Torremolinos Beach, Malaga Province.

Another day on the beach.

As before we headed down to the front row of the sun beds and again other than a break for lunch spent the day on the beach. During the time there I saw Yellow-legged (Gaviota Patiamarilla / Larus Michahellis) and Mediterranean Gulls (Gaviota Cabecinegra / Larus melanocephalus), Arctic Skua (Págalo Parásito / Stercorarius parasiticus) x4, Balearic (Pardela Balear / Puffinus mauretanicus) and Cory's Shearwaters (Pardela Cenicienta / Calonectris diomedea), Northern Gannet (Alcatraz Atlántico / Morus bassanus), Sandwich Tern (Charrán Patinegro / Sterna sandvicensis), Pallid Swift (Vencejo Pálido /Apus pallidus), Monk Parakeet (Cotorra Argentina / Myiopsitta monachus) and fly past  Caspian Tern (Pagaza Piquiroja / Sterna caspia). During the day I also saw Mammoth Wasp (Megascolia maculata), a Vagrant Emperor (Anax ephippiger) and several Red-veined Darters (Sympetrum fonscolombii).
