Introduction: by Richard Hanman
This was the 8th ‘Bargain Birding Club’ (BBC) trip to the Costa Blanca area around Alicante, and our 4th in the Autumn. Returning BBC regulars were Trevor Hatton and Tim Rea, and we also had the pleasure of welcoming Kathy Gay on her first trip with us. As always, it’s great to buddy up with Bryan Thomas for his excellent local knowledge, wit and banter. Our base was the beachfront Santa Pola Hotel which gave us easy access to local reserve, and easy access to the motorways for trips further away.
A massive thank you to Richard Hanman and ‘Bargain Birding Club’ for the opportunity to co-lead there latest visit to the Costa Blanca area. There were so many highlights to this Bargain Birders visit to Costa Blanca and also some fantastic photo opportunities, see below some of my favourite photographs of their recent visit.
Cheers
