Mar Menor

Sunday 16th - Murcia
Went to have a look if the King Eider at Mar Menor was still present this morning. After a short search the bird was located on an upturned boat near the Albujon river mouth. Slender-billed Gull were also present. Access is from junction 794 on the AP7 signposted El Carmoli.

King Eider
A walk afterwards along one of the nearby river valleys produced,
20+ Roller, 1 sub adult Golden Eagle, 4 Greater-spotted Cuckoo and numerous Greater and Lesser Short-toed Lark, Calandra Lark, Rock Sparrow, Tree Sparrow, Bee-eater, Green Woodpecker, Quail, Little Bustard, Turtle Dove and Black-bellied Sandgrouse.
