El Hondo fields – Gleb Berloff

posted in: Birders Reports | 0

Another one of these bike rides, starting with a journey to El Hondo Visitor Center, then down to El Molar, and then back. Took photos of a perched Short-toed Eagle at El Hondo, saw a couple of Collared Pratincoles at the Visitor centre, and on the way to El Molar was attended by a completely fearless Great Spotted Cuckoo. Along the way passed a rice field where there was a horde of Cattle Egrets and Glossy Ibis. At El Molar, saw 7 Bee-eaters and also a few people in a car who appeared to recognise me. The recently located Common Cuckoo didn’t show itself.
