Searching for autumn birds at El Torcal (Costa del Sol, Malaga, Andalucia, Southern Spain)

Wintering songbirds find a feast of hawthorn berries at their arrival to El Torcal...

Have a look at some more pictures and the complete list of 21 species observed!

Ring Ouzels, Song Thrushes, Blackcaps and Robins skulk in the hawthorns at this time of year. Some of them posed but others didn’t... All of them are very secretive!

You can also live these experiences with us !!!
