Cabopino, Malaga Province.

The first SPANISH LIFE of 2019.

Jayne and I headed off to the coast at Fuengirola where I was collecting my 400mm Canon lens which had been in for repair at DINASA in the town, I got there and was very pleased to see it was all ready and fully functional and at a good price.

After getting it we went down to Cabopino just 20KM or so along the coast where a Snow Bunting (Escribano Nival / Plectrophenax nivalis) had been hanging around for a week or so but several birders had been the day before and had reported it as gone. 
I however decided to go anyway and was very pleased I did as just a few minutes after arriving the Bunting was in the bag and I had had some good views before it disappeared for while.
It reappeared several times but was very wary and flighty which is a good thing looking at how many feral cats there were in the area giving the spot a fairly constant stink of cat pee, nice.
I eventually decided I had to leave the bird so I walked back around to Jayne and we spent the rest of the day shopping.
