La Mata walk about

The good weather is still with us and I'm trying to make the most of it while it lasts! Today I went for a walk around La Mata recording a few interesting species - Booted Eagle (2), Hen Harrier (1), Marsh Harrier (5+), Stone Curlew (19), Greater Flamingo (16), Avocet (numerous, picture below), Ruff (3, picture below), Little Stint (4), Kentish Plover (8), Slender-billed Gull (4) and Sandwich Tern (9).

Perhaps the best find today was 3 Richards Pipit which showed well at times, one of the birds was colour ringed with a single green ring on its right leg and a metal ring on its left. A picture of one of the individuals can be seen below.
