Coto Donana & Extremadura April 2018

Spain did not escape the very cold, wet weather that the rest of Europe had suffered this spring, heavy snow still covered the mountains and a biting cold wind dominated our trip with two or three days of overcast skies and rain. The weather system had curtailed bird migration too, very little was moving, all migrants were arriving late, and I guess many will not breed successfully when they do eventually arrive.
