Santa Pola area – Malcolm Palmer

posted in: Sightings | 0

Today I did a quick round trip to start my 2019 list off. Not great birding really – too windy and sunny – but did get the traditional bird I avoided all 2018 – a female Merlin, that flew over as I passed the Safari Park. There was an unexpected Wigeon drake at the Clot, and best bird was a winter Whiskered Tern feeding over the Salinas. Otherwise nowt to write home about.
