Booted Eagle and Spotted Redshank

Wednesday 19 October

The last morning of the six-day birding trip not only found a passing Spanish Imperial Eagle Aquila adalberti but quickly followed by a resting dark morph Booted Eagle Hieraaelus pennatus that was quite oblivious to we two in the nearby car, I even got out of the car, but also the teasing Azure-winged Magpies Cyanopica cyanus.  Then, as a special bonus, we found the one missing bird I had been looking for the whole long week-end, a winter plumage Spotted Redshank Tringa erythropus.
