July 3rd I was going by train across Monte de El Pardo. It is and ancient hunting state of the King in Madrid. When I was crossing River Manzanares I saw the unmistakable figure of a swan. A week later I was walking to the place to see if I could see it again, what happened and allow me to present these photos.

Frustration for the Australian Wader Study Group team tracking migrating Little Curle

Posted Sunday 12th July 2015 at 14:58 by Rick and Elis
