11 September, Guadalhorce (and elsewhere)

A visit to the Guadalhorce ponds this morning in the company of Bob Wright, who for reasons beyond his control was up far too early and arrived there whilst it was still virtually far from daylight! However, being such an early bird didn't get him the worm but three Red-throated Nightjars and to add to this record I have just learnt that Antonio Miguel Pérez (the warden) saw three there only a couple of days since. Bob has detailed the rest in his blog http://birdingaxarquia.blogspot.com/- (copy and paste) so I shall not repeat, but I see that he has missed the female Common Redstart and the Melodious Warbler.

Federico was in the Strait to day with Antonio Miguel, Patricia and others and apart from the rain (you, know that stuff that sometimes falls from heaven upon the place/humans beneath) where they had a tremendously good day's birding with lots of Short-toed Eagles, Honey Buzzards and so on. Teo has also told me that today he saw an Eleonora's Falcon over Coín (Malaga), a species which he is a specialist in finding and takes tremendous photos of them too.
