A few hours looking for Dragonflies and Birds.

Jayne wanted to have a wander around the centre of Malaga so I dropped her off and headed a little way North to check out a couple of rivers I had visited last year with Steve Jones from the UK. The spot I visited was completly dry near the point where I parked but I decided to have a walk upstream and see what happened, after about 500 meters there was a small trickle of water which grew to a small stream by the time I reached the KM mark.
As I walked along the first stretch I recorded Nightingale (Ruisenor Común / Luscinia megarhynchos), Cetti's Warbler (Ruisenor Bastardo / Cettia cetti), White Wagtail (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba), Little Ringed Plover (Chorlitejo Chico / Charadrius dubius) and Common Sandpiper (Andarrios Chico / Actitis hypoleucos).
Once there was a decent amount of water and things had warmed up a bit I started to find a few Dragons, nothing very interesting but it was still nice to find a reasonable selection including Blue / Common Emperor (Anax imperator), Broad Scarlet (Crocothemis erythraea), Epaulet Skimmer (Orthetrum chrysostigma), Orange-winged Dropwing (Trithemis kirbyi) and Iberian Blue-tail (Ischnura graellsii).
