|Squacco Heron - Can Cuarassa|
I began today (Tuesday) with an early morning visit to Albufereta and the Can Cuarassa, only a 5-minute drive from the villa. There’s a lovely walk that leads to a couple of pools that have been screened with viewing areas and another branch of the Can Cuarassa is a track that leads directly inland. Nightingales and Cettis Warbler are abundant here and this morning the pools produced a couple of Squacco Heron, Common Sandpiper, Wood Sandpiper, Snipe and Little-ringed Plover. While sitting at the viewing area a Great Reed Warbler began singing a few yards away. A short walk inland along the track had Hare, Wheatear, Stonechat, Woodchat Shrike and Whinchat, along with the ever present Zitting Cisticola.
