Birding Big Day around The Route of 100 Birds (Costa del Sol, Malaga, Andalucia, Southern Spain)

Despite spring showed up in a cloudy, cold, windy and, at times, rainy day, we got a good record of 112 birds!

Have a look at many more pictures and the complete list of birds observed below!


Birding at El Chorro and the Laguna de Fuente de Piedra (Costa del Sol, Malaga, Andalucia, Southern Spain)

We had a fantastic walk to the cliffs of El Chorro, the farmlands and the Fuente Piedra Lake which will be in perfect conditions for the Greater Flamingos breeding after the rains.

Have a look at more pictures and the complete list of 71 species observed!


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

The rain gave us respite for nice observations of Spotted Crake, Stone Curlew, Audouin’s Gull and the five hirundines (Barn and Red-rumped Swallows, Crag, House and Sand Martins) on active passage!
