In the hills above Mijas

After yesterday's unexpected rains, Ivan and Inger Zink-Nielsen took themselves off up the mountain above Mijas for five hours of birding.  As Ivan says in his email, lots of joy but small bird list.

Sunday 21 April

Five hours in the mountains behind Mijas. Big joy but small birdlist:

Booted Eagle; Kestrel; Swift; Crag Martin; House Martin; Robin; Black Redstart; Black Wheatear; Blackbird; Sardinian Warbler; Pied Flycatcher; Great Tit; Short-toed Treecreeper; Chaffinch; Linnet; Serin; Common Crossbill.
Ivan and Inger
But at least you have recorded Pied Flycatcher for the year which is more than me!   Also, for many of us, Robin out here becomes something of a scarcity between mid-April and September
