Punta Entinas Salinas's near Roquetas de Mar, Almeria Province.

Western Reef Heron (Garceta Dimorfa / Egretta gularis), a Spanish Lifer.
 
I had missed this stunning bird yesterday but with some extra help from local birder Garry Pearson I found the bird just a few 100 meters from where I was looking and managed to get some very nice flight views.
The bird flew in from my right and then swung round and landed behind some Tamarisk bushes but before long it was up again and flew past me again and then briefly landed in view before disappearing back the way it came.
