CBBC Field Trip today was excellent! Lovely weather, good company, great cakes provided by Greta Owen, nice lunch …. Oh and a few good birds too! Highlights were, at El Clot – Wryneck, at Carabassi beach – Red breasted Merganser, Common Scoter, On the Salinas – Spoonbill, Osprey, at the PFT – Booted Eagles, Skylarks, near Vistabella road – Great Spotted Eagle maybe? These birds were seen by me, other birders may have seen a few more.
