El Hondo Visitor Centre Wed 6th October
Decided to go for a walk around the Visitor Centre at El Hondo late afternoon/early evening. The first thing that caught my eye was the number of flava wagtails on the islands and banks of the new scrape in front of the visitor centre 100+. Heading towards the corner hide the next thing to stop me was a stunning Bluethroat (11 in total in the 2hrs I was there). At the corner hide I was watching the wildfowl and I had a Great Reed Warbler singing nearby, also from this spot I recorded 5 Glossy Ibis. Only other birds of note were 5 Bearded Tit off the boardwalks.
