From the parking to the first sighting hut there is an almost a mile walk in which usually abound goldfinches.
Once in the sighting hut I saw before me a pair of great-crested grebes, perhaps the most common bird in the pond.
Already beginning to appear the first signs of spring plumage that will not be completed until February or March.
In the pond there is a good number of coots too.
A group of three black-necked grebes crossed the waters...

I went up to a bluff above Pond of San Juan to see beyond the forest of reeds surrounding the pond. I saw jackdaws far away in some other crags. In the end I saw marsh harriers, ducks, and cranes, apat of shovelers and mallards.

Finally we are in the run up to the World Watch weekend and we hope that we will be joined by many people across the planet in order that we can see as many waders/shorebirds as possible between us in one weekend.
By participating you will be showing your solidarity with other birders around the world who care about what is happening to our wader populations and by doing so you can;

I arrived to the pond of San Juan in Chinchón near Aranjuez before 9 am because the day was a public holiday. It is one of the very few natural ponds of Madrid, since the majority of ponds are abandoned sand farms. After parking the car I listened a few invisible birds into the riparian trees. But then I saw this female stonechat alongside the path. Yonder a male perched on a reed, but I was surprised by a dark red bird bellow it. It was a red avadat, red munia or strawberry...
