Sunday 6 December
|Gannet Alcatraz Atlantico Morus bassanus
Late walk this morning not leaving here till almost 12.30 and with Jenny walked down to Caleta harbour and back along the shore paseo. A lovely male Black Redstart almost immediately followed by the usual Monk Parakeets and Rock Doves. Approaching the outer harbour wall on our side three Gannets diving very close, too close I would have thought, and once in the marina area, no doubt encouraged by families feeding the fishes, a good number of Black-headed and a few Lesser Black-backed Gulls. Watching over the gulls chasing the fish which in turn were chasing the loaves of bread, a Little Egret whilst a Cormorant was enjoying a little fishing in the middle of all this chaos.
