Whilst I was taking Jenny to Alicante Airport for her return flight to Bournemouth, Dave and his Arbloeas Birding Group exploring one of their well-known Almeria birding hotspots. Great turn out and good number of species albeit visiting "disturbers" probably prevented more from being seen. By the time Dave had written up his report (below) I had deposited Jenny at the airport and made my way to Elche. Not immediately finding the overnight accommodation I had booked I carried on to El Fondo foe an enjoyable evening 45 minutes and impressed by the large number of both Marbled Duck and Glossy Ibis. Now, instead of collapsing on the bed and dreaming a dram, I suppose I, too, had better get on and write my report.
