Before putting that in, here in Torremolinos we had a big entry of Common Swifts on 26 March and on 27, in my own garden here, 2 Redstarts, one a smashing male, plus a female Black Redstart but she's been around all winter, and also a Spotted Flycatcher. On 28 March, at the third attempt, I managed to see the 1W Franklin's Gull that has been hanging around La Caleta de Vélez (in the east of the province,one earlier fruitless trip giving a Great White Egret flying along the shore line! I'm not sure if it was a twitch or not as it's only ten minutes from my girlfriend's, more or less on the doorstep. On 29 March, going in towards Málaga, a Honey Buzzard flew in front of the car between Plaza Mayor and Decathlon. Tomorrow, I am down at Tarifa and beyond to La Janda with Ron, as although he has been studying the North Yorkshire Honey Buzzards for over 30 years, he's never seen one in Spain, so we live in hope, especially as a Rüppell's Vulture was seen to fly in today.
And a last bit before I forget. There were 'plenty' of Citril Finches at the Puerto de la Ragua (Almería/Granada border) earlier this week, an elusive Dupont's Lark was heard at Las Almoladeras (Almería). Which is why I am now on with Dave's report if the visit.
