We started today on the Sigura river where this smart female Velvet Scoter posed well for us at times and even allowed me to make a short video (see bottom of this post). Velvet Scoter are annual on the Spanish coast, nearly all the records are from the Atlantic coast and a Med bird is a rare occurrence.

The rest of the day was spent making the most of the good light, trying to get some pictures. Sighting highlights included - 150+ Golden Plover and a single Red Knot at El Pinet and 3 White-headed Duck at Clot. Enjoy the pictures, some have come out ok, others were a little distant.
