A few Kestrel, Iberian Grey Shrike, Little Owl and Raptors at the pallet road. One of the raptors made a swoop into a fir tree and after that all we saw were grey feathers floating down, possibly a pigeon! Los of Swallows on the fence and wires at Monastery road, getting ready for the flight back to Africa? A flock of Lapwing flew over heading towards El Pinet. Marsh Harrier, a Black Redstart on one of the buildings at PFT, a pair of Stonchat feeding in a field. A flock of about three hundred Glossy Ibis flew over Lo Chicharro on their way to El Hondo. Six Hoopoe came out of a tree as we passed by and a pair of Booted Eagle were making use of the thermals.
