Taken in Mallorca in May, apologies for the delay, seems somehow never got round to uploading any pics at the time :)
As mentioned previously water levels seemed very low compared to previous visits so quite an expanse of hard mud in front of various hides rather than the gloopy wet stuff :)
Kentish Plover, a few of these around though quickly chased off by Black Winged Stilts...so had to snap them whilst you can :) - Mike
