Mary’s Blog – El Clot

posted in: Mary's Blog | 0

Day one of a four day trip to Gran Alacant found us in the dry hide where we came across Mark Etheridge. We had a chat and listened to a Great Reed Warbler singing before a Purple Heron flew over the reeds in front of us making me very happy. A few new summer visitors and spring migrants passing through were added to my year list.

Species list – Pallid Swift, Purple Heron, Red Crested Pochard, Coot, Moorhen, Whiskered Tern, Woodpigeon, Swallow, Red Rumped Swallow, House Martin, Pied Flycatcher, Willow Warbler, Great Reed Warbler, Sardinian Warbler, Goldfinch, Hoopoe.
