Laguna Dulce, Malaga Province.

A dip on a Little Crake but another couple for the year list.

White-headed Duck (Malvasia Cabeciblanca / Oxyura leucocephala).
On our way back from the coast we called in at Laguna Dulce where a female Little Crake ( Polluela Bastarda / Porzana parva) had been seen for a few days but I did not see it, even so I did pick up Short-toed Eagle (Culebrera Europeo / Circaetus gallicus) and Red-crested Pochard (Pato Colorado / Netta rufina) for the year list.
