Malaga City, Malaga Province.

A night in the city with Jayne.

We headed off down to Malaga with Brenda and Keith as they were flying back to the UK after a few days staying with us, once we had sorted the drop off at the airport we headed into the City for a bit of shopping before going to our hotel for the night. We decided to stay over as I was heading off on a 11 day tour next day and we would have had to drive back down again in the morning early. 
Once we had checked in we decided to have a walk out to the port and back through the gardens along the main coastal road, during this stroll I had views of Monk (Cotorra Argentina / Myiopsitta monachus) and Ring-necked Parakeets (Cotorra de Kramer / Psittacula Krameri), Common Swift (Vencejo Común / Apus apus), House Martin (Avión Común / Delichon urbica) and Yellow-legged Gull (Gaviota Patiamarilla / Larus Michahellis).
We returned to the hotel and changed before returning to the port, on the way there I had a bird fly along the beach about 20 meters away from me heading East which I was 100% sure was a Rook (Graja /  Corvus frugilegus) but as the nearest possible popultion was several hundred KM north I can only think that it might be an escaped pet but there have been records in Granada Province in the past so who knows????
We continued on to the port where we had a great evening calling at a couple of bars and having a very nice meal.
