Guadalhorce with Ivan and Inger

Back to normal on Wednesday as Ivan and Inger made their way once more down to the Guadalhorce in Malaga.  No stopping this lovey Danish couple when they've got their boots on and bins at the ready!

Wednesday 17 April; Guadalhorce, Malaga

Here is our report with 48 species from our third visit to Guadalhorce.   Fewer birds this time, especially few birds of prey, but more waders.

Mallard; Gadwall; Pochard; Red-crested Pochard; White-headed Duck; Little Grebe; Cormorant; Little Egret; Grey Heron; Flamingo; Kestrel; Peregrine Falcon; Moorhen; Coot; Black-winged Stilt; Little Ringed Plover; Ringed Plover; Kentish Plover; Grey Plover; Sanderling; Dunlin; Curlew Sandpiper; Greenshank; Snipe; Yellow-legged Gull; Rock Dove; Collared Dove; Turtle Dove; Swift; Bee-eater; Crested Lark; Sand Martin; Barn Swallow; House Martin; Yellow Wagtail; Nightingale; Black Redstart; Wheatear; Blackbird; Sardinian Warbler; Reed Warbler; Woodchat Shrike; Jackdaw; Spotless Starling; House Sparrow; Goldfinch; Greenfinch; Serin.

Inger and Ivan

On the other hand, Ivan and Inger, as the water levels begin to drop so, perhaps we might see the return of all those waders that have been missing for the past four or five months.  I certainly hope so.
