El Hondo fields – Greta Owen

posted in: Birders Reports | 0

Pallet road this morning, Buzzard, Hoopoe, Song Thrush, Robin, Little Owl, Kestrel and Starlings. At Monastery road, another Little Owl, Stonechat, Buzzard, more Hoopoe, also a lone small dog/puppy which wagged its tail when I spoke to it but scooted off when I tried to get near it. It followed us all the way down and round the corner. Hope it is still alive!! At the end of Monastery road we saw a few Barn Swallows on the overhead wires. PFT produced more Buzzard, Marsh Harrier, Goldfinch, Mistle Thrush, Fan tailed Warbler, Great Tit, Grey Heron and a Cattle Egret sat on a pylon. There were more Kestrels on the wires along by the Salinas and as we were just entering GA a flock of about 14/15 Cranes flew above and over towards El Clot then we lost sight of them
