Waders seen at the Guadalhorce


Thursday 8 April

Following on from the report of my visit to the Desembocadura de Guadalhorce, with so many birds photographed I thought it better to simply keep all the waders together as below:

Avocet Recurvirostra avosetta on nest (above) and attending partner (below) - obviously a supporter of either Newcastle or Juventus!


Little Stint Calidris minuta

Little Ringed Plover Charadrius dubius

(Great) Ringed Plover Charadrius hiaticula

Kentish Plover Charadrius alexandrinus

Sanderling 
Three Curlew Sandpiper Calidris ferruginea with Redshank (right)

Redshank Tringa totanus
Common Sandpiper Actitis hypoleucos

And this is why they are all taking shelter in the Viejo Rio!
