From a Malaga Visitor

On sending out the reminders for next Thursday's Axarquia Bird Group meet at the Rio Velez, Torre del Mar, I received a lovely response from fellow educationalist Professor Malcolm Mitchell, the Chair of the Physiology and Animal Welfare SRUC in Midlothian, Scotland informing me that whilst he would be unable to be with us this week he had managed to get in a couple of recent birding trips to Spain, both here in Malaga and also in Bilbao whilst at the latter on business.  All being well, Malcolm will be out again to Malaga in August so, hopefully, we will once more be able to meet up for some birding.  In the meantime, Malcolm has forwarded a few photos taken on his recent visits which are published below for readers' pleasure.
