This morning I took advantage of the nice weather to
have a look at the Guadalmansa-mouth, where I never had been before. A beautiful spot in the middle of all these large concrete hotel buildings , because beside of all these photographed birds I also saw a kingfisher, common redstarts, common stonechats, gray wagtails and kestrels. I was enthralled. Especially as this area is only a few kilometers away from my home::
Yellow-legged gulls taking a bath:
And imagine, I even discovered a Audouin's gull
Same as the Guadalhorce -mouth the Guadalmansa also got an owner, namely a little egret:
Fantastic, even two turnstones had been on their way at the mouth and I was so amused to watch them turning each and every stone around and sometimes even slinging it furiously away!
Also for some cormorants this area
seems to be the chosen winter habitat:
"First I had been terrible excited, but now I know, that these guys eat fish and not my olives!" Miss starling is thinking by herself:
Further to the freqent population now many wagtails coming from the north are joining:
And look, also the starlings arrived safely in the south and
are now here whistling happily their song:
In future I definitely will drive more often to the Guadalmansa-mouth. It's a beautiful place!
