At the tip of Illa ostral I began to see whimbrels. They were typical of this place, but I had not seen them until this moment
A couple of years ago there were many curlews and almost no oystercatcher. Now there are a lot of oystercatchers and less whimbrels.
I just saw one sandpiper. Suddenly one of the four egrets who were on the beach flew me out apparently to sea; but I realised later that only was circling the islet.
And so I walked back to...

I parked the car in the forest and went to the beach, among the yellow-legged gulls was an egret.
I kept going over the rocks of Punta de Pedrarrubia and lesser black-headed gulls appeared beside the yellow-legged ones.

And I began to see oystercatchers

I went back to the beach to go to Ostral islet taking advantage of low tide. I walked beside the gulls

And I kept seeing oystercatchers. I do not remember but I think...

From the beaches of Ribademar and Lóbrigo I went to the beach that stretches from the pier of Budion to the pier of Agañán.
There I found two egrets, one with the long nape plumes of the mate season. One of them had the long nape plumes and was larger than the other. ¿An adult male vs a juvenile?
And it showed a dominant performance, scaring the other some times, specially if the other had found a good fishing place.
They fished between flocks...

There were a lot of carrion crows and gulls on the beach of Lóbrigo.
In the beach of Ribademar there were more carrion crows and a small group of domestic pigeons.
Some lesser black-headed gull and a couple of whimbrels. Finally one of the whimbrels attacked the other that flew out. I had never seen this behavior.
