Bird watching at the Mouth of the Guadalhorce (Costa del Sol, Malaga, Andalucia, Southern Spain)

With much fewer mosquitos than expected, we have spent a wonderful morning birding at the Mouth of the Guadalhorce, with a wide variety of waders still on passage and our emblematic White-headed Ducks and Kentish Plovers.
