Tuesday 5 January
Tomorrow being "Kings day" and a national holiday in Spain, my friend Dave Elliott-Binns took his Arbleas Birding Group over to Caba de Gata a day early and so miss the potential crowds. Reading Dave's report. is it not amazing that just seven days difference and almost a completely different set of birds. Lots of birds seen by Dave and company that were not on show to me and yet I managed to actually find all those Dotterel and Trumpeter Finches. If birding is so cyclical, then I think, perhaps, next week might be a good time for me to re-visit the site and see if I can catch up with two the two "hot-shots," Dotterel and Trumpeter Finch, for this year's bird list!
