Tuesday 01 March, Rio Genal, 1530-1630hrs, clear, cold NE wind: Following Wingspanner's sighting of a Great White Egret down on the river and a Goshawk nearby I popped along this afternoon hoping to catch up with them. Unfortunately I didn't see either but there was a Green Sandpiper and a very bright Grey Wagtail and along with an influx of House Martin and Barn Swallow a 'first-of-the-year' Red-rumped Swallow.
ps. There was a possible Goshawk above the end of Camino de Avedin this morning but by the time I had retrieved my 'emergency' binoculars from the car I was left with a 1-second glimpse as it dived down behind the trees! Another day, maybe.
