Tuesday 13 August 2013, Gaucin, mostly sunny, light S-SE wind, 29C

A cloudy morning, towards the coast, at least, gave way to a warm, humid afternoon. A trip to Malaga airport gave me the chance of a short stop at Guadalhorce and Janys to go shopping in IKEA! By the time I'd dropped Janys off and walked from the car to the hide at Laguna Grande I only had about 20min left for birding but I did see the following:

Lesser black-backed Gull, Yellow-legged Gull, Audouin's Gull, Black-headed Gull, Little Egret, Black-necked Grebe, Monk Parakeet, Black-winged Stilt, Redshank, Common Sandpiper, Curlew Sandpiper, Ringed Plover, Little-ringed Plover, Common Swift, Spotless Starling, Zitting Cisticola, Goldfinch and Greenfinch.

Interestingly, all the European Bee-eaters appeared to have left the area.
