Santa Pola

Spent the afternoon along the N332 between Santa Pola and El Pinet plenty of Flamingos but not too many waders had a flock of 36 Slender-Billed Gull - note the bird on the right has been ringed the ring number is 8FF also present 2 Adult Mediterranean Gull, 6 Audouins Gull, 14 Marbled Duck, 5 Glossy Ibis and a single Mute Swan. If anyone has any information about where the Juv Slender-Billed Gull was ringed please let me know - MARK


  1. Hi,
    The email address for ringed birds found in Spain is; . Dont expect a very quick response, I sent in around 130 Flamingo readings in early August but haven't rec the history of one bird yet. 3 Audouins Gulls took about 9 months to comr through.
