What a nice surprise was waiting for us at the Lagoon of Campillos, because
a huge flock of Great Flamingos landed:
Directly in front of the observation place we were enthralled by the large Dragonflies with their skilled flying or
Mum Black Coot with her seven chicks:
Little Grebe had caught a big fish, killed it professionally and scarfed it in one sip:
The peaceful excursion of this Duckfamlily is
suddenly disturbed by the furious territory behaviour of the Black Coot:
But then the Great Flamingos decided to fly into the direction of the observation hut and
really landed quite close to us:
"Now watch how I am wading
ruffle my feathers
and take care of my plumage!"
"Well and eating I also have to do!"
Two more Great Flamingos now
to our biggest joy
had landed in front of our observation hut:
"Well, then we shall
show ourselves from our best behaviour!"
After a while the Flamingos took off whereby they
are like walking above the water surface
to take a run-up
before they finally lift off and
fly close above the water surface. We were enthralled about all these many beautiful scenes they performed for us:
In the same way we were enthralled as we discovered this young Short-toed Eagle between Campillos and Fuente de Piedra!
And unbelievable, this beauty
turned in low flight directly a round above our heads:
Passing Sunflower fields, which bordered on the Lagoon of Fuente de Piedra, we made ourselves after this beautiful day - more than happy with all the experienced - on the way home.
