We spent this afternoon birding the many Camino's between San Fulgencio and the Vistabella Road at El Hondo. The air-conditioning in the car proved to be invaluable as the temperature reached 100 degrees ! Don't get me wrong I am not complaining about the heat, but it does make it damn hard to take good pictures. Nothing out of the ordinary today, birds recorded included Bee-eaters, Rollers, Squacco Heron, Night Heron, Purple Heron, Greater-spotted Cuckoo, Cattle Egret, Little Egret and the very accommodating Little Owl sheltering from the heat in the roof space of a disused barn. Three of todays best photo's are shown here - and now the pool is calling and I am answering ................ Splash !!
