Wednesday 28 September
For his last weekly outing before heading back to the UK for his "sabbatical," Dave and his Arboleas Birding Group were once again at the Sierra de Maria and, as you might expect, some great birding sightings recorded. Lovely to see such a large following and rewarded by Short-toed Eagle, Kestrels and Griffon Vultures not to mention the larks and Black Wheatear. With Alan in charge for the next couple of months, no doubt Dave and I will enjoy reading about their future adventures. Meanwhile, all being well, as I, too, will be back to relatively nearby Warsash on Southampton Water, perhaps a chance to catch up with Dave and Gilly on "foreign" territory for a little birding and socialising. Although, strictly speaking, now that I have relocated back, perhaps I am already on foreign territory for the next week!
