Torrevieja – Gleb Berloff

posted in: Birders Reports | 0

Today’s trip to Torrevieja. Started with Los Balcones, full of loud Monk Parakeets. Encountered a Yellow-collared Lovebird again, perched on an antenna, these must be settling in well. All was supervised by a Booted Eagle. Then, found a group of 8 Iberian Magpies. Very shy, completely unlike what I was expecting. At the lighthouse, saw 10 Razorbill in 2 nice groups, but there was no sign of the Lesser Crested Tern. In all, a fantastic trip, except beware the bus timetable!
