Cordoba City, Cordoba Province.

A day around the Mosque and City with a bit of birding on the river.
John and Sharon, day five.

The four of us headed up to the City of Cordoba and found a parking slot just down from the roman bridge. We crossed the bridge and went to the Mosque, where we had a couple of Lesser Kestrels (Cernicola Primilla / Falco naumanni) and around the city where we had some lunch before heading back across the roman bridge and home.
From the bridge we had some good views of a Kingfisher (Martin Pescador / Alcedo atthis), Little Ringed Plover (Chorlitejo Chico / Charadrius dubius) and Common Sandpiper (Andarrios Chico / Actitis hypoleucos) which were new for the trip list as well as Common Moorhen (Gallineta Común / Gallinulas chloropus), Grey Wagtail (Lavandera Cascadena / Motacilla cinerea), Grey Heron (Garza Real / Ardea cinerea), Little (Garceta Común / Egreeta garzetta) and Cattle Egrets (Garcilla Bueyera / Bubulcus ibis), Jackdaw (Grajilla / Corvus monedula) and Pallid Swift (Vencejo Pálido /Apus pallidus).
