Carabassi Road and Clot de Galvany

Early start and trending around the historical Rufous-tailed scrub Robin site on the Carabassi Road and just in case the bird has turned up.  After a decent wander around, it's a no show, at this site, incidentally previously this site was a wash with rubbish left by holidaymakers but today it was clear of leftover waste and pristine. I watched today a major clean-up along the road and also lots of concrete blocks being laid along the length of the road. Maybe to stop the camper vans?  Plenty of Spotted Flycatcher there and the odd Turnstone on the beach.

The Clot de Galvany. 

Little Bittern, Squacco Heron, Night Herons, in good numbers. Whiskered Terns, Audouin's Gull, Black-necked Grebe, Great reed Warbler and Reed Warbler seen.

The Surprise of the day was a Penduline Tit.  Marbled Duck seems to be doing well and the same for White-headed Duck.  The resident Ducks like Red-crested Pochard, Common Pochard, and Mallard, are all present and breeding.

So That's the end of my Birding with Trevor till the Autumn when he returns. 92 species on the list, which is not too bad as we've only done a few mornings till about 11 o'clock and the nightjars for a few hours. And we've seen not travelled more than 50+ kilometres.

Pallid Swift

Tomorrow I have a Wedding to do, so no pressure.

Enjoy the rest of the week and go birding.

Cheers Bryan
