The Sardinian Warblers, Sylvia melanocephala, were present all along the riverbed but, as usual, great patience was required to get a shot of one as they tend to stay in the shadowy bushes.
Black Redstarts, Phoenicurus ochruros, mainly female, were everywhere as I wandered along the riverbed.
There were several pairs of Cattle Egrets, Bubulcus ibis, down by what we laughingly call a ‘river’. I don’t think there has been any decent amount of water in it for approaching a year.
Lots of Goldfinches, Carduelis carduelis, about at the moment. Sunday was very windy and the birds, perching on flimsy plants, were constantly having to use their wings and legs to maintain their balance.
I was not the only one who decided to have a stroll along the beach!
As I meandered down the walkway to the riverbed, I spotted something in one of the (many) cracks and holes in the bridge supports. I have identified it as a Horseshoe Whip Snake.
It has been a very dry year and I can’t remember the last time I saw a decent specimen of fungus, so I was quite pleased to stumble upon this one. Although it looks a bit like half a garlic Naan bread, I believe it is a Bracket fungus, maybe a Polypore of some kind.
Quite a large colony of Cormorants, Phalacrocorax, on Laguna Grande in Málaga at the moment, most seemingly spending the whole day just standing around, hardly moving at all.
Quite a few Wagtails about, all quite happy to be near humans.
