For this male European serin the temperatures of 32°C in the shadow seem to be no matter of concern. He greeted us happily trilling at the Guadalhorce-mouth. How nice!
And also about a group of altogether 16 little egrets we were most happy!
Mum mallard did not want to stay behind and desperately wanted to show us her sweet chicks;
Mrs. Gadwall didn't dare to come any closer with her 10 daughters and sons. Not a sign of the father. Well, no comment!
Well, and who is that? Also Mrs. White-headed duck has offspring!
And, ahaaa, here Dad is taking care about his family, driving away any other male furiously from his family:

Happiness in comparism is to be seen at the little ringed plovers:
Look, how carefully Mrs. Stilt is taking seat on her two eggs:
Other stilts already have their cute and widely awake offspring, which ...

A little bittern rushed by. Unfortunately I was only able to make this bad photo:
"Well gratefully she focused better at me!" Mr. Little egret is happy
It was so very nice to see all these many animal children at the Guadalhorce!
