Apologies for not posting a blog over the last few days we have been at war with Vodafone Spain who supply our internet connection. We have also been busy with day tours to Santa Pola Salinas, El Pinet, El Hondo. We are seeing lots of good birds on a daily basis and a lot of them are now busy tending chicks including the White-headed Ducks. The Black Winged Stilt chicks we saw at the Salt Pans were so cute we couldn't resist taking this picture.

The pictures to follow have all been taken over the weekend or yesterday whilst out with holidaying birders. The Rufous Bush Chat was a good addition to this mornings roll call although not too keen on the camera. We saw 3 different birds during the short time we were on site. Rollers are present in good numbers but difficult to photograph and there seems to be an abundance of Little Owl in this area at present - they are definitely not camera shy ! as you can see from the picture below.
