Salinas de Marchamalo – Darren Wilson

posted in: Birders Reports | 0

6th April – My usual circumnavigational walk around Salinas de Marchamalo produced this year’s ‘firsts’ for me: 1 Common Cuckoo, 1 Nightingale, 2 Pallid Swifts, 1 Gull-billed Tern and 1 Whiskered Tern amongst the Sandwich Terns. Four Purple Heron in the ditch on the south side and a very showy Subalpine Warbler. Other more usual fayre were 2 Common Sandpiper, 1 Hoopoe, 2 Kestrel, Corn Buntings and good numbers of Avocet and Stilt.

7th April – Also at the salinas a Woodchat Shrike and a Redstart.
