This morning I took a walk along the riverbed in nearby Torrox Costa, looking for Dartford Warblers which a friend David Jefferson had been photographing there recently. Unfortunately I did not see any today but will try again soon,. There were however quite a few Woodchat Shrikes around which somewhat made up for the lack of Dartfords. Throw in a Sardinian Warbler or two and it was not so bad after all.
I have never walked this stretch before and was pleasantly surprised at how peaceful and rural it is. One could easily forget it nestles between the built-up areas of Torrox Pueblo, Park and Costa.
This is a scene from the fields alongside the river, no sign of the urban conurbation here.
