Andalucia May 2014

A superb week of birding in Southern Spain with glorious weather and some excellent sightings, the tour was based in Gaucin, Andalucia, a 'white' vilage in the beautiful Serrania de Ronda mountains. We visited rivers, lakes, cork-oak woodland, mountains, grass plains, coastal lagoons, salt pans and river estuaries. Our bird species count was 152 with some memorable sightings including: Bonelli's Eagle, Spanish Imperial Eagle, Marbled Duck, Bald Ibis, Black-winged Kite, Wryneck, Rufous Bush Robin, Rock Thrush and a good selection of warblers. Butterflies were prolific too, we managed to identify nearly 50 species without really trying, we also recorded several mammals, dragonflies, reptiles and amphibians.
