The Clot De Galvany

A Mornings Birding at El Clot with John and Michelle 

There are fewer birds at the Clot today,  No sign of any Widgeon or Fudge Ducks, not even any Marsh Harriers.  It could be these birds have moved on? Or be on one of the other lakes that we have no access to view.  Shoveler and Pochard number are lower.  In good numbers, are Marbled Duck, Gadwall, White-headed Duck, Red-crested Pochard.  

Red-crested Pochard

Black-necked and Little Grebe's almost full summer plumage. An abundance of Sardinian Warblers, showing off from the top of every other bush.

Sardinian Warbler

  The only other thing of note is the Coot population it's always been healthy at the Clot,  but today it's gone mega, I'm not sure where all these birds have come from I'm guessing there on migration Or a partial migration?

Marlbed Duck

Not so many Hirundines  just a few Swallows

Other birds seen Little Bitten, European common Snipe, heard only Penduline Tit, Cetti's Warbler,  Stone Curlew,  Iberian Green Woodpecker.

Water levels are better after last weeks of soaking.

Cheers Bryan
