It was back to Guadalhorce on Friday morning, arriving well before the heat of the day at around 9.30am. We decided to head first for the eastern section of the reserve, having not done so on our previous visit on Wednesday.
|Violet Dropwing - Is this guy wearing sunglasses?|
|Zitting Cisticolas - Not too much zitting at this time of year!|
|Sanderling - Dee's favourite|
|Audouin's Gull - regular at Guadalhorce|
A stop at the Laguna Escondida before heading off held ♀♂White-headed duck, several Little Grebe and during our stay a single Teal flew in. The walk back to the car produced a dozen or so Greenfinch with several Goldfinch around and a single Serin.
**It's worth noting that if visiting Guadalhorce NEVER park on the rough road areas near the footbridge! Our research did mention several break ins in this area and you are advised to park at the church and walk down! Sadly this was proven first hand when a group of Dutch birders we'd met during our stay parked within this area. As we passed them on the walk back to our car, which was parked at the church, all their suitcases and belongings which they had left inside had been taken!!
