Cabo de Palos Murcia

Sunday 26 September

We took the short journey to Murcia today to the lighthouse at Cabo de Palos. With a steady on shore wind we were hopeful of seeing Shearwaters and we didn't have to wait long. We had superb views of a Cory's Shearwater as the bird passed very close. Also five Balearic Shearwater all in an hours seawatching. Half an hour around the lighthouse provided an impressive list of spieces to add to the sea birds.
