San Pedro Salinas / El Hondo

Sunday Saunter

Last night we had heavy rain for a few hours so this morning I decided to head for the Salinas at San Pedro. I wasn't disappointed - good numbers of Avocet other waders were present along with 400+ Flamingo. Grey Plover 3, Curlew Sandpiper 30, Little Stint 7, Temminck's Stint 2, Knot 2, Bar-Tailed Godwit 14, Black-Tailed Godwit 18, Ruff 1.

Also noted : Little Tern 4, Bee-eater 1 and the biggest surprise of the morning was a single Juvenile Roller.

After lunch I visited El Hondo recording the following :

Purple Swamphen 3
Booted Eagle 2
Kingfisher 2
Bluethroat 7
Cattle Egret 100
