Playa Guadalmar sea front, Malaga Province.

A quick visit to Guadalmar again.

3x Velvet Scoters (Negrón Especulado / Melanitta fusca).
This time I was on my own as Jayne was in the car having a few minutes whilst I walked out to the rocks near the Churinghito where I bumped into Luis Alberto who had his scope set up and was watching the flock of Common Scoters (Negrón Común / Melanitta nigra). After a while we found the 3x Velvet Scoters (Negrón Especulado / Melanitta fusca) stright out from the Churinghito off the rocks.
Western Osprey (Águila Pescardora / Pandion haliaetus).
Other species included White Wagtail (Lavandera Blanca / Montacilla alba), Yellow-legged (Gaviota Patiamarilla / Larus Michahellis) and Lesser Black-backed Gulls (Gaviota Sombria / Larus fuscus), Northern Gannet (Alcatraz Atlántico / Morus bassanus), Great Cormorant (Cormorán Grande / Phalacrocroax carbo) and then just as I was about to leave a Western Osprey (Águila Pescardora / Pandion haliaetus) flew along the coast looking for it's next meal.
