Andalucia April 2012

I collected Susan and Steve from Malaga Airport around 11am and we went straight to the Nature Reserve at the river Guadalhorce, we spent 3 excellent hours having a great birding session in the bright Spanish Sunshine.  
Sue and Steve on the west embankment at the Guadalhorce.  
We started listing our birds with Spotless Starling, Monk Parakeet, Kentish Plover, Common Sandpiper, Sardinian Warbler, Red- rumped Swallow and several Serins all appearing quite quickly one after the other.  
We then walked along the beach and turned into the reserve to view the Laguna Grande from the raised hide. It was at this point that Steve took a tumble, all was OK his camera wasn’t broken.   
At the Laguna we saw Black-winged Stilt, Little and Black-necked Grebes, White-headed Duck, Gadwall, Ringed and Little Ringed Plover, Redshank, Greenshank, Dunlin and a couple of Little Egrets. A Night Heron flew over us a couple of times and a lovely Collared Pratincole landed right in front of the hide, click, click went the cameras.
