Birding moment of the day was a Kingfisher

 My friend Trevor is visiting Spain for a week or so, he'd heard that the Great Spotted Eagle has arrived back at the El Hondo area, so we set off in search of the Spotted Eagle.
Well we didn't connect with the Eagle but had a nice morning birding,

Yellow Wagtail

 highlights were
Great White Egret
Booted Eagles
Peregrine Falcon

Lots of Marsh Harriers
80 Great-crested Grebe
10 Yellow Wagtails
Little Owl

Song Thrush
We came across a flooded field which had a few birds on it

Glossy Ibis
Green Sandpipers
Wood Sandpipers
Little Stints

Black Cap

Sky Lark
Lots of Meadow and Water Pipits, White Wagtails and Black Redstarts

I mentioned that there were lots of Kingfishers around and new of a place that was visited on a regular basis, and the moment of the day was the arrival of the Kingfisher, which sat less 12ft from me it was very active and returned several times

have a good day

cheers BT
