Hi Conor

There are many people on birdforum with much more knowledge about the region than me but I'll be happy to help. I'm just taking a delicious break (smoked eel, duck carpaccio) from a long days birding on the Ebro Delta (my 3rd ever Bluethroat is bird of the day so far) with a late flight tonight. I'll hopefully find some time over the next few days.

That sounds great. How was the Erbo Delta?

The Ebro was superb. My best day's birding in the 2nd half of 2017. I've been there quite often over the last 5 years but there seemed to be more individual birds there than on previous visits. Thousands of Glossy Ibis, thousands of heron from several species, lots of flamingos, numerous harriers, 4 Ospreys, about 20 Kingfishers, plenty of waders and evidence of migration still going on. The Bluethroat was my personal highlight, but it was really the overall quality of the birding that is making me want to extend our visit to Tarragona next October by a night, to have a couple of days on the delta.
