Mar Menor area – Darren Wilson

posted in: Birders Reports | 0

Had my first Pallid Swift overhead in Torre Pacheco this afternoon. An adult Golden Eagle gave great views north of the road in La Manga Golf Course this morning and at least 6 dolphins were seen hunting the abundant seabass in the bay at Portman this lunchtime. I’m pretty sure they were Bottle-nosed Dolphins. Incidentally, the Seabass had been deliberately released from the local fish farm recently and it seems every man and his dog were trying to fish for them!
