BBC Wildlife Tour - Part. 3: Mouth of the Guadalhorce

There was a big passage of Black Kites and some Booted Eagles at Montes de Malaga on the way to the Mouth of the Guadalhorce, where seagulls starred the trip (Yellow-legged, Black-headed, Slender-billed, Mediterranean and Audouin’s were present) and the first chicks of the Black-winged Stilts showed up as well as other interesting birds like the Collared Pratincole.
