Lovely warm sunny day as we discovered that the grown-ups' adventure playground near Marbella was only open at week-ends, I took Jenny and brother-in-law Chris up to Maro so that we could explore a little of the track up into the Sierra Tajeda from near the Maro caves. Lots of calling/singing birds as we parked the car but the bright sunshine and the birds taking advantage of the high tree cover made recognition very difficult. But we did quickly manage Collared Dove, Blackbird, Chaffinch and Chiffchaff. Many tits heard but not seen.
|Male Chaffinch Pinzon Vulgar Fringilla coelebs
|Coal Tit Carbonero Garrapinos Parus ater
Collared Dove, Wood Lark, Robin, Stonechat, Blackbird, Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Long-tailed Tit, Crested Tit, Coal Tit, Great Tit, Chaffinch.
