Here we go again! searching for Tonn, latest satellite data suggests he's in the area around Santa Agueda, San Felipe Neri, and Catral. The problem is we're in the right area, seeing all the wrong birds. But we're out and about eating slabs of yummy chocolate cake and hot tea and biscuits, football banter, and waiting for the big one to fly over, and there's always a chance we could turn up something special?

Time for second breakfast.
On the positive side, we are finding many new sites with good potential as we scour the area, it's going to pay back ten times over with knowledge of where to go, how to get there, and what's there. It reminds me a little of finding and tracking down the site for Trumpetet Finch in the valley of Montnegre, which also took time and effort.
Later on dark clouds gathered and the wind got up with some light showers of rain it wasn't nice on the top of the elevated platform at Santa Aqueda. Having driven back and forth between Santa Aqueda and San Felipe 3 times I was starting to lose the will to live. A flock of Lapwing (100+) all sheltering out of the wind and in amongst 9 Golden Plover, along the Vistabella road. Returning across Santa Pola Salinas in one concentrated group were 12 Great white Egrets and 2 Greys fishing, shame we couldn't stop for a photo.
Who said patience is a virtue? It involves going through suffering at times without getting angry or upset?
It seems to me that is got a bit muddle over time "Who's angry, or upset"
now where that ( bad language ) bird
I haven't mentioned any of the small birds seen today but there's lots and lots
Have a great day
Fingers crossed next time
