Friday 31st

My resolve to knock it on the head almost worked when I set off on a basic needs stroll. The Devil changed matters 😈 soon after as Apus and The Apodidaes struck up a few chords in the skies above. 5 Swift came flying around the hotel soon to be joined by c15 more.

So once again I was on  the southern rocky shore chalking up a couple of White Wagtails, Kentish Ps, Crested Ls & a Common Sand. Also the Adouin crew, 2 Ron Cormos, Stonechat, Linnets,  Lil Egrets & YLG.
I screwed the bobbin  and returned to the hotel for lunch to fined Apus and his ensemble had moved on.

The northern salinas provided 2 more newbies and better viewing conditions confirmed Slender - billed Gull,  3 of 'em. Incomers were Great Reed Warbler and a pr of Little Ringed Plover. 4 Marbled Duck were dozing with the Woodchat Shrike still present. Others: Hoopoe, Common Sandpiper, 4 Common Tern 2 Little Grebe et al.
