stay: Manrique-style rural retreat Finca Malvasia (0034 692 155 981) has five chic self-catering apartments clustered around a small pool. Read our complete guide to the best hotels in Lanzarote.

    Best for end-of-the-world appeal: El Hierro

    Before Columbus set sail westwards, El Hierro was the edge of the known world and the island retains an end-of-the-road feel to this day. Stroll through the highland flower meadows and dense El Pinar pine ­forest, swim in the rock pools at La Maceta and feast on seafood at sleepy La Restinga – you will soon slip into island time. Don’t head back before taking a hike among the wind-battered juniper trees at El Sabinar, bludgeoned by the powerful westerlies to form eerie bent-over shapes unlike anything you will have ever seen. 

    Stay: Hotel Puntagrande (0034 611 285 983) is a teeny adults-only bolt hole surrounded by the Atlantic waves. From £129 a night.

    Best for a desert island escape: La Graciosa

    With no cars, no flights and very few visitors, La Graciosa is the quietest Canary by far.  The only way in is by a 30-minute ferry ride (€26 return; lineasromero.com). Cross the wave-rocked strait of El Río from Lanzarote, and your choice on arrival is simple: to bike or not to bike. If you choose to hire two wheels, you will get out to remote Playa de las Conchas faster, but what’s the rush? Stick to your feet and take your time instead, circling the island on dusty beach-back trails, and clambering up Montaña Bermeja for the view down its paprika-coloured slopes to the white sands and turquoise waters beyond.

    Stay: Casa Lola is an ex-fishermen’s house with seafront terrace and two bedrooms. Sleeps four from airbnb.co.uk.

    What about La Palma?

    In a recent feature on La Palma, Telegraph Travel’s Chris Leadbeater wrote: Where Tenerife (918,000 residents) and Gran Canaria (851,000) are busy pockets of humanity, La Palma, though smaller than both, is far thinner of headcount – with just 82,671 souls to its name. This translates to travel. Tenerife pulls in five million tourists a year; La Palma about 275,000. But it has never courted the package market. Only the Princess Hotel on the west coast at Las Indias, and a small range of resorts on the east coast at Los Cancajos, provide anything close to the standard Canarian seaside break, on an island where the beaches are roughshod and black-sanded. 

    Instead, it revels in a different sort of beauty. Likes others in the archipelago, the island is volcanic of birth, but arguably here the geological heritage is even more on display. Maybe because it was the last to erupt – in 1971, when the Teneguia vent, in the far south, opened a vein. The lava flowed across the bottom tip of the island, leaving a hard landscape that, for all its bleakness, has a visual splendour. Most striking, perhaps, is the stubborn contrast of white and black – salt pans that harvest the easiest fruit of the ocean laid out below gloopy folds of congealed rock. Two lighthouses are stationed where these ripples reached the shore. They look like they are guarding the mouth of hell.” Read the full story.

      their habitat today

    “Where do canaries live in nature?” – this question is asked by many. People are used to the fact that the cage is a familiar home for this bird. And it’s hard to imagine that such a pampered creature lives anywhere else in the wild. Meanwhile, it is! Let’s try to find out in more detail where this bird lives.

    Where canaries live: history
    spread of canaries

    Ancestor
    familiar to us home canary –
    reel
    canary. Its main area
    habitats were originally Canarian and
    Azores and the island
    Madeira. That is, the area near the western
    African coasts. Actually,
    Canary Islands and served as a source
    bird names inspiration.

    But, as we know, there is also a European
    wild
    subspecies of these birds. So how did he get
    to the mainland?

    Happened
    it is in the 15th century. Namely, in 1478 –
    then landed on the Canary Islands
    Spaniards. The goal was simple – to expand
    their colonial possessions. At the same time and
    see what’s interesting
    take from this place.

    And among the phenomena that attracted the attention of the Spaniards was the singing of lovely bright birds. Despite the fact that the birds did not survive captivity very well at that time, the locals already at that time tried to domesticate them.

    INTERESTING: However, the Spanish guests were fascinated by the singing of a wild canary rather than a domestic one. For, as the naturalist named Bolle wrote, nature leaves a special imprint on roulades.

    Noted
    that the sounds of wild songbirds are more sonorous,
    clean – in the air simply
    sound is lost. A
    chest sounds are much more impressive
    stronger!
    Local
    residents, remarkably, tried
    make their pets learn
    the singing of wild brethren.

    Spaniards
    so delighted with the canaries,
    that for 100 years they considered themselves
    the only people who have
    the right to take such singers outside
    their usual habitat. enchanted
    conquerors and the voice of birds, and color.
    Colors
    songbirds when spring comes, and the truth
    astounded by their brilliance. And
    Spaniards exported most often males as
    the most vociferous representatives
    of its kind.

    Exists
    the story that the Spanish ship,
    transporting canaries, crashed
    in the Malta area. Someone from the ship’s crew
    managed to open the cages – and the birds flew out
    from there, settled in Malta, crossed
    with local birds. And their offspring
    turned out to be no less beautiful and vociferous,
    than parents.

    Following Spain, canaries migrated to Italy and then to Germany. It happened at the very beginning of the 17th century. In Germany, these songbirds especially took root. Now the canary, called “European wild”, lives in Eastern Europe up to the western regions of Belarus, Ukraine. Even the Leningrad region and the Baltic states obeyed this feathered one. True, it is believed that European birds are not as melodious as their more southern counterparts.

    How wild canaries live:
    their habitat today

    A
    now let’s talk in schematic easy
    to perceive the format of what is
    life of a canary in natural conditions:

    • More
      explorers in past centuries
      wrote about where
      canaries live.
      According to the works already mentioned here
      Bolle, shady forests are not for canaries
      like. But forest plantations that are not
      differ in special density, they are quite
      fit. The edge of some grove,
      an abundance of shrubs – here is a bright
      the songstress is quite possible to meet. Especially
      canaries love gardens nearby
      human housing
      .
      But they also like sand dunes very much.
      It is believed that the optimal height of the place
      habitat for canaries – 1500 m above
      sea ​​level.
    • Why
      Are dense forests not suitable? It stands here
      remember what these birds have
      food.
      It is mainly vegetable – seeds,
      herbs, weeds, various fruits. Sometimes
      Insects can also be used as food.
      Feathered birds find food on the ground among
      other vegetation. Naturally,
      dense tree crowns are undesirable
      nearby – they will give a completely unnecessary
      to search for food shade.

    • Love
      canaries are also an area with small
      ponds, streams.
      Bathing
      is their passion. By the way, she passed
      and domesticated canaries.
    • High
      trees, as already mentioned,
      birds don’t need it. They are used to nesting
      at a height of about 3-4 meters. Speaking of
      nesting: the nest consists of mosses,
      stems, fluff. That is, one of these
      components must certainly
      be present nearby. And also a bush or
      the tree should be at least a little hidden behind
      its foliage is such a nest.

    • Important
      as well as temperature. overwhelming
      most canaries like medium
      mode – such that there is no heat, but
      so that it doesn’t get cold. Except that,
      some European birds
      adapted to low temperatures
      – red-faced finch, for example. A
      so basically it is considered optimal
      range from +16 to +24 degrees.
      Time
      their egg laying is March, April,
      as well as May. So it’s too cold
      spring is undesirable.

    The canary is loved by many people as a cute pet. We hope that the fans of these birds were interested in learning about how it is customary for them to live in natural conditions.

    About the canary and the history of its domestication

    About the canary and the history of its domestication

    The canary belongs to the family of finches, which unites 468 species, which are grouped into 4 subfamilies: bunting, Darwin’s finches, cardinal finches and true finches. Up to 125 species of birds belong to the last subfamily, including the canary.

    The Latin name for the wild canary is Serinus canaria. The first, generic, name is associated with sweet-voiced mythical sirens, and the species name is associated with the habitat of birds, the Canary Islands. The closest relatives of birds belonging to the genus Serinus are 14 species. Most of them are inhabitants of the African continent, but 2 species live in our country. These are canary and red-capped finches.

    The homeland of canaries is the Canary archipelago, located not far from the northwestern coast of Africa. Its largest islands, where canaries are especially numerous, are Palma, Gomera, Gran Canarim, Hierro and Tenerife. In addition, they inhabit the islands of Madeira and Azores. The Atlantic Ocean has a great stabilizing influence on the temperature regime of this region, which is located in the subtropical and tropical climate zones. So, the January air temperature here is not lower than plus 16 degrees Celsius, and the July one does not rise above 24 degrees. Favorable climate and high air humidity contribute to the constant vegetation of plants. These islands are of volcanic origin and are covered with rather high mountains.

    Coloration of wild canaries is not bright. The top of the body is variegated, yellowish-green in color, the forehead, eyebrows, neck, throat and chest are golden yellow with a greenish tint. The sides of the neck are ash grey. Abdomen and rump yellow-green. The flight feathers are dark brown with green outer webs, the tail is dark gray, almost black with light tops of the feathers.

    Wild canaries prefer to settle in forests on mountain slopes up to 1800 meters above sea level. They are also found in the cultural landscape – on plantations and in gardens. They feed mainly on seeds of herbaceous plants, fruits and insects. One of the main components in the diet of canaries are the seeds of canary grass, which grows wild on the islands.

    Canary nesting season lasts from March to July. Then there is a molt, which lasts 2.5 – 3 months. During the season, birds grow 2-3 broods. During the non-breeding period, canaries gather in flocks and roam in search of food.

    Canary nests are made from blades of grass and thin plant fibers. They are placed in the forks of branches at least two meters above the ground. The nest tray is lined with plant down. The clutch consists of 4 – 5 bluish eggs covered with brown specks. The average incubation period is 13 days. Only the female incubates the clutch, and the male protects the nesting territory from encroachments by other males. At this time, he often performs his wonderful song.

    The hatchlings are first fed by both parents. But when the young leave the parental shelter, and this happens on the 17-18th day, the female begins to build a new nest, and her husband feeds the brood for about a week, after which he switches to building and protecting the second nest.

    The song of the wild canary is very similar to the song of its outbred domestic counterparts, although not so rich in knees. It is very sonorous, with beautiful tints, the male constantly changes its ending.

    Canaries have long been kept in cages by indigenous people, even before the arrival of Europeans. The Spaniards and the Portuguese, who conquered the islands in the 15th century, immediately identified these birds among the many birds that live here, and began to bring canaries to Spain and Portugal. These countries managed for some time to maintain a monopoly in the breeding and sale of canaries. This was achieved by selling only males. At that time, canaries were fabulous prices, only very rich people could afford to buy them. Often, kenars were kept in gold or silver cages adorned with precious stones.

    However, in the middle of the 16th century, canaries began to be successfully bred in a number of countries. They describe a case when a batch of canaries was released from a Spanish merchant ship that crashed off the Italian coast. Having settled in local groves, they began to nest with females of the canary finch, their close European relative. As a result of this natural experiment, a hybrid offspring appeared, almost not inferior in song quality to purebred canaries. Local residents drew attention to this, caught some of the birds, among which were hybrid females. Since that time, canaries began to spread rapidly throughout Europe.

    So it was or otherwise, but already at the turn of the 16th – 17th centuries, the first signs of the domestication of our songbird appeared. In different places and independently of each other, pure yellow chicks began to appear in ordinary green birds. By the beginning of the 18th century, up to 30 color forms of canaries were bred. Subsequently, through directional selection, many breeds of singing and decorative canaries were obtained with clearly fixed hereditary traits. Differences from the wild form were no longer limited to coloration. The shape and proportions of the body, the structure of the plumage, and the size of the birds have become different. If the body length of a wild canary is 13 centimeters, then breeds are now known that are much larger than it. So, the body length of the Lancashire and Parisian curly canaries reaches 22 centimeters.

    In the 19th century, the canary conquered the whole world due to its remarkable properties – ease of keeping and breeding, beauty of colored and decorative breeds and beautiful voice of song breeds. She perfectly settled down in the apartments of the inhabitants of America, Australia, South Asia and Africa.

    Canaries were first brought to Russia in the 18th century from Germany. Work with singing canaries was especially developed here. The brought birds had a rich knee and loud Tyrolean nightingale song. But subsequently, Russian amateur breeders began to select males who sing especially melodically, in which there were no loud and harsh sounds in the song. Birds with gentle high and melodic trills were highly valued. And already at the end of the last century, the fame of the Russian canary swept through many countries of Europe and America. Especially good were Gorshkovsky, Ryabovsky, Muzlanovsky and other “moves” of the song, named after their creators. Many residents of the Linen Factory and Pavlov-on-Oka were engaged in breeding oatmeal canaries. At 19In 01, the Moscow circle of lovers of songbirds and other free birds was created, many of whose members bred canaries.

    Canary breeding in our country has acquired a wide scope. In addition to songbirds, many colored and decorative breeds of these birds appeared. Currently, amateurs are engaged in the hybridization of the canary with domestic species of granivorous birds, the selection of the Russian song canary.

    Canary breeding has also received great development abroad, especially in European countries.

    Thus, the history of the domestication of the canary has been going on for about 500 years.

    2 CANARY, birds of the finches family

    CANARY, birds of the finches family

    Common bird in the Canaries, Azores and Madeira. In the 15th century, it was brought to Europe and domesticated. Many breeds of decorative and beautifully singing canaries have been bred.
    Wild canary (Serinus canaria) is a small bird (body length 12-14 cm). The plumage of the male is grayish-green with dark longitudinal streaks, greenish-yellow on the abdomen. The plumage of the female is dull grey. Indigenous habitats are, apparently, mountain forests. However, the bird has fully adapted to life in the cultural landscape and settles in gardens, parks, hedges, etc. In its homeland, the canary is a migratory bird and only in the south leads a sedentary lifestyle. It feeds mainly on small seeds, delicate greens and juicy fruits of figs. He loves to swim very much. Birds fly in flocks to the water to drink and swim, while they strongly wet the plumage. Nests are made in trees. Clutch contains 3-5 eggs. The female incubates. The male usually sits at the ends of branches and sings during the entire nesting period. The song of the wild canary is pleasant, but poorer and less sonorous than that of the domestic one. Wild forms, compared with domestic ones, do not have such a variety of coloring and singing.
    The birds got their name from the name of the group of the Canary Islands, from where they were taken out by the Spanish colonizers. These islands were the center of fishing and export of canaries, although wild canaries were found on the island of Madeira and the Cape Verde Islands. Four hundred years ago, canaries did not have the variety of shapes, colors, and songs that their domestic descendants are famous for. The unpretentiousness of the canary and the fashion for overseas curiosities made this bird very popular among Spanish youth at one time. To have such a bird was considered a sign of good taste. The singers were paid a lot of money. Thanks to the rapid development of navigation, the fame of these birds soon reached many European countries. But in the 15-16 centuries, the canary was still a rare bird in Europe and was valued very dearly. Only wealthy people could buy it. Gradually, people of various classes and professions began to breed canaries.
    The ability to adopt the songs of other birds, the relative ease of breeding and keeping made the canary a favorite of man. Of particular interest to the canary appeared after individuals of yellow color appeared in the offspring of ordinary green birds. Such a transformation, associated with a change in the conditions of existence, occurred almost simultaneously in many European countries in the 17th century. This gave impetus to the development of selection work. A great variety of different breeds and color forms have been bred. Among them there are white, yellow and motley canaries, canaries of normal build and birds on disproportionately high legs with special feather collars. Fans of different countries are breeding canaries in accordance with their tastes. The British managed to bring out varieties of original shapes and colors, for example, “humped”, orange-red with dark green wings (nervous), giant Manchester. Dark brownish-greenish canaries are birds that have retained the color of the wild canary. They are strong, hardy, singing well. Some fans, however, consider their singing too loud. Bright yellow canaries – “saffron” – appeared as a result of the admixture of the blood of colored canaries. They are prolific, but weaker than the dark ones and less capable of singing. Motley canaries were bred by Russian canary breeders when mating green and lemon birds. They are hardy, good singers. Russian and German canary breeders prefer large light yellow (whitish) canaries.
    In Germany, the Adreasberg on the Harz became the breeding center for canaries. The famous Harz or Tyrolean canaries became famous for their flute tune, echoing Tyrolean songs. Such singing of birds was taught with the help of pipes and organ. The secret of breeding and training canaries has been passed down from generation to generation.
    The canary was brought to Russia from Germany in the 17th century. In Russia, until 1917, canary breeding was one of the very significant sources of side income for the population. Canary breeding was practiced in such regions as Smolensk, Tula, Kaluga, Bryansk, Nizhny Novgorod, Ivanovskaya. The village of Pavlovo in the Nizhny Novgorod province, the Linen Factory in the Kaluga region and the small county towns of the Bryansk province – Starodub, Surazh and Novozybkov – were famous for their “canary factories”. Hundreds and thousands of canaries were bred and sold at the Nizhny Novgorod, Kaluga, Smolensk and other fairs. They were bought mainly by Iranians, as well as residents of Central Asia and the Caucasus.
    A canary or other feathered pet could be seen from time immemorial both in a log hut of a rural “poultry house” and in an amateur’s city apartment. Yesterday’s Russian peasants, cut off from their fields, wanted the canary’s singing to remind them of their native nature, and made this dream come true by creating a canary with a peculiar oatmeal tune. In the song of the Russian canary, the melancholy trills of the oatmeal, the sonorous fervent knees of the great tit, the flute whistles of the sandpiper, the silvery play of the forest lark and other famous singers sound. Learning to sing oatmeal began at a young age, they tried to keep the chicks so that they did not hear sounds that could spoil the singing. There were special cage schools for them, where they were placed at the age of two or three months. Here, isolated from each other, the birds could easily learn the singing of the old canary teacher. At the same time, those who were too loud were immediately rejected.

    Singing canary
    Under normal conditions, the domestic canary sings almost all year round, except for the molting season (August). The best singing happens in the spring, from February to March.
    The canary belongs to that group of songbirds whose song consists of so-called knees. The more different tribes in the song, the more diverse the song, the higher the bird is valued. The best birds perform up to 14-15 different tribes. Good birds are considered, in the repertoire of which there are 10-12 tribes. A good singer has a melodic song and begins with the so-called “tee”. These sounds are reminiscent of the call of a swift in flight. Amateurs especially appreciate this trill if it is repeated 3 or 4 times, equal in duration, with a melodic sound. In addition to the variety of songs, the voice itself is also valued in the singing of canaries: it must be clear, strong, but not hoarse, not loud and not screaming, sonorous, but not sharp, but gentle.
    Canary male sings – canary(s). Females sing very rarely and with large defects, besides not for long. At the end of summer and autumn, you should not buy a kenar, since from the end of July, molting begins in canaries, which continues until the third decade of September. During molting, kenari usually do not sing or sing little and weakly. Then, from the end of November, the singing season begins, and by December, the songs of the canaries acquire their fullest sound. Therefore, canaries older than one year and young birds are best purchased in December, when the molt ends and you can get the best, desired tune from them.
    Bunting canaries were taught to sing with the help of wild bunting. Such an oatmeal song contains mainly trills, reminiscent of the singing of certain varieties of wild bunting, includes the trills of the sandpiper, the small and great tit, and sometimes the trills of the lark. Moreover, the song of the oatmeal melody differs in many respects from the song of the wild oatmeal: it is longer, more melodic and more complex, it consists of many tribes. Often mimics the great tit. Kenar should have as many diverse knees as possible, connected by smooth transitions. The slightest blot in singing, a sharp cry that breaks the melody, devalues ​​the bird in the eyes of connoisseurs who lovingly improve this wonderful breed. The song of the piped canary is less loud, and also consists of many tribes. The bird makes deep chest sounds of low tones.

    Keeping at home
    The canary is easily tamed, quite trusting, amenable to “education” and successfully breeds at home. The quality and activity of singing, reproduction, and longevity of the bird depend on the correct maintenance and care of the bird. Canaries can live at home for 15-18 years, they are kept in cages and aviaries.
    The cages are made of hard wood: beech, oak, ash, etc. Metal cages can be used. They are easier to wash, easier to scald. Cells made of plexiglass have a small distribution. In them, the bird is clearly visible from all sides. Rectangular cells are the most convenient in shape. They can be placed one on top of the other so that when several birds are kept in separate cages, they will not see each other, which means that they will sing normally without being irritated. The dimensions of the cages should be such that the bird in it could move freely, fly and be sufficient to install 1-2 perches in one tier.
    The size of the cage is 30-35 cm long, 20-22 cm wide, height 27-29 cm. The distance between the twigs is no more than 1.2-1.4 cm. The door in the cage should be located on the side. The bottom must be double, preferably made of thin stainless steel (inner bottom) and always retractable, so that it is easier to clean the cage, change the sand in it and disinfect.
    Feeders can be placed on the bottom of the cage, but this most often results in an unsanitary condition of the feed and the cage. It is desirable, however, that the feeders in the cages be retractable. In this position, it is easy to get them when feeding and the birds will have less anxiety.
    The cage must have a perch for a bird, which is a round perch with a thickness of not more than 1.5 cm. The surface of the perch is left rough, not cleaned. The distance between the perches should be such that, jumping from one to the other, the bird can freely flap its wings.
    For group keeping of poultry, young animals, cages, flying cages are used. The size of the passage cells is larger than usual. For transporting birds, it is best to use a carrier cage.
    Canaries love to swim. Bathing cleanses the skin and strengthens the plumage. Bathing water should be at room temperature. The bathing suit is attached to the outside of the door so that water does not get into the cage. After each bath, the bathing suit is cleaned and the doors are closed. Bathing suits should be washed daily. Canaries should be taught to bathe from an early age, that is, from the moment they are jigged from the female – after 30-35 days of age.
    Cages should be cleaned at least twice a week. At this time, the bird needs to be transplanted – overtaken to another cage, placing the cages with open doors to each other. The entire inventory of the cage – a pallet, feeders, drinking bowls, perches – must be taken out and rinsed well with hot water, then scalded and disinfected with a solution of chlorophos, chamomile infusion. Scald the perch sticks as well. As already noted, they must be hollow inside so that parasites can be knocked out from there by tapping, shaking on white paper.
    After disinfection, the cage and inventory must be thoroughly washed again, scalded, wiped and dried. Dry chamomile is poured under the pallet and inserted into its original place. Clean, dry river sand, a thin layer of crushed eggshells from a boiled egg are poured onto the pallet (bottom of the cage). Sand and eggshell serve as a mineral feed for the bird, maintain its health and promote digestion. After that, feed is poured into the feeders and placed in the feeding place.
    Drinking water must be at room temperature. It is poured into small glass or porcelain dishes (3-4 cm high) and placed on the bottom of the cage in a place convenient for drinking birds. Between the twigs of the cage, you can insert small feeders in the form of a thimble or a plastic cork for periodic feeding with honey, grated carrots, and yolk in addition to the main food.
    The cage is placed in a well-lit place, but not in the sun, not in a window, and not in a draft. If the room closes, you can and should let the bird fly. Initially 5-10 minutes, and then up to 40-45 minutes. You can teach a bird to sit on your hand, on your shoulder, but this requires a lot of patience. Cages with canaries need to be approached so that the birds see you: talking to them in an even, gentle voice, you will win the trust of the bird, you can even teach them to sit on your hand.
    Canary food
    For canaries, as for most granivorous birds, the main diet is grain feed: canary seed, rapeseed, hemp seed, millet, lettuce seed, linseed, oatmeal, colza seeds, small buckwheat. You can give the bird a grain mixture and add a few grains of dandelion, plantain, poppy seeds to the main part. The grain mixture is cooked for a long time so that it is ready for daily feeding.
    Soft food is prepared from boiled and finely chopped chicken eggs. The egg can be mixed with very finely crushed breadcrumbs. You can also add finely grated carrots. Soft food is recommended to be fed to an adult bird once a week. For half an egg, take one tablespoon of flour and one teaspoon of grated carrots. This mixture is placed in a thimble feeder or placed in a special feeder next to the main feed. This will make up the amount of soft food needed by the bird. Too much food can cause obesity.
    In the spring-summer period, green food can be given to birds: wood lice leaves, dandelion leaves, lettuce leaves. But green fodder should also not be abused, as it can cause indigestion.

    Singing training
    Kenar singing depends to a large extent on natural voice, purebred, teacher’s singing. All the main features of singing can be inherited. Naturally, in terms of the wealth of the knees and the quality of their performance, self-taught canaries are inferior to a well-trained male.
    In order for a young male to learn a good song, he must listen to good singers of his breed. Observations show that the singing abilities of birds are developed differently. Canaries as singers are finally formed at the age of two to three years. After that, the male no longer takes over, as a rule, any other song, other sounds. It happens that during the molt, even good singers forget their song. Kenar must be given time to remember the song, without letting anyone listen, and he will sing again. It is advisable to have a tape recording of your good singers and play it periodically to restore the melody.
    Most amateurs teach young animals to sing in a natural way – they keep young animals next to the teacher. After the males have decided, they are seated in separate cages, then they are substituted for the teachers, that is, the cage with the teacher is placed on top of the cage with the student. After 6-7 months, young kenars can fully master the song, and by the year the song stabilizes. If you notice that a young male sings with interference (growls, calls or other distortions), this bird must be removed so as not to spoil the singing of other birds and even the singing of the teacher.
    Many canary breeders use the bird blackout method. They begin to darken young kenars from the period when they have trills with a clear pronunciation of the desired move. The cage is darkened, leaving a hole for the bird to see food and water. At first, the cage with the bird is darkened for a short time so that it sings little, but listens more to the teacher’s singing. The teacher is also kept closed, and only when it is necessary to listen to his singing, the cage is opened. This is repeated several times a day for 30-40 minutes so that the teacher and student are not very tired. Most often, the “covered” bird is kept by canary breeders, preparing canaries for competitions, for display. The fact is that as soon as the bird is opened, it almost immediately begins to sing – a fixed reflex is triggered.
    Because canaries are capable of producing many sounds, some fanciers use a variety of whistles, pipes, and even bells to train the birds. The technique is basically the same: it is necessary several times a day – 3-4 times to play the young male on the chosen instrument for 20, 30, 40 minutes, so that the bird does not get very tired. The song must be played periodically until it is fully consolidated.
    You can teach your bird to sing by playing a tape of the desired song. Moreover, in this way it is possible to teach singing to both “covered” and “open” birds. The training methodology is almost the same – 3-4 times a day the bird should listen to the sounds that you want to teach it to imitate.
    Still, most canary breeders believe that it is possible and necessary to teach a bird to sing well in an open cage, having good teachers and appropriate natural characteristics in young males.

    Canary breeding
    Canaries have been breeding in cages for hundreds of years. The body of a domestic canary is very plastic. By changing the feeding conditions, you can make the canary change the color of its plumage.
    In their homeland, in natural conditions, in wild canaries, the breeding season begins in the 2nd half of March. The best time for mating and breeding chicks in our conditions is spring (March, April, May). During this period, there is a longer daylight hours, and the female can feed the chicks longer. To obtain good offspring, it is necessary to carefully select the male and female. The male should be large, with an interesting song, beautiful plumage, active. Age – at least 1 year old. The female must also have the appropriate qualities. It is advisable to pair males from one and a half to two years and even up to five years, and females – from 11 months to three to four years. The coloration of the offspring is influenced by both producers, and the male influences the vocal qualities, susceptibility to the song and hearing. This should also be taken into account when choosing a pair.
    Some amateur canary breeders practice breeding one male with two or three females and still get normal broods, but this requires a lot of experience. A more accessible way is to bring one male to one female. Before mating, a cage with a male and a cage with a female are placed side by side so that the birds can see each other and begin to show mutual interest. The male during this period daily, for 5-6 days, is given soft food in addition to grain. Increase the diet and females. Ready for mating birds are planted in one cage. The male is planted first, and after a day or two, the female is planted next to him. By this time, the male will get used to the new environment. The female released to the male quickly mates with him and proceeds to build a nest. From the start of mating and nest building to the laying of the first egg, it takes from three to ten days.
    Mating cage may be normal or slightly larger. The nest can be hung in the corner of the cage from the inside or outside, in a quiet place. In nature, canaries have a cup-shaped nest, and therefore amateur canary breeders make an artificial nest of the same shape or a nest base, usually made of clothesline.
    So that the female can safely build a nest, she needs to put pieces of chopped cotton or linen threads 2-3 cm in size, small pieces of linen or cotton fabric and even well-dried fine hay gathered into a ball into the cage. Within 6-7 days, the female builds a nest, after which she begins to lay eggs. As soon as the first egg is laid, it is necessary to remove the remaining building materials, fill in fresh sand, and clean the cage from accumulated construction debris. This is done because sometimes the female continues to build the nest and breaks the egg in the process. You can not change the location of the nest or rearrange the cage after the female lays the egg and especially after the chick or the brood is fully born. If there is an extreme need for this, it must be done very carefully and only at night. There were cases when the female left the nest, stopped feeding the chicks. Egg laying can last 4-6 days. After the female lays 3-4 eggs, the male is removed from the cage, as the female herself can feed the chicks. But you can leave the male, and he will actively help the female in hatching and feeding the chicks.
    A female canary incubates chicks for 13 days. Males also take part in incubation of eggs. At the moment when the female leaves for feeding, he replaces her. On the 14th day, the chicks hatch from the eggs. 3-4 hours after the appearance of the chicks, the female begins to feed them. Both parents also feed the chicks from the beak. There are times when the male destroys the nest, throws out eggs and even chicks. Such a male should be removed immediately. The main thing is that there should always be grain soft food in the feeders. At this time, in addition to the grain mixture, the female is given soft food – a mass of boiled eggs with pounded crackers.
    The cubs that have flown from the nest initially seem clumsy, inept. On the 24-28th day after hatching, the chicks separated from their parents find and eat soft and grain food well. Young male canaries on the 35-37th day after leaving the nest begin to sing (chirp). The sounds made by the young male are deep, long and continuous. The “singing” of a young female is higher, short and jerky, with large pauses. This period of “singing” in young birds is very short: 10-12 days before the start of molting. In the period of growing up, you need to determine the sex of the birds. Males usually begin to chirp by puffing out their goiter, and females make a “tiv-tiv” sound. Identified males need to be deposited, each in a separate cage, and females can be kept together in one cage. Young males at the age of 5-6 months begin to sing in an incomplete and weak voice, and by 8-9months go to full voice. In a good kenar, the song is fully strengthened only by the age of two.

    Nutrition of canaries

    Every person who decides to have a canary at home should know a little history and bright facts. These are birds that deserve attention and historically, their singing and beauty did not leave a person indifferent. The birds that the Spaniards saw in the Canary Islands got their first distribution, they began to export birds, sell them for millions of money, and only a little later, after decades, the birds became widespread in the world and accessible to ordinary people. Birds began to be bred, crossed with other types of birds, as a result, from one ordinary wild Canary canary finch, many other types of canaries were obtained, which differed in colorful color and more melodic song. Over time, the size and vocal apparatus of birds have changed slightly, but the history of domestication itself remains unchanged.

    Keeping at home

    The bird is not whimsical enough and can live 8-12 years with proper feeding and timely provision of veterinary care.

    The canary should live in a fairly spacious cage with a mesh size of 1.2-1.4 cm between the twigs so that the bird cannot fly out, the recommended sizes are 30-35 length, 20-22 width, 27-29 height, but the larger , all the better. The more active the bird is, and the more it flies, the healthier it will be. If possible, it is best to keep canaries in aviaries, where they can move freely and train their muscles.

    Materials can be very different: metal, wood, plastic, plexiglass. It is best that the cage is square and one wall is adjacent to the wall of the room, in which case the bird will feel more secure and comfortable. It is not recommended to buy round cages, as the bird may experience stress and apathy.

    It is desirable that the cage has a retractable bottom, so it will be easier for you to clean the cage. Birds should have several different bowls for food and a separate bowl or drinker for water. Also, birds are very fond of taking water procedures, so they should have a separate bath. It is also necessary that there is a perch in the cage (one or more), this is such a suspended stick no more than 1.5 cm thick, it must be rough, usually made of wood or plastic, in order for the canary to sit comfortably.

    When keeping canaries, you need to be very careful and pay attention to where you place the cage, because any draft for canaries is very bad and the owner should be very careful not to let the bird through, otherwise it may end badly.

    Keeping canaries with other birds

    Any environment plays a very important role in the life of a bird and it is worth choosing friends for your canary very carefully. Canaries can only be kept from birds of the chaffinch family, which are similar to canaries in size and have similar singing. You should not plant canaries and parrots in one cage, because these birds are very different and do not understand each other, they make different sounds, do not find agreement, over time, the parrot may begin to offend the canary. Also, do not put males in one cage, as their dominance instincts will work and one bird will start to suppress the other.

    Cage cleaning

    Also has its own specifics. The cage must be cleaned at least 2 times a week, so to speak, to carry out general cleaning in the canary’s house. While cleaning the cage, the bird can be released to fly in your house, after ensuring its safe flight, closing all windows, removing everything that is hot, easy to break, closing other pets that can harm the bird. Another canary can be transplanted into another, the same cage by opening the cage doors, opposite each other. All inventory in the cage must be thoroughly washed and disinfected.

    Food for canaries

    For birds, you can buy ready-made grain mixtures for canaries; fruits, berries, and minerals are also added to the diet. If we talk about the amount of grain, then the recommended amount is usually written on the package, on average it is 1-2 teaspoons per day. From greenery, canaries are given seasonal plants in summer, these are: dandelion leaves, plantain, horse sorrel, lettuce, etc. In winter, they give sweet apples, grated, carrots, sweet peppers. You can also give the birds germinated grain, which will also be incredibly useful. Greens can be given several times a week, an excess can provoke diarrhea. From additional food, canaries are given mineral supplements: crushed egg shells and special minerals. Also, the diet of a canary may differ, depending on the time of year and the physiological characteristics of the bird. During the molting period, and this is approximately the end of summer, the diet must be strengthened. An enhanced diet is also required by birds that are preparing for laying eggs, mating or incubating offspring.

    Birdsong

    Male canaries sing mostly. And the most interesting thing is that canaries must be taught to sing! From an early age, it is necessary to turn on the audio sounds of songs of other birds, so the canary will listen, remember and repeat the melody in the future. Young chicks listen to their father’s singing, and in the future they sing the songs they heard from their parents. If you want your bird to sing special or beautiful songs, you can teach it, there are many videos and songs on YouTube channel that you can use as educational material, including your bird.

    Friendship with a person

    Canaries are very friendly birds, they can hardly endure separation from their owner and love live communication. Some owners claim that canaries are extremely intelligent and just as loyal to their owners as cats and dogs! Canaries sing according to their mood and if they feel good, their songs last forever.

    Conclusions

    Canaries are wonderful domestic birds that can turn your every day into a holiday, decorating it with their sonorous and melodious singing. The sounds of a canary will help you find harmony with yourself, peace, help dispel sad thoughts and touch something eternal and pristine, because the sounds of birds have accompanied people from the very beginning of existence! In a big city, nature is so often lacking, and it is the canary that can help you create a small oasis at home and your quiet place where you can fill up with strength and relax. You just need to follow the rules, as in everything! Study your bird, create comfortable living conditions for it, properly feed and care for it, pay attention to the needs of your canary and notice if something went wrong. Separately, read the article on canary diseases and if you notice any such symptoms, be sure to contact your veterinarian!

    Introduction

    The canary is a rather unprepossessing little bird, yet it has managed to win the love of the whole world. What is the secret of such success? Of course, in unusually beautiful singing. However, there are quite a lot of songbirds in nature: nightingale, thrush, oriole, etc. Why did the canary become a permanent resident of our apartments?

    The answer is that the canary is not too demanding in terms of conditions of detention. She easily endures captivity, is unpretentious to the conditions of detention, and in a cage she sings no less beautifully than in the wild.

    Canary breeding is also easy. Each amateur can engage not only in breeding birds, but also in their selection. Canaries are very viable and easily amenable to genetic changes.

    Another advantage is the bird’s ability to learn. Their ability to imitate other birds and even the melodies of classical music has always attracted the attention of bird lovers. The canary breeders were eager to create certain tunes that amaze with their beauty and perfection.

    Modern canary breeding offers birds of various colors. Thanks to selection, famous singers have also changed in appearance, so much so that real exhibitions are now being organized.

    All this and much more, useful to every lover who wants to get a canary, will be told in this book.

    1. The history of the origin of the breed

    The word “canary” comes from the name of the Canary Islands – the geographical homeland of this popular bird. The Canary Islands are located in the Atlantic Ocean, northwest of Africa. The island group includes 13 islands, 5 of which are known for their picturesque nature and pleasant climatic conditions, which have made them a popular world resort.

    Europeans discovered the Canary Islands in the 14th century. They were sailors from Spain. They appreciated the beauty of the islands and favorable conditions for life, seized the islands and settled on them, declaring the property of Spain.

    Very soon, the new owners of the islands noticed small green birds with a yellow belly, which sang very beautifully. Their singing was so beautiful that it did not leave indifferent even the cruel conquerors. Perhaps for the first time they saw and heard little singers from the locals, who learned to catch birds and kept them in reed cages.

    In addition to the Canaries, canaries were later found also in Madera, Porto Santo and the uninhabited Azores, which were discovered by Portuguese navigators in the 15th century. The birds that lived there were very close wild relatives of the canary – the Canarian finches.

    Sailors began to import domesticated songbirds from the Canary Islands to their homeland, Europe. The sailors also named the new birds “kanario” after the name of the place from where they began to be brought. This popular name has been preserved for small birds, despite the fact that they were subsequently brought from other places. In different countries, the name of the birds acquired a local sound. So, in Russia the name “canary” was fixed.

    Canaries brought from the Canary Islands were even given as gifts to kings and queens. Despite their nondescript appearance, the birds were able to win the love and admiration of high-ranking persons with their singing. For the singers, they made golden cages adorned with precious stones, and also created spacious enclosures with living plants, more like gardens.

    Everyone liked the little birds. Soon sailors began to export them in large numbers, not only buying domesticated individuals from the local population, but also catching wild birds in large numbers. However, wild, not accustomed to live in captivity, canaries soon died. Therefore, despite the huge import, they were not widespread in Europe.

    Spanish monks were the first to learn how to breed canaries in captivity. They were also able to commercialize this activity for their monasteries. They raised birds for sale, but they tried to sell only males so that the new owners of canaries could not breed them themselves.

    Perhaps thanks to the efforts of the monks in the XVI century. canaries were still a rarity in Europe and were so expensive that only rich people were able to purchase them. The canary at that time was a symbol of wealth.

    Wealthy people, in turn, had the opportunity to provide birds with good living conditions, which contributed to their adaptation to life in captivity. In addition, despite all the precautions, along with males, it happened that females were also sold, since they almost did not differ in color.

    In this way some of the new owners got the opportunity to breed canaries. The increase in the number of birds raised in captivity has led to a decrease in their price and, accordingly, to a wider distribution among different segments of the population. At the same time, they remained popular with noble people.

    Male and female wild canaries

    Canaries became especially popular in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, when yellow individuals began to appear among green birds. This attracted the attention of amateur breeders from different countries. The change in color was undoubtedly associated with the conditions in which the birds were kept. A boom in colored canary breeding began in Europe.

    Many fanciers began to engage in targeted breeding, which soon led to the appearance of more than 30 varieties of canary colors. Among them were lemon yellow, white, red, orange and black plumage colors of various shades.

    However, selection has evolved not only in the color direction. The British, for example, paid more attention to the shape, size and proportions of the bird’s body, as well as the structure of its plumage. The result of their work was decorative breeds of canaries with tufts, scallops, pompoms, etc. They bred humpbacked and giant canaries, as well as birds with disproportionately large legs. English breeds are also distinguished by their original colors, for example, there are orange-red birds with dark green wings.

    Singing canaries

    German amateur breeders paid more attention to the singing of canaries. Their work was mainly aimed at fixing hereditary traits associated with singing abilities. They developed a special system for teaching birds to sing with the help of special organs. It is the German canary breeders who have the honor of creating the famous Harz canary roller, whose tune is very low and slightly hoarse, reminiscent of the sound of pipes.

    German canary breeders kept their art of teaching birds to sing a secret, passing it down from generation to generation.

    Birds began to be exported from Western Europe to other countries: Turkey, China, Japan, North and South America, Australia, New Zealand and Russia. Very soon the little bird conquered the whole world.

    Canaries were kept both in luxurious mansions and in simple houses. The workers found solace and rest by taking care of the birds and enjoying their wonderful singing. Canaries were kept in hairdressing salons, offices, shops, ateliers, and taverns. The miners took them with them to the mines, using their special sensitivity to gas, thanks to which the canaries could give early warning of the danger of an explosion and save human lives.

    World Wars of the XX century. had a negative impact on canary farming. Many birds were destroyed, some species are irretrievably lost. However, after the end of the war, canary breeders with redoubled zeal began to breed their favorite birds. Currently, canaries are increasingly expanding their popularity.

    Birds are used not only by amateurs, but also by ornithologists studying zoopsychology and physiology of animals and birds. Canaries with fine sensitivity are used in chemical laboratories.

    Much attention is also paid to the study of canary singing. When comparing the spectrogram of the singing of wild and domestic birds, the influence of domestication on vocal abilities, the characteristics of the inheritance of knees of songs, the hearing threshold in various breeds, etc. are revealed.

    Modern selection in canary breeding has many directions. Birds of numerous colors have been bred, as well as with a different structure of plumage (curly, crested canaries), physique (humpback canaries).

    Breeding work continues. There are all new breeds of canaries. New systems for teaching singing are being developed, new tunes are being composed. Among modern canaries, no one has preserved the original song of wild relatives. In general, the singing of birds has been greatly improved. Thanks to amateurs who worked with birds, their song became much longer and more varied than that of wild canaries.

    In Russia, where they were brought from Germany, canaries appeared only in the 17th-18th centuries. Perhaps the reason for such a late appearance of canaries in our country was the climate too harsh for a tropical bird. However, over time, the problem of acclimatization was solved, and the canary took a strong place in the life of the Russian people.

    In 1850 literature in Russian on caring for canaries was published. This marked the beginning of canary breeding in Russia. These birds have become especially popular with ordinary people – workers, peasants, artisans, as well as merchants. In some counties and villages, canary breeding was the main income-generating activity. These places included some villages in the Nizhny Novgorod, Tula, Smolensk, Kaluga, Bryansk, Ivanovo and Moscow regions. The most famous canary factories were in the village of Pavlovo in the Nizhny Novgorod province, in the Kaluga region and in the small county towns of the Bryansk region – Starodub, Surazh and Novozybkov.

    Breeders sold hundreds and thousands of canaries at such popular fairs as Nizhny Novgorod, Kaluga, Smolensk and others. Many birds were bought by visiting merchants from Iran, Central Asia and Transcaucasia.

    Russian canary breeders successfully used the experience of European colleagues in their business. However, when teaching canaries to sing, the beautiful knees of birds living in Russia, such as tits, waders, and buntings, have already been used. Canaries began to instill new tunes that differ from European ones.

    For training, Russian canary breeders used not only organ pipes, but also all kinds of pipes and other instruments suitable for this, and mainly the voices of natural singers, who were specially caught and tamed for this purpose.

    After some time, the singing of canaries brought to Russia began to differ significantly from the singing of European birds. In addition, Russian singers began to pass on their vocal skills by inheritance. Thus, a completely new breed appeared – the Russian singing canary of oatmeal tune, which has a sonorous gentle voice.

    The first canary fanciers’ society in Russia was called the Imperial Russian Society. Grand Duke Peter Nikolaevich himself was his patron. Under the auspices of this society, 2 times a year, competitions were held for singing oatmeal canaries. However, birds of other tunes could also participate in the competition, for example, those reproducing Mozart’s melodies. By 1914, several such competitions had already been held.

    Emperor Nicholas II himself greatly appreciated the singing of canaries. Especially for him, the birds of the famous canary breeder from Pavlov-on-Oka I. N. Gorshkov were delivered, who was awarded the icon of the Mother of God for this.

    Such famous people as Turgenev, Bunin and Chaliapin were very fond of listening to canaries.

    Bird performances were judged by qualified experts. The winners received medals. Records of that time indicate that the cost of one kenar participating in such competitions was higher than the cost of a good cavalry horse.

    The value of a canary also depended on its place of origin. For example, the most expensive birds were from Pavlov-on-Oka, Ivanovo, Moscow and Tula, where the best canary breeding centers in the country were located.

    In addition, the features of the structure of the song, which had various names according to the names of their creators, were evaluated in birds – Gorshkov, Ryabov, Goremykin, Muzlan, Shelyadov, Ship, etc.

    The Revolution and the Great Patriotic War stopped the development of Russian canary breeding. However, interest in songbirds did not disappear. Competitions continued to be held in the USSR, to which canary lovers from different republics of the country came. Despite the negative attitude of the Soviet authorities towards canaries as a relic of the bourgeois way of life, thousands of people gathered at canary singing competitions. There were so many performances that they took several days. The All-Union Congress of Canary Breeders was even held at VDNKh.

    Canary group

    In the 80s. XX century Red canaries were brought to Russia, which breeders obtained by crossing canaries with the Colombian siskin. The new breed gained great popularity in the USSR. Many domestic canary breeders began to cross their own birds with new reds in order to increase the sales of their offspring. However, such birds are completely incapable of inheriting the singing abilities of Russian kenars. Therefore, lovers of canary singing abandoned red birds, returning to green, yellow and white colors.

    During perestroika, Russian canary breeding experienced another crisis. With the collapse of the USSR, many connections between amateurs were lost. Fewer and fewer participants began to come to the competitions. In addition, the number of pensioners, who represent the bulk of the canary breeders, has sharply decreased.

    Competitions held in Moscow have thinned considerably. Currently, no more than 30-35 birds are exhibited on them. The main reasons are the high cost of intercity trips and the laboriousness of preparing birds for competitions. There are not so many people who know how to prepare birds at the present time. And mostly they are pensioners, who, due to the lack of interest among today’s youth, often take with them the secrets of raising and training canaries.

    It should be noted that for many years in Russia, radio and television journalists were not allowed to participate in canary competitions, who could record birdsong on tape, which would enable other amateurs to use the soundtrack to teach their pets. Thus, the ownership of canary songs was very tightly guarded, as a result of which canary breeding in Russia almost ceased to develop. The owners tend to sell their singers for a lot of money into private hands, and the birds become unavailable. It often happens that the song of the kenar itself changes after the bird passes to another owner.

    This situation in Russia will probably remain until the law on copyright protection of canary breeders comes into force. Foreign forms of such a law are not very suitable for Russia, as they require a large financial outlay on the part of the owner of the bird, while at the same time not reducing the risk of the theft of the song.

    The preservation of the song of the Russian canary is currently a very urgent problem. After all, the Russian breed can be ranked among the cultural values ​​of the country. It appeared much earlier, for example, the Oryol trotter or the Russian canine greyhound. But at this time the breed is on the verge of extinction. Russian canary breeding lacks the support of charitable organizations.

    2. Related species

    Before talking about the canary, it would not be superfluous to provide general information about its closest relatives. Many of them are well known to us since childhood. For example, a relative of the canary is the canary finch, which also lives in Russia.

    The family of finches is very numerous. It includes 122 species, of which about 33 species nest in Russia. These are finches, goldfinches, linnets, tap dances, siskins, greenfinches, crossbills, lentils, bullfinches, grosbeaks, finches, smurfs, bramblings, repolovs and others, including canaries.

    The most common species of birds that are brought to Europe from other countries, and from there to Russia, are the Mozambican and gray finches. In addition, local bird species are very popular – the European canary finch and the red-capped finch.

    All of the above birds are very close relatives, due to which they are used for crossing with canaries, getting very interesting breeds – hybrids.

    Finches (Serinus serinus)

    This bird is the closest relative of the canary.

    Finches do not exceed 11–12 cm in length. Birds have grey-green plumage. Males are distinguished by a bright yellow chest.

    The bird is native to the Atlas Mountains in Africa. From there at the end of the 19th century. the finch began to spread to the northern regions.

    Reel

    The reel’s singing is very high, consisting of many iridescent trills.

    Birds usually settle in dense coniferous forests, where they build their nests. However, they can also live in open areas where there are small groups of trees, in parks and on the edges of forests, if the surrounding greenery provides sufficient food for the birds.

    Mozambique finch (Serinus mozambicus)

    This is a small bird 12–13 cm long from the end of the beak to the end of the tail. The upper part of the body has a greenish-brown plumage, and the lower part is bright yellow, lemon. The female has a paler color, dark spots stand out on her throat, forming, as it were, a necklace around the neck. The song of males is distinguished by a hot temperament and sonorous trills, as well as sounds similar to the sound of a flute.

    Gray Finches (Serinus leucopygius)

    This bird is about the size of a siskin. The back and wings are covered with brown plumage with light brown edges.

    The underparts of the birds are white with a grayish tinge. On the head, chest and sides there are darkish specks.

    Gray finches

    Males have a strong and sonorous voice, the songs are very beautiful.

    The well-known Czechoslovakian ornithologist Z. Veger offered the following description of the gray finch: “It is amazing how such a small bird can extract from its neck a loud continuous cascade of various melodies similar to the song of a lark for a whole day.

    Gray Finch (Ochrospiza leucopygia)

    This bird lives in Africa where it is very popular. Despite the unremarkable appearance, this reel has an unusual voice. Male and female are very similar.

    When using males to mate with other breeds, one genetic feature was found: the offspring always inherit the dominant white-green color. You never get a solid color, no matter what color the female was.

    Part of the plumage of the hybrid young must have a delicate pastel shade.

    However, the loss of color is compensated by a modification towards greater perfection of his singing.

    Silver Lizard Canary

    This bird is distinguished by rather dull plumage with a yellow background. Lizard breeds were bred in France as early as the 16th century. The Huguenots, who fled to England after the bloody St. Bartholomew’s Night (1552), took the lizard birds with them. There they were called “common french canari” for a very long time – a simple French canary.

    In the 20th century this breed became very rare, and by the end of the Second World War, it was generally considered extinct. However, English amateurs with great zeal set to restoring the breed and were successful.

    In Europe, work was also intensively carried out to create a breeding base for the lizard canary.

    European Canary Finch (Serinus serinus L.)

    This bird lives in Russia. In winter, its plumage is grayish-brown with dark longitudinal stripes on the back and wings, and greenish-yellow on the abdomen and flanks. In spring, the plumage of the finch is updated. The plumage on the forehead, neck, chest and abdomen, as well as near the eyes, becomes bright yellow, lemon.

    The plumage of European canary finches becomes brighter in spring due to the dull tips of the feathers being worn down.

    Females and young birds have duller plumage than males. The yellow color is shaded.

    The song of European finches consists of fast trills, which makes it similar to the chirping of cicadas.

    A hot and sunny start to the week is forecast in the Canary Islands –

    2/7/22, 9:24 AM

    By Canarian Weekly

    National

    According to the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), this week will start in the Canary Islands just as it ended with clear skies, a light haze, higher temperatures in inland areas, and moderate to strong winds from a northeasterly direction.

    Sea conditions will remain very much the same with force 5 or 6 winds causing a strong swell in the north and northwest of the islands, with waves of 1 to 2 metres reaching 3 metres in places, so caution is still advised when going in the sea, as is checking the colour of the flag on the beach. Sunset this evening will be at 6.51pm.

    Today’s weather forecast for the Canary Islands:
    TENERIFE (South):
    General: Mostly clear and sunny with some clouds this afternoon.
    Humidity: 61%
    Precipitation: 2% – no rain forecast.
    Wind: Strong 35km/h from the northeast
    Temperatures: Maximum 24°C and minimum 18°C.

    GRAN CANARIA (South):
    General: Clear and sunny.
    Humidity: 49%
    Precipitation: 1% – no rain forecast.
    Wind: Light, 18km/h from the northeast
    Temperatures: Maximum 27°C and minimum 21°C.

    LANZAROTE:
    General: Clear and sunny.
    Humidity: 83%
    Precipitation: 4% – no rain forecast.
    Wind: Moderate, 37km/h from the east.
    Temperatures: Maximum 21°C and minimum 17°C.

    FUERTEVENTURA:
    General: Cloudy and hazy with some sunny spells.
    Humidity: 75%

    Best Winter Sun Destinations For 2022 – Travel

    Warm up with these brilliant ideas for winter holidays, from Caribbean beaches to Indian Ocean islands
    When the days draw in, you might find yourself pining for sunnier climes and our favourite winter sun destinations are here to help you plan your escape during the UK‘s coldest months. Whether you’re looking for inspiration to start the year on a high or you’re an early bird thinking of next winter, you’ve come to the right place as we’ve selected the very best places to enjoy a spot of winter sun.
    Perhaps a last-minute January holiday to Barbados or a sun-kissed Christmas break in the Canaries takes your fancy. Well, these winter sun destinations will have you topping up your vitamin D in no time.
    From short-haul European islands where the weather remains mild during the winter months, to the heavenly sands of long-haul beach locations that are best experienced between November and March, you’ll want to keep reading for the places to soak up the warmest temperatures.
    Check out the best winter sun destinations for 2022. And don’t forget to check the latest advice from the Foreign Office before booking a trip during Covid-19.
    Madeira’s climate is agreeable year-round – so much so that it’s fondly described as the ‘Eternal Spring’. Nevertheless, winter is a particularly good time to visit as the island becomes less crowded and the price of accommodation drops. The scenery on this Portuguese island is incredible, and the best way to experience it is to go hiking among the subtropical forests, taking in small villages and waterfalls along the way. On the coast, look out for the species of dolphin and whale that visit in winter.
    Where to stay: Love golf? The PortoBay Serra Golf is right by the 27-hole Santo da Serra course, and is housed in a whimsical building that dates back to the 1920s. Alternatively, organise activities such as snorkelling and fishing through Belvedere Boutique, where you can enjoy a glass of Madeira wine as you admire the view of the sea from the floor-to-ceiling windows of the colourful apartments.
    GH’S BEST HOTELS IN MADEIRA
    Once a stop on the Spice Route, Mauritius has been influenced by the French, African, Indian and Chinese cultures. This means that the food is brilliantly varied, with curries, dim sum and croissants all waiting to be tried in waterside restaurants and cafes across the island. What’s more, fresh ingredients abound, and you’ll find yourself winding past tea and sugar cane plantations, walking through fragrant markets piled high with pineapples, and wandering along fields of bananas as you explore the island.
    Where to stay: Embrace Mauritius’ great outdoors at the Bubble Lodge Bois Chéri Plantation, where glass domes make for a quirky yet sophisticated place to stay among the tea leaves. Alternatively, the child-friendly Zilwa Attitude on the island’s north coast offers an impressive array of activities, with sunrise pirogue trips, an aqua gym, tai chi lessons and pétanque.
    BROWSE HOTELS IN MAURITIUS
    Less crowded than Dubai, but still offering sleek shopping malls, desert safaris and luxurious places to stay, Abu Dhabi is a superb Middle Eastern alternative. There’s plenty to keep you busy: the last race of the Formula 1 calendar takes place here each November; Warner Bros World is a great stop for those travelling with children; and there’s art and culture at the Louvre Abu Dhabi. Dry, sunny days make winter the best time to visit Abu Dhabi, as in summer the emirate state’s temperatures rise to a stifling 40C or more.
    Where to stay: For its eye-catching design alone, the Bab Al Qasr Hotel is worth staying in. Add a location right on the beach, spacious rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, and well-equipped kitchens, plus a spa and restaurant, and you’ll have everything you need for a stress-free stay in Abu Dhabi.
    BROWSE HOTELS IN ABU DHABI
    While not scorching hot, in winter the Algarve is one of the warmest places in Europe. And the great weather isn’t the only reason to visit Portugal’s southern region: the beaches are particularly picturesque, with their golden sand backed by limestone cliffs. Some of the best are Marinha Beach, Praia da Rocha and Praia do Camilo. As for where to make your base, choose Tavira for its whitewashed homes and medieval castle, Silves for its terracotta-roofed homes and the Moorish Silves Castle, and Vilamoura for teeing off in the winter sun – the Portuguese region has an impressive 31 golf courses – and luxury accommodation.
    Where to stay: Stay in the delightful Azul Sul guesthouse in Tavira, to enjoy Portuguese wine in the pretty, sun-filled courtyard and walk to local restaurants. For a more lavish option, the Monte Rei Golf & Country Club offers understated elegance, the Michelin-starred Vistas Restaurant, and access to the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course.
    BROWSE HOTELS IN THE ALGARVE
    Picture an island paradise, and it would look a lot like Barbados. And with its palm-fringed beaches, flavoursome Bajan cuisine, and relaxed atmosphere, it’s one of the best winter destinations for a chilled-out holiday. Luckily, from December to April, the weather in Barbados is dry and sunny, hovering around 30C, making lying back on a sun lounger with a rum cocktail in hand even more tempting.
    Where to stay: Check into the cheerful self-catered apartments at Legend Garden Condos, which are surrounded by a 350-year-old plantation, with patios and a pool among the lush vegetation. Or go all out with a suite at the pink hotel Cobblers Cove, which lies right on the beachfront and serves fantastic food – some of the best on the island – at its Camelot restaurant.
    BROWSE HOTELS IN BARBADOS
    With its palm-lined boulevards, slick high rises, vibrant neighbourhoods, tropical climate and famous beaches, Miami has an irresistible allure. As you’d expect, there’s a rich arts and cultural scene, with museums and modern art galleries to keep you busy. And you’ll eat well too, with a diverse food scene that takes in cuisines from all over the world. As if that wasn’t enough, the 35 miles of beach will give you plenty of space to chill out away from the throngs in the busiest areas.
    Where to stay: Feel like you’re in the heart of the action as you laze in the poolside cabanas at the SLS Lux Brickell, featuring sumptuous rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking downtown Miami. In a Beaux Arts building that dates back to 1925, the Eurostars Langford is a smart hotel, with parking and a rooftop bar.
    BROWSE HOTELS IN MIAMI
    Sun, sea and good times are on the menu in Tenerife, where colourful beach bars spill out onto sandy beaches. But away from the tourist hotspots of this Canary Island, you’ll also find wonderful scenery in the interior, in the Parque Nacional del Teide’s pine forests, which surround the highest mountain in Spain, Mount Teide – take the cable car up for the best view on the island. Elsewhere, historic towns such as La Orotava and Puerto de la Cruz abound with delicious Spanish and seafood restaurants.
    Where to stay: Hotel Alhambra in La Oratova’s Old Town is housed in a charming mansion and features colourful tiled bathrooms, a courtyard swimming pool, a sauna and communal areas to relax in. Alternatively, within the UNESCO-listed valley of Santiago del Teide, try La Casona del Patio, with its terracotta-tiled roofs, gabled wooden ceilings and restaurants serving traditional cuisine.
    BROWSE HOTELS IN TENERIFE
    The paradisiacal Maldives is the place to go for an idyllic island retreat. The shallow, clear waters that surround each of the coral islands in the archipelago are rich in sea life, with clownfish and rays visible near the shore. Take a boat out to spot dolphins and manta rays, or simply snorkel leisurely around your island, looking out for turtles and eagle rays. No matter how you choose to spend your time, the islands’ all-inclusive resorts make it easy to completely unwind.
    Where to stay: In the UNESCO-protected Baa Atoll, enjoy good food and great value at Reethi Beach Resort, where you can choose from villas that open out directly onto the sand and overwater villas on stilts. In the same atoll, relax in the overwater spa, take a sunset cruise, go wine tasting, or enjoy a stargazing dinner at the Anantara Kihavah – that’s if you can tear yourselves away from the luxurious overwater villas.
    BROWSE HOTELS IN THE MALDIVES
    Thanks to its strategic position in the Mediterranean Sea, Malta has been ruled by Romans, Moors, French and British over the centuries, which has given it a wealth of historic sites and influences. Add to these magnificent Baroque cathedrals, stunning rock formations, fascinating museums and ancient ruins, and you’ll find that the world’s 10th-smallest country punches far above its weight. With highs of 17C in winter, the island is ideal for a mild weather getaway close to home.
    Where to stay: Housed in a tastefully restored 17th-century palazzo, the boutique Domus Zamittello, with its classical furniture and furnishings, is ideally located for taking advantage of Valletta’s cathedrals, squares and gardens. Also in Valletta, and with a pool that overlooks the harbour, the glamorous Phoenicia Hotel gives guests five-star luxury and is the perfect spot to enjoy fancy afternoon tea.
    GH’S BEST HOTELS IN MALTA
    On a list filled with destinations that are blessed with picture-perfect beaches, those of the Seychelles still manage to stand out. Here, lush greenery undulates down from the archipelago’s mountains, leading to bays of soft, white sand that curve onto the crystal-clear Indian Ocean. The north-west trade winds between December and January cool the island’s temperature to a comfortable 27 or 28C.
    Where to stay: From the apartments at Treasure Island Retreat on Praslin, which have fully equipped kitchens and access to a barbecue, you can step right out onto the beach and walk to local restaurants. To really get away from it all, the Denis Private Island Seychelles feels truly remote, with a shallow lagoon where you can spot turtles, lots of birdlife, and nature tours, plus a restaurant serving food made from produce grown on the island.

    • Damien driving hard and making gains on fleet following return to Les Sables d’Olonne.
    • Elliott Smith mast collar problems, many leaks and builds cockpit dodger under way.


    There has been plenty of drama as boats and sailors had their first shake-down in the Bay of Biscay a steadfast Pat Lawless (IRL) leading the way, Ertan Beskardes (UK) had an electrical short and later knocked himself out falling into the cockpit, Guy deBoer (USA) got seasick for the first time and lost all radio contact, race-favourite Damien Guillou (FR) was headed back to Les Sables d’Olonne with a broken windvane, unsure he could make the start line in time and Edward Walentynowicz (CAN) decided to retire for the race, pondering another participation in 2026.


    But what change a week makes!

    Simon Curwen (UK) and Tapio Lehtinen (FIN) are now in a solid lead of the fleet, sailing close by and emulating each other into high daily mileage, Pat Lawless (Ireland),who made a fantastic start, got lost on his East option, letting the leaders escape, and allowing the western group of Abhilash Tomy (IND), Guy deBoer (USA) and Kirsten Neuschäfer (SA) to close in as the routes are converging 100 miles from the Lanzarote gate.


    Guy deBoer, who has been breaking blocks on a steady basis since the start, has narrowly avoided a collision with a fishing boat by 5 metres, as he tells in last Wednesday’s dramatic satellite phone call available on the GGR SOUNDCLOUD. Early last week investigating a strange noise while climbing out of the companionway, he was shocked to find a large green fishing boat dead ahead and rushed on the helm, cutting his leg in the process but avoiding collision by just 15ft. The captain was screaming from the bridge, unable to alter course. Guy then sailed straight across the towed fishing net fortunately not hooking up! During the confused seas of the first week he was thrown across the cabin and damaged his AIS detector alarm, so it did not respond. For some reason the fishing boat did not see his AIS transponder, nor call him on the VHF.


    Before Edward Walentynowicz retirement, he was giving weatherfax reports to the fleet. Guy whose leg is healing well, has now become the official weatherman for the fleet, sharing his Weatherwax info on the regular HF Radio buddy chats.

    Elliott Smith (USA) reports an issue with his through deck mast collar packing, damaged in the first week allowing movement of his mast. He knows he must somehow repair it well before the grinding South Atlantic trades forward of the beam. He was happy about his companionway dodger built in the past few days and suggests it will help keep the spray out but has a constant leak from his hull deck rub rail he is trying to solve.


    Unfazed by her average start and coming unscathed out of Biscay, Kirsten Neuschäfer has been posting impressive high average speeds, catching up, and now casting away from the chase group. It is clear that Minnehaha her Cape George 36 is quick, but Kirsten knows how to get her going: gennaker up and helms herself as much as she can to make up for lost ground. She is posting a spectacular come back in the forefront, as is Guy deBoer who is power reaching under an asymmetric spinnaker happy with the speed potential.

    Kirsten’s Cape George 36 and Guy deBoer’s Tashiba 36 are similar: maximum hull length, long waterline, heavy displacement and generous cutter rigged sail plan make for slightly higher speeds than their counterparts, although Abhilash Tomy’s Rustler 36 -a lighter, less powerful yacht perceived by many as having the best all-round performance is still holding them off, but until when? The Rustler 36 may not be the fastest boat in the fleet as many have believed since Jean-Luc Van Den Heede’s win in the 2018 GGR. Pat’s Saga 36 who showed great potential in the strong winds of the first week, seems less at ease in the current lighter winds. In front, Tapio’s Gaia 36 with fine entry, high ballast ratio, deep draft and low freeboard is shining through and through in all weathers and points of sail, whereas Simon Curwen’s Biscay 36 still manages to hold him off.

    Damien Guillou (FR), also on a Rustler 36, is working hard on his comeback. Back in Les Sables d’Olonne with a broken wind vane bracket axle, he had Vincent Riou and Jacques Fort reinforcing the support bracket, switching the 10mm bolt for 12mm, adding an extra bracket for strength, before leaving 6 days after the fleet. Since then, he has sailed through unstable winds out of Biscay and has been consistently posting daily averages in the top of the fleet. His seven seasons racing Solitaire du Figaro are certainly coming handy!


    Most importantly, all boats are now out of Biscay. None of them has had meaningful interactions with orcas, despite an early fright for Elliott Smith (USA), two Orcas visited his boat but did not bite. Most sailors stopped hurting themselves except for Guy Waites (UK) who had a “disagreement” between Sagarmatha’s boom and his head!

    All skippers are finally enjoying some time off the wind with a decent sea state, rising temperatures and barometers, posting good speeds on a straight line to Lanzarote. The leaders are expected into the Rubicon Marina film drop at 2000hrs UTC today FRIDAY 26th with the first 10 sailors expected through in the first 30 hours.

    Each sailor must approach the Lanzarote film drop buoy 300 metres south of Rubicon Marina with a reefed mainsail. When abeam they drop all headsails and sail slowly for 20 minutes passing over films and letters before hoisting full sail to continue the race. Don, Jane and Aïda will stream live videos interviews in French and English on Facebook, Rob will shoot and cut videos for news releases and Nora will update pictures of the sailors as they drop their video footage of their first two weeks at sea and share their first taste of the GGR adventure. For many of them it will be the first chance to find out their position in the fleet!


    Departing the film drop, sailors will face a wind hole forming Saturday between the Azores and Lisbon. It is set to gradually come down over the Canaries on Sunday and stay there until late Monday. This may create a first weather gate between the leaders and the ones in pursuit, followed by the doldrums on their way to the next mark: Trindade island in Brazil.


    The skippers, in addition to their daily tweets, and weekly recorded safety calls to race control will be able to share their stories in real time with the beginning of the weekly 20-minutes exclusive sat phone interviews to accredited media starting on week 4 of the race.

      famous Turkish league players – META

      Football
      18:10 – 21 September 2022

      We tell you who to watch in Turkey

      While the football community is discussing the creation of a European Super League, the Turkish Super League is moving into action. Turkish clubs signed many quality players during the summer transfer window. Not everyone believed that such famous football players would be in this championship. And some of them have been performing in Turkey for more than a year.

      Next, we will tell you which of the famous players to watch in the Turkish Super League.

      Mauro Icardi (Galatasaray)

      Galatasaray has always been famous for its ability to get quality and sometimes star players. Most recently, Radamel Falcao flew to Istanbul. Now it’s Mauro Icardi’s turn. The Lions have loaned the 29-year-old striker from PSG for one season. The Parisians wanted to get rid of the football player so much that they even agreed to pay most of his salary. For Galatasaray and Icardi himself, this can be considered a positive thing. The Argentine will be able to restart his career in Turkey, and the Lions have got a quality striker on favorable terms.

      Twitter Galatasaray. Mauro Icardi

      Juan Mata (Galatasaray)

      Galatasaray was not limited to one Icardi. In September, the Lions signed Juan Mata on a free transfer. The parties entered into an agreement under the 1+1 scheme. The Spaniard went to the Turkish club for free after leaving Manchester United. For Galatasaray, the 34-year-old midfielder will be a good reinforcement, despite his age. Mata hasn’t played much lately, but his qualities have remained with him. Yes, and the player himself must pull the Super League after the Premier League.

      Dries Mertens (Galatasaray)

      Another star player went to Galatasaray for free. In August, the Lions signed Napoli’s all-time leading scorer, Dries Mertens, on a free transfer. The Neapolitans wanted to keep the 35-year-old striker, but he did not accept their offer. The football player signed an agreement with the Turkish club under the 1 + 1 scheme. Mertens was expected to return to Belgium, but he decided to go to Turkey. So far, he has 300 minutes in the Super League without effective action, but goals for such an experienced striker are only a matter of time.

      Mishi Batshuayi (Fenerbahce)

      Wherever Batshuayi has played throughout his career. And he’s not even 30 yet. In the summer of 2016, the Belgian became a Chelsea player. After that, he managed to play on loan for Borussia Dortmund, Valencia, Crystal Palace and Besiktas. The next stop for the 28-year-old midfielder was Fenerbahce. With the “canaries” Batshuayi has already signed a full-fledged contract under the 2 + 1 scheme. Chelsea received 3.5 million euros for the player. The Belgian is well acquainted with the Turkish Super League, so there should be no problems with adaptation. Although so far he has only 2 matches in the Europa League and 1 goal.

      Mesut Ozil (Istanbul Basaksehir)

      Ozil has been performing in Turkey for several years now. In January 2021, Mesut left Arsenal and joined Fenerbahce on a free transfer. At first, the parties were satisfied with the cooperation. The club did not even pay the player anything in the first six months. But at the end of last season, Ozil was suspended from the team. No one gave a reason for this decision. According to rumors, it all started because of a conflict with a teammate. Be that as it may, in the offseason, the 33-year-old midfielder became a player in Istanbul, where he moved as a free agent. The German had offers from other countries, but he decided to stay in Turkey.

      Lucas Torreira (Galatasaray)

      Twitter Galatasaray. Lucas Torreira

      And again Galatasaray. Another notorious player joined the ranks of the team in the offseason. Lucas failed at Arsenal. As a player for the Gunners, Torreira played for Atlético and Fiorentina on loan. The Uruguayan wanted to stay in Florence, but the “violets” could not agree with the “gunners” on a full-fledged transfer. As a result, the 26-year-old midfielder went to Galatasaray – immediately on a permanent basis. The Lions paid 6 million euros for the football player and signed a contract with him for 4 years. Torreira gets enough playing time, starts regularly in Super League matches, so he should be pleased with the change of club.

      Dele Alli (Besiktas)

      With the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Tottenham, things have gone downhill for Dele Alli. The situation did not improve with other coaches. In January, the Englishman left Spurs and moved to Everton on a free transfer. But even there he did little. In August, the toffees sent the 26-year-old midfielder to Besiktas on loan. Dele Alli’s career has been seriously stalled, but he has time to restart it. Whether Turkey is a suitable option for this, time will tell. So far, the player has 2 matches in the Super League and 1 goal.

      Marek Gamšik (Trabzonspor)

      Hamšik is not remembered as often now compared to his days when he played for Napoli.

    Corralejo Windsurf Holidays

    Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands, although one of the least developed. The Island has some stunning topography including vast sand dunes, huge golden beaches and breathtaking volcanic scenery in the interior. Broadly speaking most of the best beaches are along the East coast, the rugged West coast is more rocky and open to the swell of the Atlantic (great for surfing). The North is where you will find the main tourist resort of Corralejo, in the South East you will find some quieter beach resorts (including the windsurf resorts of Costa Calma and Sotavento). Corralejo, being the main tourist hub of the island, has a lot of amenities in the way of restaurants, bars and shopping. In some areas in central Corralejo it can be a little ’18-30′, but these areas are easily avoided. 

     

    You arrive at the airport in Puerto Rosario and head North to Corralejo (25 minutes), by pre arranged private transfer, or car hire. Generally it is a good idea to have car hire although this is not necessary. Fuerteventura and the Canaries are are great year around windsurf holiday destination within easy reach of the UK (around 3. 5 hours flight), and a lot of other European departure points. This is one of the most wind reliable short-haul windsurf holiday destinations from March to September, but it can also be great in the winter months, just not quite as ‘guaranteed’ wind. 

    A windsurf holiday to Corralejo in Fuerteventura is suitable for all levels and holiday types, including families, singles and couples, of all windsurf abilities. There is a special windsurf lagoon for beginners, a very long and stunning windsurf beach for improvers, plus some small and easy waves if you want it. This really is a great windsurf holiday location to satisfy a wide range of abilities.

    As with all of our location we are meticulous about which accommodation we work with, and will only suggest properties that we have personally inspected and know to be good. In Corralejo we have a superb collection of properties to include a stunning deluxe beach resort, spacious families villas and a ‘cool’ boutique hotel in the centre of town. A Planet windsurf holiday expert can guide you to the best property for your budget and specific requirements should you decide to contact us.

    The Windsurfing At Corralejo

    The main windsurfing beach, and where we have our partner windsurf school in Corralejo, is called Flag Beach. This whole beach, and a large part of the surrounding area, is a nature reserve and is stunningly beautiful. The only structure on the whole beach is the windsurf centre and a small beach bar. In this location the wind generally blows side to side on from the left. At low tide some rocks are exposed in-between sandy areas, at higher tides the whole launch area is sand. Generally there are some small waves along this area, although there are also some great flat water sections. The waves are more prevalent in Spring and Autumn, from May to August the whole windsurf beach becomes quite flat.

    For beginner and early improvers then the windsurf lagoon is the best place. Our partner windsurf centre offer half day trips to the lagoon, which include pick up from your hotel, rental and lessons if needed. This is great fun, a good way to improve your level in a safe and social environment. This is also perfect for families with kids that want to have a go.

    The Wind In Corralejo

    The windiest season in Fuerteventura is in the summer, between April and September, when a big high pressure stays over the Atlantic and a low over the Sahara. However, there is generally wind all year around with it just being less reliable outside of this main wind season. For the winter months it is better to head South, to Costa Calma or Sotavento, where the wind is accelerated and can be very strong even in the winter. 

    The wind in the North of the island, at Corralejo, tends to be lighter (around 20-30 knots) and much more consistent than in the South of the island, where summer wind conditions can get up to 40 knots + regularly. The wind in the South is also cross-off shore and can be quite gusty at times.

    Activities In Corralejo

    Fuerteventura offers a wide types for the non-windsurfer; don’t forget this is a premier holiday destination for many holidaymakers. The key activities are surfing, diving, horse riding, trekking and cycling. Excursions in and around Fuerteventura are popular, especially round Lobos island, mountain biking and surfing the world class breaks.

    • Flat water is essential for speed. Great fun on my 114 xfire and 7.0 loft blade. Gusts up to 30 kn in #matasbay
      First time sailing here, for sure not the last.
      Why i always keep 1.5 mtr cord in my harness? Can save the day, can save ones life.
      Forgot the RDM mast adaptor and the boom was loose. I rolled the cord around the mast and attached the boom over the rope. Fixed:)

    Windsurf School Fuerteventura | Point Break Windsurfing lessons

    START NOW

    Without a shadow of a doubt, the best activity you can do to fully experience two great elements of nature such as water and wind

    Windsurfing is a sport that all outdoor activities lovers should at least try once in their lives

    Why should you choose Point Break as your Fuerteventura Windsurf School?

    It is a simple question, which has many good answers:

    Because once we were exactly like you, and we remember it very well

    We were also beginners, and to get where we are we have already done the path that you will have to follow. And starting from our past experience we have created our teaching method, an effective method, which works, and which has already led many people to become experienced riders.

    Because we are passionate riders

    All the instructors who are part of the Point Break Fuerteventura Windsurf School are madly in love with the ocean, waves, wind and water sports. These are our passions, and this is our lifestyle.

    Because all our instructors are certified by the Federación Canaria de Surf

    They have an in-depth knowledge of all the spots on the island and they use a proven teaching method.

    Because safety comes first, and we never fail to remind ourselves of it during our courses

    Windsurfing is a wonderful sport, adrenaline and fun packed, where everything has to be done in due time. We will follow you in a step by step progression, which will allow you to face each level only when you are ready for it. Rest assured, trust us: the safest method is also the quickest way to learn this sport effectively!

    Because our goal is to make your surfing session unforgettable and to make you passionate about this magnificent sport!

    Precisely for this reason we have renounced the organizational practicality of carrying out our lessons every day at the same time, preferring instead to organize them on the basis of conditions with the aim of taking you every day to the best spot of the day and at the best time of the day.

    Finally, you have to sign up for our surf course because, as carefree as we can be, we don’t really leave anything to chance

    All our instructors follow a methodical and proven teaching based on three fundamental steps:

    • We explain to you what to do and how to do it
    • We show you how to do it
    • We make you practice in total safety

    High level all-inclusive equipment

    Flexibility to swap activities at the last moment

    Many languages spoken

    If you are looking for a Fuerteventura Windsurf School Point Break is the right place for you: we are at your disposal to let you simply have a go at it or to guide you through windsurfing courses for beginners and lessons dedicated to intermediate and advanced levels.

    Our windsurfing courses follow a teaching program that guarantees fun, safety and learning from the first moment. Do not expect to participate in lessons packed with students: we believe that to learn windsurfing you need the full attention of the instructor, and for this reason our groups are formed by a maximum of 4 students so that you get the most out of every minute of tuition.

    All our instructors, are certified VDWS International, and are therefore ready to assist you in a careful and professional way – never forgetting that, even before being a sport, windsurfing must be fun.

    At the end of each course, our windsurfing school will provide you with a certification of the level obtained.

    Taster

    Here we are not talking about a full windsurfing course but an opportunity to try a wonderful sport and test yourself on this reactive board carried by the wind.

    Are you in Fuerteventura and want to add some spice to your holidays? Then our taster formula is certainly for you: we offer 3 hours taster lessons during which you can learn the basics of windsurfing: we will start with a quick theory part and then continue practicing what we have learned on the beach in the water.

    Taster

    Private lessons or in a group (maximun 4 students per instructor)

    At the end of the three hours, you may even decide that windsurfing is not for you, but trust me, this happens very rarely! Most likely you’ll discover a fascinating and exciting world instead, and you’ll wonder why did you wait so long to try this sport.

    If as soon as the Taster is finished you are looking forward to improving your level, you can enroll in our beginner’s course, choosing the days that best suit your needs for lessons to learn how to sail independently!

    You will therefore learn how to prepare your equipment, the basic wind directions and notions, how to lift the sail, the correct body position to avoid injuries and how to find balance on the board.

      3 day windsurf lesson This was my first time windsurfing and everyone from the school helped me with organising/planning of my trip. I had 3 days of lessons and my instructor Paolo was very patient, he explained everything I needed to know from basic wind direction, understand how to balance on the board, repeating multiple times the basics of Jibe and Tack and being on my side in every moment watching on me and giving advise and directions. He is really experienced wind-surfer, very easy going and full of funny jokes. I had the best times learning and enjoying the beautiful island. I will definitely recommend Point Break and Paolo and coming back soon to improve my technique. Thanks everyone, keep in touch! 🤙😉

      Kitesurfing lessons I booked a 4-day kite-surfing course. I’m a beginner and the instructors took me at my own pace, paying attention to safety but also putting emphasis on having fun. I learned lots, building step by step in knowledge and skills and now am keen to get more practice in, using what I learned with them, so that one day I too will sail!
      The organisation and instructors are expert and friendly. and did their utmost to ensure that I had my lessons (which of course are weather dependent). I’d certainly recommend.

      Great experience I just completed a 4-day kite-surfing course at Point Break school in Fuerteventura and left inspired and more experienced. I had exciting time, felt safe and looked-after. Make sure to ask for Stefano as your instructor. . He is a real Pro. I also got myself a pair of cool swimming trunks from their surf shop 🙂 so check out their merch when you are there and have fun.

    • Great surfing lesson! Our instructor Ivo gave very helpful tips and encouragement. We did a warm-up and then incrementally worked our way up to standing. El Cotillo had quite nice gentle waves for beginners and was sandy bottom.
      Definitely the best surf lesson I have ever had 🙂

      So much fun! It was my third time trying to learn how to surf (with different schools) and I have to say that Plinio – the instructor was very good at giving lession on the ground and in the water! Despite of not being too much confident in the water I managed to stand up on the board and to catch the wave, more waves! Plinio constantly had eyes on us, making sure we are all safe and prepred for the waves! The best part apart surfing was relaxed atmosphere in the group and a lots of laugh also thanks to Plinio and his approach to “first time surfers”, who dont know even how to put on the surfing shoes :)))
      Overall experience with Point Break school was very pleasant and professional.
      Thanks guys!

      Windsurfing I took a few windsurfing classes at Point Break in December and was very impressed with both the school and the amazing instructor – Paolo. Would highly recommend! I was completely new to the sport and he taught me a breadth of maneuvers over several hours, giving me his full attention. Thank you so much!

    Overview of Flag Beach Spot (Corralejo)

    Flag Beach Spot is located 2 km from the Corralejo resort in the northern part of Fuerteventura. The beach stretches along the highway, on the other side – the dunes of El Jable (El Jable).
    The Corralejo resort itself, where Flag Beach is located, is very popular among outdoor enthusiasts – there are a lot of young people here, and indeed people of all ages who are fond of windsurfing, kitesurfing and diving. In addition, the conditions only contribute to this. The channel between the islands of Lobos, Lanzarote and the island of Fuerteventura accelerates the trade winds, as a result of which a strong wind is constantly blowing here. All this, along with the excellent water conditions available at the spot, makes Flag Beach one of the best places for windsurfing and kitesurfing in the Canary Islands.
    True place is more suitable for intermediate level and above. Although training is also carried out here – in an organized manner, beginners are taken a little further from Flag Beach to a more suitable place for this.
    Due to its proximity to the coast of Africa, the season here is year-round. The best conditions for windsurfing and kitesurfing are from March to November, when the wind force is at its strongest. The best waves are in winter.

    Beach holidays: Island Spain

    Black beaches of Tenerife, moon landscapes of Lanzarote, party Ibiza, respectable Mallorca – all this is a beautiful island Spain.

    Volcano and butterflies

    Tenerife is the largest island of the Canary archipelago. In its south it is slightly hotter and more sunny than in the north. The north is the ideal place for those who like to relax in the bosom of nature, surrounded by lush greenery. The most famous beach of the island with black volcanic sand is Playa Jardin in Puerto de la Cruz. It stretches along the coast for more than a kilometer. And not far from the capital of the island, the city of Santa Cruz, is Las Teresitas – a beach with golden sand, specially brought from the Sahara.

    From Puerto de la Cruz, you can reach the highest point of the island, Mount Teide. Frozen lava fields and the peak of the volcano itself (3128 m) will amaze even experienced travelers. Also worth a visit is Icod de los Vinos, where wine and liqueurs are produced. At the same time, you can see the oldest dragon tree in Europe – it is already over 2000 years old. By the way, the Butterfly Park Mariposario del Drago is located next door. Children will surely enjoy looking at the palm-sized colorful beauties that flutter freely around and are not at all afraid of people.

    An excellent promenade, colorful houses, palm trees, flowers, cafes hidden in the narrow streets – wandering around Puerto de la Cruz is a pleasure. This is its undoubted advantage. In the southern part – in Playa de las Americas – it is noisy and not so picturesque.

    Tenerife’s two main attractions are Loro Park amusement and nature park and Siam Park water amusement park.

    Lunar landscapes and windsurfing

    East of Tenerife are the islands of Fuerteventura and Lanzarote. You must have seen the desert lunar landscapes of Lanzarote in Pedro Almodovar’s film Broken Embraces. This island is suitable for quiet contemplation and secluded beach doing nothing. The coastline – more than 340 km – is entirely white sandy beaches. The best resorts: in the south – Jandia, in the north – Corralejo. But the island of Fuerteventura, blown through by the winds, is a great place for windsurfers. In addition, the strait between Fuerteventura and Lobos Island is great for diving. In between swims and dives, you can visit the La Lajita cactus park or the village of Betancuria, which is located right in the crater of an extinct volcano.

    Boutiques and eco-trails

    As in Tenerife, the central mountain range divides the island of Gran Canaria into two parts – the dry and sunny south and the humid north. In just a day, walking around the island, you will see the hot desert coast and green valleys, cross the subtropical forest and climb the mountain peaks, which even in summer can be covered with snow.

    Most of the beaches are located in the southern part of the island. The largest resort center – Maspalomas – also includes a picturesque dune beach, stretching for 6 km. Another increasingly popular resort – Meloneras – will especially please connoisseurs of shopping. Its streets abound with designer shops and fashion boutiques. The only “but” of Gran Canaria is the abundance of noisy compatriots on the local beaches, be prepared for this. Gran Canaria will delight those who like to wander through the museum halls. Among the must-see places is the Canario Museum with a large collection of artifacts from the pre-Columbian era, mummies, tools and jewelry of the Guanches – the tribes that once inhabited the Canaries. In addition, the House of Columbus and the Atlantic Center for Contemporary Art in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.


    From May to September it is warm and dry in the Canary Islands. The air temperature does not drop below +27 °C, and the water in the Atlantic Ocean warms up to +23 °C


    Attractions and Blue Flags

    The largest and most popular of all the islands of the Balearic archipelago is, of course, Mallorca. The main flow of tourists rushes to Magaluf. Perhaps this is the most popular resort on the island. Young people do not get out of bars and discos, couples with children – from the attractions of the Western Water Park.

    Quieter places are Santa Ponsa, whose beaches lead in the number of Blue Flags, and Cala de Or, whose bays are fringed with pine forests.

    If you want to live closer to the capital of the island – Palma de Mallorca – choose hotels in Cala Major or Arenal, which are full of good budget “three rubles”. Premium hotels are concentrated mainly in Can Pastilla and, of course, in the luxurious but a little sleepy Palma de Mallorca. Be sure to climb the ramparts of Bellver Castle – from here you can enjoy wonderful views of both the city and the bay. Here, in the capital of the island, is the Cathedral of La Seu, which is considered one of the greatest temples in the world.


    In the summer in the Balearic Islands, the air warms up to +29 °C, but thanks to the sea breeze, the heat is easily tolerated.


    Clubs and dances

    Ibiza is a party paradise. Every fan of dance culture dreams of getting to this island of the Balearic archipelago at least once in his life. It is here that world-famous clubs and bars are located: Space, which regularly takes first place in the list of the best clubs in the world, the giant Privilege, whose dance floor can accommodate up to 10,000 people, Bora Bora, Tahiti Bar. In August, the international party literally registers in them, occasionally moving to the beaches. In the vicinity of the capital of the island (also Ibiza) is the longest beach, Playa d’en Bossa.

    Hottest Greek islands in November

    By Mark Hodson. Sunday Times Travel Writer

    Which is the hottest Greek island to visit in November? A better question is: should you even visit the Greek islands in November?

    The tourist season in Greece usually ends in late October, after half-term week. You can still enjoy a city break in Athens (it’s a lovely time for sightseeing) and you can grab some winter sun on the island of Cyprus (which is not strictly-speaking part of Greece) but you’ll struggle to find a direct flight to the islands. At best, you’ll need to change plans or switch to a ferry in Athens. It’s possible, just not convenient.

    Once you get there, you may find some hotels, bars and restaurants have shut up shop for the winter, particularly on the smaller islands. Which is a shame because Greece is beautiful in November and can still be warm and sunny. If you want an easier winter-sun option, check out the Canary Islands in November. You can also find direct flights to Turkey in November.

    Which Greek islands will be hottest?

    Cyprus

    Average temperature in November: 22ºC
    Hours of daily sunshine: 7
    Flying time from UK: 5 hours

    There’s one island that offers near guaranteed warm weather and long days of sunshine in November, and that’s Cyprus. It’s a longer flight than to most Greek islands, but worth it if you want fine weather. Even the sea is warm enough for a dip in November at 21ºC, while night time temperatures rarely dip below 12ºC. It’s a great time of year for a walking holiday or exploring historical sites.

    Holiday recommendation: check out these villas in Cyprus.

    Karpathos

    Average temperature in November: 21ºC
    Hours of daily sunshine: 6
    Flying time from UK: 6 hours (via Athens)

    Karpathos lies between Rhodes and Crete in the Dodecanese. It’s a long way south and enjoys lovely warm sunny weather in November, particularly the first half of the month when it’s possible to sunbathe on the beaches and swim in the sea. This is a charming island with a rugged interior where you’ll experience the real character and hospitality of the Greek people.

    Where to stay: find the best hotels and apartments in Karpathos.

    Kos

    Average temperature in November: 19ºC
    Hours of daily sunshine: 6
    Flying time from UK: 4 hours

    Kos is one of the most southerly Greek islands, close to the Aegean coast of Turkey, and is among the warmest in November. It’s won’t be hot, but six hours of daily sunshine will feel wonderful, and sea temperature is 20ºC. There’s only a small chance of rain towards the end of the month, but this is a good time of year to discover the markets and historical sites of Kos Town.

    Holiday recommendation: the luxury all-inclusive IKOS Aria is great value but will have closed by November.

    Crete

    Average temperature in November: 20ºC
    Hours of daily sunshine: 6
    Flying time from UK: 4 hours

    Crete is the largest Greek island and has some of the best winter weather. You can be eating lunch under a blazing November sun while gazing up at snow-capped mountains. It’s also a fabulous time for hiking – don’t miss the dramatic Samaria Gorge. Expect 20ºC temperatures, falling to 13ºC at night with a chance of rain on 7-8 days. The sea will be 20ºC, fine for a quick dip.

    Holiday recommendation: these boutique hotels and stylish houses for rent.

    Corfu

    Average temperature in November: 18ºC
    Hours of daily sunshine: 4
    Flying time from UK: 3 hours 15 minutes

    Corfu is further north than most islands and in the Ionian Sea, rather than the Aegean. It’s a little cooler, as a result, and not the warmest destination in November. However, it’s a great time of year to visit monasteries, palaces, museums and churches. Rain is possible, so pack a brolly.

    Holiday recommendation: these villas in north-east Corfu are lovely. Book one for next year!

    Santorini

    Average temperature in November: 19ºC
    Hours of daily sunshine: 5
    Flying time from UK: 4 hours 15 minutes

    Santorini is scorching in summer, and packed with tourists. Visit in November and you’ll appreciate the pretty villages and rugged volcanic countryside. There’s less chance of rain than in Corfu, and the sea temperature is around 19ºC, not freezing.

    Holiday recommendation: Santorini boutique hotels

    Halkidiki

    Average temperature in November: 17ºC
    Hours of daily sunshine: 5
    Flying time from UK: 3 hours 15 minutes to Thessaloniki 

    Halkidiki on the Greek mainland is a wonderful region for exploring. It has excellent sandy beaches, though the sea temperature will be on the chilly side for swimming. Night time temperatures can drop below 10ºC so you’ll need to pack a few layers.

    Holiday recommendation: stay at IKOS Olivia or IKOS Oceania, both good-value luxury all-inclusive resorts.

    15 Best Europe destinations in November of 2022

    Rome, Italy

    • November avg high: 63°F/17°C
    • November avg low: 47°F/8°C
    • November avg precip: 4.4″/11.0cm

    November marks the start of the low season in Rome, but this is a city that is popular all year round so you certainly won’t feel alone. The days are chilly and you might get some rain, but Rome is still a great destination even in the colder months because there is so much to see and do, and much of it is indoors such as the enormous Vatican Museum.

    If this is your first visit to Italy you’ll probably want to head north from Rome and visit Florence and Venice (both mentioned below). But if you have more time you might also consider Sorrento, which is a bit south of Naples. It’s a bit warmer in November and it’s the perfect base for day trips of Naples, Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast and the Isle of Capri.

    As of July 2022, Italy is one of the European countries that has dropped all COVID and vaccination requirements. Hopefully by November of this year things will be even better in Europe, but of course there is a chance that things will be worse so it’s important to pay attention to the news.

    • Good 4-star hotels in November from €84 for two people
    • Hostel dorm beds in November from €14 per person

    Florence, Italy

    • November avg high: 59°F/15°C
    • November avg low: 42°F/6°C
    • November avg precip: 4.4″/11.0cm

    Similar to Rome, Florence is such an amazing destination that it’s worth visiting any time of year. November is chilly and a bit wet, but even more than Rome and Venice, Florence is an indoor destination. This is one of the world’s great capitals for art and you’ll be indoors most of the day even if the weather is nice.

    Florence is smaller than Rome so you can see the most famous sights in only 2 days or so, but you might still want to spend 3 or even 4 nights here because this is the ideal base for day trips to Pisa, Siena, and even the Cinque Terre. There are also several nearby hill towns that are worth a look to experience something uniquely Italian. As the capital and largest city in the famous Tuscany region, Florence is also a great food city. Avoid places with English menus out front for the best quality and value.

    • Good 3-star hotels in November from €87 for two people
    • Good 4-star hotels in November from €117 for two people
    • Hostel dorm beds in November from €19 per person

    Again, if you are coming to Italy for the first time in November you are going to want to spend at least one day and night in Venice even if it’s a bit cool. There is no other city in the world like Venice and the smaller crowds in November will help you feel less like a herd animal.

    The downside to visiting Venice in November is that it’s the peak month for the Acqua Alta, which is the high-tide flooding that the city experiences. It’s still possible to get around and enjoy a Venice visit in November, but it’s also wise to keep track of the Acqua Alta situation and work your schedule around it.

    Similar to Rome and London, Paris is such an amazing city that you are going to want to visit no matter which month you are visiting. Fortunately, Paris still has reasonably mild temperatures in November and not much rainfall. There will be plenty of business travelers around, but tourist numbers are lower so it can be easier to get around and see the top sights.

    As long as you dress properly you can still even enjoy the excellent hop-on, hop-off bus tour of Paris in November. It’s arguably the best city bus tour in Europe and it connects nearly all of the most famous buildings and attractions. It’s included in the Paris Pass, so you might also want to check our review of the Paris Pass.

    Needless to say, in 2022 you’ll want to stay on top of the COVID situation in France as your trip approaches. The country is open to vaccinated visitors (as of July 2022) and hopefully they will be fully open by November. Obviously it’s possible that restrictions could get worse.

    The good news about London in November is that it tends not to rain very hard when it does rain, so you often don’t even need an umbrella. But of course it will be cool every day in November so you will need to bring some outerwear with you. As with a few others on this list, London is such an amazing city that you’ll want to visit no matter the month of your trip.

    London is another example of a mostly indoor city so the weather doesn’t really slow most visitors down. The famous attractions such as the (free) museums and famous cathedrals are welcoming no matter the weather outside. You might even want to look at our London Pass review if you want to see the top attractions in 2 or 3 days.

    As of July 2022, the UK is on the list of European countries that have dropped ALL restrictions and vaccination requirements for incoming visitors. Let’s hope it stays this way through November.

    Barcelona, Spain

    • November avg high: 63°F/17°C
    • November avg low: 47°F/8°C
    • November avg precip: 2. 3″/5.8cm

    Being on the Mediterranean, Barcelona stays warmer than Madrid (see below) during the colder months. So November is still fairly nice and one of the better months to visit partly because the summer months have become so ridiculously crowded here. The main attraction here is the interesting architecture, and you can see all of the most famous buildings on top of the hop-on, hop-off bus tour, which is included with the Barcelona Pass.

    If this is your first time to Spain you are going to want to spend 3 or 4 nights in Barcelona but also then take the high-speed train (in 2.5 hours) to Madrid for 3 or 4 nights there. The cities are very different from each other and both are wonderful for tourists with excellent food and nightlife on top of everything else. November is actually one of the best times to visit Spain, due to the mild weather and smaller crowds.

    Spain is open to vaccinated visitors in 2022 and those who can provide a negative COVID test within 72 hours of entry. Let’s hope that things are even better by November of this year.

    Madrid does get a bit cool in November, but as mentioned above in the Barcelona section you are going to want to come here anyway. Madrid is of course the capital of Spain so this is where you see the Royal Palace and many other official buildings of note, as well as the Prado Museum.

    The high-speed train that connects Madrid and Barcelona is fairly cheap if you book it at least a couple weeks in advance. Spain has a few of its own low-cost airlines, so flights into Madrid are pretty cheap this time of year, although booking early helps here as well.
