Once the intense lockdown was lifted Elena and I stopped off at the Guadalhorce where I was delighted to see a family of Garganey, my favourite duck and one which is not seen very often around here. Here they are in company with a couple of Shelducks.
There were actually more birds present than I was expecting which was nice. I am not in the habit of posting photos of all the regular species but I admit it was pleasing to capture this little Kentish Plover on the beach as this is a breeding ground for the species, so at least they have survived thus far.
Here is a Little Ringed Plover which is quite a common species but I like the clear and obvious yellow eye-ring in this shot.
