Thursday 23rd September
Spent the morning at La Mata enjoyed watching the Osprey fishing for half and hour before it settled on the platform and allowed me to get a distant but record shot. The only other species of note was Turtle Dove x 13.
Late afternoon - Vista Bella Road came out on top again as the 2 Buff Breasted Sandpiper are still showing well along with 9 Hoopoe in the same field. Also recorded female Marsh Harrier and a single Iberian Grey Shrike. From Vista Bella I stopped over at Santa Pola Salinas where 25 Collared Pratincole, 2 Gull Billed Tern and 5 Slender Bill Gull rounded off the day.
