Thanks John, I find your Cadiz thread very informative and I must get myself down to that area of Spain sooner rather than later!

I'm hoping I'll be able to keep updating this thread even though I will be back in the UK for the next four weeks - my colleague John OLiver has promised to send me his observations and photos, he is based in La Marina between the Santa Pola salinas and El Hondo and will be there until November. Any other birders visiting or living in Alicante are more than welcome to add their observations in here

To finish off my bit, I attach a piccie of an unknown species of bird seen quite frequently in Spain. Their habitat appears to be confined to roundabouts and crossroads, and they have a distinctive call which sounds like "Coo-ee Senor". They apparently thrive on certain amounts of cash, the precise quantity of which I am unable to verify as my wife wouldn't let me get close to them...
