Cartuna Beach and a couple of spots nearby, Granada Province, Spain.

A walk along the beach looking for Kentish Plovers.
 
Shag (Cormorán Mondudo / Phalacrocorax aristotelis).

After finishing the moths with Miguel I went to meet Juan and do the Kentish Plover (Chorlitejo Patinegro / Charadrius alexandrinus) count and by the time we had finished we had seen 13 birds including several young birds.

Also seen during the walk we recorded Scopoli’s Shearwater (Calonectris diomedea), Yellow-legged (Gaviota Patiamarilla / Larus Michahellis) and Audouin's Gull (Gaviota de Audouin / Larus audouinii), Shag (Cormorán Mondudo / Phalacrocorax aristotelis), Pallid Swift (Vencejo Pálido /Apus pallidus), Crested Lark (Cogujada / Galerida cristata), Greenfinch (Verderón Común / Carduelis chloris) and Serin (Verdecillo / Serinus serinus).

After the long night of Mothing I was knackered so once we had finished the survey I headed off back home.
