Alcaucin

Wednesday 27 November

By the time I eventually got away form the local  hospital following my early morning appointment it was gone 11.30 on arrival at the Alcaucin picnic area and all, on the whole, very quiet.  A Black Redstart as I approached my usual car park and in the tall Eucalyptust tree opposite a couple of Crossbill.
Distant Crossbill Piquituerto Comun Loxia curvirostra
A walk through the picnic area itself and up to the top of the track produced Blue Tit and Chaffinch and Robin and Blackbird in the lower levels.  More Crossbills and Chaffinches and eventually a couple of Nuthatch.
The inquisitive Robin Petirrojo Europeo Erithacus rubecula
A Crag Martin flew over the top of the valley and on my way home after just an hour I recorded both Stonechat and White Wagtail driving down towards Alcaucin.  But at least the sun was shining and it was warm despite the good breeze.
