Tomorrow promises rain so I thought, given time, I might be able to shoot up to the picnic area above Alcaucin for thirty minutes on the way home from Torre del Mar. At least then the rain will have something to wash off the car!
|Chiffchaff Mosquitero Comun Phylloscopus collybita at El Rio picnic site|
The Bar El Rio, having just passed a White Wagtail on the track, produced first a Chaffinch followed by a Grey wagtail then a couple of Chiffchaffs but no sign of the Dipper that John and Jenny saw last week. Indeed, looking at the site I cannot imagine why the Dipper would have been there in the first place!
