Various sites – David Roe

I had a day out with Jeannet on Thursday in various locations. We missed out on the male Ferruginous Duck at El Clot, Great Spotted Cuckoo at the old monastery and didn’t see a Spotted Eagle at Lo Chicharra/El Hondo. However, the highlights were around 200 Black-tailed Godwits on the east side of the N332, about 100 metres south of the Tamarit Tower at Santa Pola, 10+ Marbled Ducks at El Hondo and 40 Azure-winged Magpies at the usual site near Torrevieja. They were in some low trees below the house with the barking dogs and took off as we approached.
