On Friday we had been in Fuente de Piedra and on the way of course we made a stop at Guadalhorce to look at this cute duck family:
Goldfinch and sparrow quenching their thirst at the river, there was only little water in:
Also at the fresh water lagoon of Campillos we stopped. There is still lots of water in to the joy of Mrs. Coot who wants to raise her chicks there:
Also several gull-billed terns we met there and …
… altogether we discovered eight great crested grebes. Will we ever be that lucky to see the "taxi-ride" of the chicks on the back of their mother?
Swallows and sailors on the sky of Fuente de Piedra:
And everywhere the impatient cute barn swallows were sitting and …
... waiting for their parents to feed them:
Last year at the same time the stilts and …
… pied avocats already since long had their offspring. This time we unfortunately couldn't discover a single chick:
Also the snowy plovers were less in number than last year.
