Malaga Golf Channel, Malaga Province.

A couple of hours birding down on the coast.

I had thought that visiting this site during the heat of the day might be quite good for Dragonflies but there none seen. I did however see a couple of Squacco Herons (Garcilla Cangrejera / Ardeola ralloides), a single Little Egret (Garceta Común / Egreeta garzetta), Little Ringed Plover (Chorlitejo Chico / Charadrius dubius), Zitting Cisticola (Buitrón / Cisticola juncidis), European Bee-eater (Abejaruco Común / Merops apiaster), Collared (Tórtola Turca / Streptopelia decaocto) and Turtle Doves (Tórtola Europea / Streptopelia turtur), Common Kestrel (Cernicalo Vulgar / Falco tinnunculus), lots of Monk Parakeets (Cotorra Argentina / Myiopsitta monachus) and several Pallid Swifts (Vencejo Pálido /Apus pallidus) but little else. I paid a quick visit to the Golf club car park but just more Monks.
